Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Ampath Laboratories in recognition of Woman’s Month, South Coast Hospice is offering pap smear tests at just R60 (normally R180) this month.
Pap smear (also known as a Pap test) is a procedure to test for cervical cancer in women. According to the World Health Organisation, 311 000 women died from cervical cancer in 2018. Having a pap smear every two years is currently your best protection against cervical cancer.
The tests are done by Sr Heidi Thom, a Professional Nurse who has extensive experience in the early detection, support and education of cancer.
