Health Checks For Women

by Karen Barratt, April 1998
We have been told about an important health check offered for women by the Public Hospital in Paroikia. ‘PAP Tests’, which help the early detection of cervical cancer, are carried out free of charge on an annual basis.

I know that many of us think that we would probably have to go to Athens for such a thing, pay privately, or even wait until we make a trip home. However, an efficient service exists right here on Paros!

To take advantage of this, it is advisable to go to the Hospital early, around 9.00am, and go to Room 7. Ask for the ‘Test Papanikolaou’ (yes, it was a Greek doctor who developed this test!). The gynaecologist suggests that you should undergo the test mid-cycle i.e. 14 days after your last period. The results are received in three weeks.
