Early Detection Saves Lives

Make an appointment

Gynaecological cancers are amongst the top 10 most common cancers affecting women in Singapore today. 

Regular screening and early detection can help save your life.

Women between the ages of 25 and 69 are advised to get a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer.

Under the Enhanced Screen for Life Programme, if you hold a valid CHAS card, the Singapore Cancer Society will be funding the cost of screening ($2)*.

Ladies, take charge of your health and get screened!

FAQ

How do I know if I need a pap smear screening?

Who is eligible for the Singapore Cancer Society funded pap smear screening?

  • Ladies between the age of 25 – 69
  • Hold a valid CHAS card
  • Received the Screen for Life letter of invitation from the Health Promotion Board (HPB)

Where do I go for my pap smear?

You can go to participating Raffles Medical clinics and clinics under the Enhanced Screen for Life Programme. Please call the clinic prior to make an appointment.

If I am not a CHAS card holder, what do I pay for the pap smear screening?

Under the Enhanced Screen for Life programme, Singapore Citizens need to pay $5 for the screening. Please present your letter of invitation from HPB and your NRIC upon registration at the clinic.

How do I prepare for my screening?

If you're still menstruating, schedule your Pap smear appointment 2 weeks after the start of your menstrual period, or up to about a week before your next menstrual period is due. This is the ideal time to have a Pap smear when the clearest, cleanest sample of cervical cells can be obtained.

If you have reached menopause, you may schedule a Pap smear at any time.

Things To Avoid

48 hours before your Pap smear, please avoid:

  • Douching
  • Swimming
  • Taking a tub bath
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Lubricants
  • Spermicides
  • Vaginal creams
  • Vaginal medications
  • Tampons

These activities or products can irritate the cervix. Avoiding these activities will help ensure adequate cell sample collection. Other factors that may affect Pap smear results include infection and the intake of medication such as digitalis and tetracycline.

What To Wear For Your Appointment

Please wear a two-piece outfit. It may also be a good idea to bring along a panty liner or a thin sanitary pad as light bleeding or spotting may occur after a Pap smear.

Prices listed are inclusive of GST. Prior appointment is required. Terms and conditions apply.
