Screening guidelines can be complex – LabCorp’s age-based test protocol for cervical cancer and STD screening can help individualize patient care.
Our age-based protocol follows the current ACOG guidelines. As ACOG guidelines evolve and change, if the test or age protocol is affected, LabCorp will update its test protocol in accordance with the guidelines.
