Cervical Cancer: Screening in Women Older Than Age 65

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against screening for cervical cancer in women older than age 65 who have had adequate prior screening and are not otherwise at high risk for cervical cancer. This is a D recommendation, which means the USPSTF recommends against the service. There is moderate or high certainty that the service has no net benefit or that the harms outweigh the benefits.
