pap smeer

If i had to go for a pap smeer would this pick up irregularities in my ovaries? I would like to have a pap smeer to check for cervical cancer but would also like to test for cervical cancer.

The pap smear only checks for cervical cancer. Ovarian cancer is difficult to screen for, but regular pelvic examinations would help.
