Pap smear testing allows healthcare providers to detect precancerous cells early, making it possible to eradicate the threat before cancer occurs.
Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that new Pap smear technology may have resulted in an increased number of misread Pap smear tests and instances of misdiagnosed cervical cancer.
After having a Pap smear, numerous women were told they didn’t have cervical cancer when in reality they did.
Thousands of women who have been diagnosed with active or advanced stages of cervical cancer following a false negative Pap smear are pursuing defective product lawsuits.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cervical cancer following an inaccurate (that is, a false negative) Pap smear, you may be entitled to compensation.

Pap smears have three possible results: normal (the cervical cells appear to be healthy), uncertain (requiring further testing), and abnormal (requiring either further testing or a procedure to remove the risk). If you’ve received a “normal” result when precancerous or cancerous cells were present, that is known as a false negative.
You may be asking yourself, Can an abnormal Pap smear be wrong too? The answer is yes. Abnormal results usually require further testing to ensure that there is an actual risk.
There are Pap smear dangers arising from new methods that use screening technology to increase efficiency in labs. With modern instruments in place, only a sampling of each Pap smear slide is actually reviewed by human eyes. If irregular cells are not within the featured area, the Pap smear results will be inaccurate, potentially leading to false negatives.
If your cervical cancer diagnosis occurred after you received a false negative Pap smear, you may be entitled to compensation.
