PAP TESTS...okay, so for most of us the pap test experience does not translate into the image below, but no matter how we feel about them - they're are essential!

Did you know that In Australia, the number of women diagnosed with cervical cancer has halved since the introduction of organised screening in 1991? However, 7 in 10 Victorian women who develop cervical cancer either never had a Pap test or did not have them regularly prior to diagnosis. Cervical cancer is one of few cancers that can be largely prevented through screening (Pap tests), yet over a third of women do not have them regularly.
PapScreen Victoria recommends that all women who have ever been sexually active should have a Pap test every two years between the ages of 18 and 70, or from two years after becoming sexually active, whichever comes later.

So, that said - do you need a pap test? Don't put it off - make an appointment with your GP or ask the receptionist if your clinic has a women's health nurse who could perform the test. GLCH has a women's health nurse in Lakes Entrance. Call 5155 8300 and press 1 for medical services for more information and to book your appointment #yourhealthourcommitment #since1975 #paptestsareimportant
