A new study suggests fewer women are being screened for cervical cancer.
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic say less than 67-percent of women ages 30 to 65 had regular Pap tests.
For those in their 20s - it was just over half. It's not clear if access to the screening, awareness or both are to blame.
Experts recommend women ages 21 to 65 get a Pap test every three years. Another option is to get a Pap-HPV co-test every five years.
