Well Woman Exams

Why do you need a yearly Well Woman Exam?

Well woman exams are the first line of defense against diseases of the female reproductive system. Many women avoid the annual exam because they want to avoid the pelvic exam. We understand, but emphasize to all of our patients that the annual exam can save their lives.

Most importantly, the annual well woman exam can detect early stages of cervical cancer. When treatment begins early the 5-year survival rate for cervical cancer is 93%. The only way to detect cervical cancer at an early stage is with the pelvic exam that is part of your annual well woman exam.

What is included in a well woman exam?
  • A physical exam
  • A breast exam: Your doctor will look for lumps or irregularities in your breasts and show you how to perform a breast self examination. This exam is important to detect early signs of breast cancer.
  • A pelvic exam: Your doctor will examine your reproductive organs to determine the size and position of your ovaries, uterus, cervix, and vagina. This exam helps detect early stage cancers, causes of inflammation, sexually transmitted diseases, and other problems particular to the female reproductive system.
  • A pap smear test: During the pelvic exam, we will swab the cervix and send these cervical cells to the lab to check for pre-cancerous growth. The pap smear can save your life.
  • STD Testing

Your doctor needs to know all of your healthcare concerns to best care for you, and an annual exam is the ideal time to share issues, problems or concerns. If you haven’t had an annual well woman exam in the last year, please call us today at (940) 723-8151.
