The RMCHP offers services for screening and treatment of cervical dysplasia.
Dysplasia is a term used to describe the appearance of abnormal cells on the cervix. These abnormal cells are normally first detected by a pap smear. Familiar to most women, Pap smear tests are normally a part of the annual well-woman visit.
While dysplasia is not cancer it can develop into cancer of the cervix. Cervical dysplasia does not cause symptoms, and varies in severity; therefore regular screening and early diagnosis are essential to prevent cancer. There are many ways to treat dysplasia, depending on a variety of factors, such as its severity, age of the patient and the presence of any other problems. The RMCHP provides pap smear testing, and if necessary, diagnosis and treatment of dysplasia.
