Gynecological Tests Performed at Sugar Land Medical Spa
As we mentioned, Dr. Evans offers the full range of gynecological care, so you can rest assured that she and her team are equipped and experienced in any women’s healthcare test or screening you may need. Some of these tests include:
Yearly Pap Smears and Cervical Cancer Screening
It is vital to your overall health that you schedule and keep routine exams with your gynecologist. During these appointments, Dr. Evans will perform an age-appropriate screening for cervical cancer and a pap smear. Both tests use samples of cells from the cervix; however, a pap smear is used to identify abnormal cells in the cervix that could indicate cancer, and a cervical screening test specifically looks for HPV.
Breast Cancer Screening
Breast cancer screenings are the main way terminal breast cancer is prevented. During this screening, Dr. Evans specifically looks for lumps or masses in the breasts and any changes to the appearance or texture of the breast skin. If she detects something abnormal during her exam, she will recommend further testing, which could include mammography, ultrasonography, or both.
Ovarian Cancer Screening
Another test performed during a routine gynecological exam is ovarian cancer screening. During the pelvic exam, Dr. Evans will feel the ovaries and uterus to ensure their size and shape are normal. If you have symptoms of ovarian cancer or you are at a higher risk for the disease, Dr. Evans can perform a transvaginal ultrasound and the CA 125 blood test as well.
Hormone Level Testing
While many gynecologists will examine the hormone levels of their patients, Dr. Evans goes even further by taking an in-depth look specifically at the thyroid hormone, estrogen hormone, testosterone hormone, and progesterone hormone. These levels are verified through a simple blood test done in-office. If she discovers that you have a hormone imbalance, Dr. Evans can treat you with hormone replacement therapy, as she is highly experienced in this treatment.
Sexual Health Testing
Dr. Evans is passionate about sexual health. For nearly 20 years, she has helped both women and men find freedom and satisfaction in their sex lives. Because of this, she offers testing to diagnose and treat menopause, infertility testing, and screenings for STDs.
