A Pap smear, which is also known as a Papanicolau test, Pap test, cervical smear, or smear test, is a screening test used in gynecology that checks for cancerous or precancerous conditions of the cervix. The cervix is the lowermost part of the uterus, which protrudes slightly into the vagina and is attached to it by the cervical ligaments. From below, the cervix appears somewhat like a small pink washbowl with a minute hole in the center.
