A 42-year-old female asked:
Does this mean my margins are clean: note: the lesion extends to the endocervical margin. Ki67 and p16 immunostains were done?

Maybe not: According to this report, the lesion that was removed from your cervix extended up to the margin of the endocervix (the part of the cervix that can't be seen, higher up). This is usually followed by a repeat pap smear with an endocervical biopsy a few months after the procedure you just had. How soon depends upon the severity of the lesion.
