Well-woman exams are vital, especially because they screen for breast cancer. They screen for many other serious conditions too, and other conditions that could become serious if the signs aren’t recognized. A patient might need services like a pap smear exam, a mammogram, STD counseling, and other services that can be provided during the exam.
Finally, a well-woman exam is an excellent opportunity to bring up any health concerns the patient has, like changes in her period frequency, an overactive bladder, painful menstruation, reproductive health, contraception, or other concerns.
