Pap smear: The pap smear is a screening for cervical cancer. Women should begin screening at age 21. After that, subsequent screenings are recommended every three years, as long as the woman has a healthy immune system. After 30 years old, pap smears are recommended once every five years, until the age of 65. After age 65, the majority of women no longer require a pap smear.
Pelvic exam: This can be done with or without a pap smear. A pelvic exam includes examining the vagina, cervix, and vulva for signs of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or other conditions.
Breast exam: A breast exam can be used to check for abnormal lumps or signs of breast cancer.
Mammogram: In women with low or average risk for breast cancer, a mammogram is recommended every two years between the ages of 50 and 74. Earlier and more frequent testing may be recommended based on your personal history and family history of breast cancer. (Mayo Clinic)
