    Pap Secret: Thai hospital gives masks to women embarrassed about getting Pap smear


    Pap Secret: Thai hospital gives masks to women embarrassed about getting Pap smear

    The women who received a free Pap smear test at a hospital in Kamphaeng Phet province last week didnít need to feel embarrassed about getting an absolutely normal medical check, because they could hide behind creepy green masks.

    This head-scratching initiative, called ďThe Mask Pap Smear,Ē was started by Sa Kaew sub-district office and the Nong Krot Hospital, to decrease the awkwardness between the doctors and patients who are shy about getting a gynecological exam.

    The project was targeted at women aged 30-70.According to sub-district governor Suwan Supakijchareon, the initiative was successful because many women showed up to get free Pap smears, now that they could wear a mask and didnít need to let the doctors see their faces, TipcableTV reported

    A Pap smear is named after Georgios Papanikolaou, the doctor who determined that this was a useful way to detect signs of cervical cancer. A Pap smear, also called a Pap test, is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. It tests for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells on the cervix
