Cervical cancer was once the leading cause of death among women in this country.
But along came the pap test, and the ability to detect it before it became life threatening.
The test can even show abnormal, or "precancerous" cells-- called cervical dysplasia.
Even that, though, can be pretty traumatic for some women, diagnosed with pre-cancerous cells in the cervix.
