Citología vaginal - Risks

Nombres alternativos

Prueba de Papanicolaou (frotis de Pap)

Consideraciones:

La citología vaginal no es un examen 100% preciso. El cáncer de cuello uterino se puede pasar por alto en un pequeño número de casos. Afortunadamente, este tipo de cáncer se desarrolla de manera muy lenta en la mayoría de las mujeres y las citologías vaginales de control deben identificar cambios preocupantes a tiempo para el tratamiento.

Verifique que su médico sepa acerca de todos los medicamentos que usted está tomando. Algunos, entre ellos estrógenos y progestágenos, pueden afectar las citologías vaginales.
