Despite confirmation of a link between routine Pap smear screening and a lower risk of developing cervical cancer in women older than 65 years, most US health guidelines discourage older women from undergoing routine Pap smears unless they have pre-existing risk factors.
Offering free pap smears for cervical cancer screening did not increase pap smear frequency in low income women, even though low income and socioeconomic status are more likely to predict women skipping pap smears.
Adherence to cancer screening recommendations was not found to vary by race/ethnicity and body weight/obesity. In a focused look at the influence of body mass index (BMI) as a measure of obesity, some screening disparities may be decreasing.
