A smear Test is a test for women only to see if they have cancer. The Doctor of the smear test stretche's the womens vagina and brushes around inside and then tests it and they receive the results a few weeks after.

A smear test or Cervical Screening Test is done for the purpose of detecting changes in the cells of the cervix. The test is not a cancer test, but is a general health test of the cervix. Only a small number of changes or abnormalities are due to cancer.
