Keywords:cervical biopsy, cervical cancer, cervical intraepithelial neoplasm, cervical screening
Aims: To determine the detection rate of cervical lesion by cervical Pap test and to see the ongoing trend of Pap testing in the hospital.

Epithelial cells abnormalities were seen in 6.1% (104) and 4.83% (86) in first and second year respectively. Cervical biopsy sample in first year and second year had precancer and cancerous lesion in 29.55% (94 out of 318) and 22.01% (59 out of 268) in second year.
