This is a question I have been asked more than any other in the last few weeks. I have actually seen it come up frequently in a local salon. It can be a very uncomfortable experience, and if you suffer from the conditions of having an enlarged prostate, you can imagine how painful it can be during the procedure. I have to say that I have never had a pap smear done. I’m not even sure I want it.
I have heard that the best place to have your pap smear is at the hospital, but it’s true that there are other options, too. A pap smear done under a local anesthetic can be the most comfortable of the lot. The cost at the hospital is pretty much the same as having a local.
I can’t say that I have ever had a pap smear done, but I have heard and read that it’s a great idea to have one after an operation. My brother had a pap smear done on his prostate and it helped him to make the decision that it was time to have a pap smear done again. I wish I had had a pap smear done on my prostate.
Pap smears are often recommended by urologists for patients who are facing potentially invasive and expensive procedures like a prostate biopsy. We’re not doctors, but as I mentioned, I’ve heard and read that its a great idea to have one after an operation. My brother had a pap smear done on his prostate and it helped him to make the decision that it was time to have a pap smear done again. I wish I had had a pap smear done on my prostate.
After an operation on prostate cancer, your doctor may encourage you to get a pap smear to check your health. The purpose of the pap smear is to check for any abnormalities (e.g. precancerous cells, blood clots) that may have been missed in the operation, as well as to check your blood count, prostate-specific antigen, and your urinalysis.
I wish you had have had a pap smear done on your prostate. You might have avoided some of the problems you had with the cancer.
You should have had a pap smear done on your prostate. If you haven’t, you should get one done on your prostate soon. If you had it done and it was cancerous, you might have avoided needing a biopsy or surgery.
Pap smears are part of the routine routine for everyone at some point in their lives, and can often help diagnose diseases as well as determine if they are cancerous. Some people think they take a long time, but usually the most important part of the pap test is the biopsy. This is a small, biopsy-sized needle that is inserted into the suspicious area.
Pap smears are very common. Doctors used to routinely do them all the time. Now there is a growing movement among doctors to only do them for certain conditions. Some of the conditions that will generally only get a pap smear done include ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, and endometrial cancer. The procedure itself usually takes no more than 30 minutes and is painless.
The pap test is still relatively uncommon around the world. In the U.S. alone, only about 2% of women in the United States get a pap smear done. In Canada, the ratio is even lower, at just under 1%. In Asia, the ratio is even lower, with only 1%, even though this ratio is higher in Asia than the U.S.
