How does a cervical cancer screening work at Biron?

Biron offers an innovative screening protocol that starts with an HPV (human papillomavirus) test, followed by cytological triage (previously known as PAP test) when necessary, all performed from a single cervical smear.

Step 1

Make an appointment

Book your screening online. Biron healthcare professionals can issue your prescription during the appointment.

Step 2

Sampling and HPV testing

The test involves a cervical swab taken in a room that respects your privacy and comfort. The sample is then analyzed to detect the presence of HPV.

Step 4

Support and care

We will initiate a charge-free follow-up if your prescription was issued by Biron. If your prescription was delivered by an external healthcare professional, he or she will do the follow-up with you.
Support and care

Before scheduling an appointment, it is important to confirm that you are aged between 25 and 65, and that you do not have any symptoms or vaginal bleeding. Cervical cancer screening is not a diagnostic test for cancer and is generally recommended every 3 years.

How much does a cervical screening test cost?

This screening protocol includes the medical prescription, HPV sampling and testing, as well as a follow-on cytology test on the same sample if required, and care in positive screening. The entire protocol offered by Biron will cost you $249.

If you already have a medical prescription, fees start at $119, depending on the tests prescribed.

Most private insurers reimburse all or most of these charges. We recommend that you check with your insurer before beginning the process.

Why cervical cancer screening is important?

In Quebec, cervical cancer is the third most common cancer among women aged 25 to 44. This cancer can be prevented by regular screening.
