A 39-year-old female asked:

My gyn found a mass on my left ovary. pap results from that same visit came back as abnormal(colposcopy soon). are these two issues related?

Unlikely: Most abnormal pap smears are secondary to the hpv virus and most adnexal masses are benign cysts. These two conditions are not related.
