Not necessarily: Squamous metaplasia is simply the replacement of one normal squamous cell with another by pathological definition. What that means is that squamous cells are the main component of the outside of the cervix (exocervix) and is normal. This is not a precursor to CIN also known as dysplasia, which can lead to HPV associated carcinoma.
