Another huge letdown for women. I wonder if “they” will push so hard for Gardisil vaccinations now. There are plenty of women that need paps long before 21. And a lot of doctors will not prescribe birth control without a pap.
I wonder what is next on the medical agenda?? Will men start foregoing prostate exams?? All in the name of the mighty dollar.
I guess it will cost the government less if people are dropping like flies and there are less people to treat.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — The new mammogram recommendations out earlier this week caused quite an uproar. Now comes another change in screening tests for women — this one for cervical cancer.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) releases new guidelines Friday, saying women don’t need their first cervical cancer screening — or Pap test — until they’re 21 years old. And, they don’t need followup examinations as often as previously recommended.
The ACS expects to release its new guidelines in late 2011.
