Cancer Screening

Click Below to listen to this article

At BioConnect Medical , cancer screening involves a range of tests and exams aimed at detecting early signs of cancer in the reproductive organs of a person’s body. These may include the cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina, and vulva.

The most common cancer screening test performed is a Pap smear or Pap test. This test involves collecting a sample of cells from the cervix to check for any abnormal changes that could indicate the presence of cervical cancer or pre-cancerous conditions. Depending on a patient’s age and medical history, our Physician, Dr. Corona may also recommend HPV testing in conjunction with a Pap test, as HPV (human papillomavirus) is a common cause of cervical cancer.

In addition to Pap and HPV testing,  Dr. Corona may also perform a pelvic exam to check for any abnormalities in the reproductive organs. This may include a manual examination of the vagina, cervix, and uterus, as well as a visual examination using a speculum. A transvaginal ultrasound or biopsy may also be performed to further evaluate any abnormalities.

It’s important to note that cancer screening recommendations may vary depending on a person’s age, medical history, and other factors. It’s best to discuss cancer screening with Dr. Corona or your healthcare provider to determine which tests are appropriate and how often they should be performed.
