A 41-year-old female asked:

What does squamous epithelium with reactive changes mean in a cervical biopsy?

Pretty normal: The tissue sample obtained with such a study is squamous epithelium. If it is slightly irritated it would be reported as reactive change. The wording does not suggest any form of cancer. You should really discuss this with the doc who did the procedure.
