Cervical Cancer Prevention: An Update on New Screening and Risk-Based Management Guidelines
Cervical cancer prevention has changed significantly in recent years with less frequent screening and the addition of HPV testing as a stand-alone test along with the option for the Pap and HPV test together as cotesting. This session will review the appropriate use of Pap testing, the rationale for HPV testing along with the Pap (co-testing) in women 30 and older and the use of HPV testing as a primary screen (stand-alone test) in women 25 and older by two of the FDA approved HPV tests. There will be a discussion of the new American Cancer Society Guidelines for screening and a review of the new 2019 ASCCP Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines for management of abnormal screening and subsequent follow-up with case studies. These guidelines are a shift from results-based to risk-based management relative to the risk of an existing CIN 3 (pre-cancer).
