A 30-year-old female asked:

What does the results from cervix, 6 o'clock, biopsy: benign squamous epithelium and endocervical glands which says specimen b: fragment(s): 1 mean?

Repeat question; here is a more detailed reply. 6 o'clock is the location of the biopsy, the lower edge of the cervix, as viewed by the examiner. The microscopic analysis shows entirely normal tissue. "Specimen B" probably may mean a second biopsy sample, but too small ("fragments") to interpret a result, but that doesn't matter. Your biopsy is normal. Discuss with your doctor if still concerned.
