Choosing Wisely: Cervical Screening Tests and Treatments to Avoid
By Kelly Young
The American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology has identified five scenarios in which cervical screening or treatment is unnecessary. The recommendations — part of the Choosing Wisely campaign — include the following:
Vaginal cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) screening shouldn't be performed in women who've had a hysterectomy that included cervix removal, unless hysterectomy was for high-grade cervical dysplasia or cancer.
Pap tests or HPV screening shouldn't be conducted in immunocompetent patients aged 20 and under.
Screening tests shouldn't be ordered for low-risk HPV types.
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 1 should not be treated in women aged 21–24.
Pap tests or HPV screening shouldn't be performed annually in women who are immunocompetent and have previously had negative screening results. The group says a screening interval of 3 years may be more appropriate.
