The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening women who have not had a hysterectomy for cervical cancer between the ages of 21 to 65 years with cytology (Pap smear) every 3 years or a combination of cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing every 5 years. Foreign-born women were less likely to have received a Pap smear compared with U.S.-born women. This article reviews barriers to cervical cancer screening for foreign-born women.
