Cervical Cancer Screening
Women have been told for years to get an annual pap smear to screen for cervical cancer.

Dr. John Lovecchio, Chief, Gynecologic Oncology, North Shore-LIJ Health System, and Dr. Andrew Menzin, Dir., Gynecologic Oncology, NSUH & Assoc. Chief, Gynecologic Oncology, North Shore-LIJ give us their insight on why these guidelines were changed.
