Well Woman Exam
A well woman exam is an important part of taking care of any woman's health and should be scheduled with a gynecologist once a year.
Well woman exams, or an annual visit, are an easy ongoing way to promote a healthy lifestyle and allows for early disease detection.
A well woman exam will include:
A Physical Exam
A Breast Exam
Your doctor will examine you for lumps or irregularities in your breasts as well as show you how to perform self exams.
A Pelvic Exam
While sometimes uncomfortable for women, the pelvic exam is an important part of your visit. This allows your doctor to examine the reproductive organs and helps in detecting early stage cancers, sexually transmitted diseases, and other problems related to the reproductive system.
A Pap Smear Test
A pap smear test is performed during the pelvic exam. During this exam a swab is used to gather cells from the cervix for testing of precancerous cells.
