    Thanks, the "Supreme Health Check Program" at HK$3,995 does seem like a very comprehensive test at a reasonable price level. Looks promising!

    Pap-smear? It is a test for early detection of cervical cancer, which is a nasty kind of cancer. It is very routine and women should get it done each year.

    In some countries, it's done twice a year. And it is unfortunately not covered by my health insurance, which tends to make me quite angry.

    Well the cost for the pap smear under the family health service is $100 I think which seems a bargain. Thanks Mary2 for posting the link

    Even the great Anita Mui (HK singer) died of cervical cancer (age 40). wonder how many ladies actually go get tested for early detection. If its only 100HKD, I hope many do go.

    Her career came to an abrupt end in 2003 when she announced that she had cervical cancer. She died later that year at the age of 40.[3][5] It was then understood that she had developed the disease due to a familial genetic disposition as her sister Ann had died of the same condition in 2000 at age 40 as well.
