Pap Smear

Pap smear helps in the early detection and prevention of cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer is the 10th most common female cancer in Singapore, with over 200 new diagnoses each year. Early detection is key – schedule a Pap smear test today.

HPV Vaccine

Cervical cancer is primarily caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, which transmit primarily through skin-to-skin contact, particularly during sexual activity.

HPV is common and nearly everyone will get it at some point in life. Although our immune systems are often capable of eliminating HPV infections by ourselves, persistent infections by high-risk strains, such as HPV 16 and HPV 18, can lead to the development of cervical cancer over time.

To protect against these high-risk strains, the National Childhood Immunisation Schedule (NCIS) and National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) recommend HPV vaccination for all females. Females aged 9 to 26 are advised to get a HPV2 vaccine, while females aged 9 to 45 are encouraged to get a HPV9 vaccine.
