Abnormal Pap.: Your pap is adequate in its amount and type of cells but the cells show evidence of infection or inflammation. You should have had the result of the high risk HPV test included in the report. This would let you know if HPV, the cause of cervical cancer, could possibly be the cause of the abnormality. If negative, most likely cause is inflammation from vaginitis/vaginosis.... No cause for concern.

HPV likely present: Hello Carlos When a pap smear is done, the doc needs a good sample and needs to sample from the transformation zone. This is the zone where the cells of the surface of the cervix transform from one type (epithelial cell) to another type (glandular). So this tells you that your doc got a good sample. But the EPI CELL ABNORM means that HPV has cause changes that need to be studied more.
