Yeast=inflammation: Your Pap result indicates that you do not have precancerous lesions or dysplasia which is the main purpose of Pap screening. Yeast infections are common and should resolve quickly after treatment

Probably normal: Presence of a Pap failing to reveal malignant cells but rather showing inflamed cells not definitive for dx. Inflammation common from yeast and HPV but neither tells Ca or not. Pap stain only 60% accurate in defining premalignant cells so after infection clears, HPV to be tested and periodic repeat Paps needed. New test looking for squamous antigen being developed and is 100% accurate in dx.
