Is a smear test necessary after hysterectomy?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 07/17/2020

A Pap test is not necessary when hysterectomy is performed as treatment for a non-cancerous disorder.

However, the same is not true when the uterus is removed because of a cancerous or precancerous condition of the cervix. In these situations, your doctor recommends continuing to perform routine Pap tests.
