Leukoplakia: I am not an MD but Leukoplakia is a characteristic of tissue (meaning white patch). What this from a Pap smear? If so they probably described the tissue found and send it off for biopsy. Maybe some MDs can chin in here? Ask you doctor if you are worried

Cervical leukoplakia: is a condition in which thick, white patches form on the cervix. It should be always biopsied to rule out high-grade CIN or malignancy.

No: Leuokoplakia describes a white patch covering a mucous membrane. It is not a disease.
