"Pap" in "Pap test" is short for Papanicolaou, the name of the doctor who developed it. A sample of tissue is taken from high in the vagina (painlessly - the tissue at the site has almost no pain receptors) to check for early changes to the cells, largely caused by HPV (human papillomavirus) that could possibly lead to cancer. At this stage the problem is completely treatable.
