Abnormal Skin Biopsy Results
Preventing Cancer: It's VERY important to get a colposcopy if your pap is abnormal. A colposcopy is a speculum exam where special stains and magnifying lenses are used to look for pre-cancers on your cervix.

A skin biopsy is a way of getting a sample of skin for diagnostic purposes. There are two main ways of doing this. Shave biopsy. A blade is used to cut across the skin. It can leave a scar a bit like a golf divot. Punch biopsy. A device that looks like a little cookie cutter is used to take a cylinder of skin. This goes all the way through the skin and is ...Read more

Doctor Speak: There is nothing scary in those results. "Benign endocervical tissue" means there is normal, non-cancerous tissue from the endocervix. "Cervical Squamous mucosa" is simply normal skin from the outer cervix. "Reactive epithelial changes" mean that they see evidence of a reaction by the skin to irritation or injury. Hyperkeratosis is an increased amount of keratin in the skin. ...Read more

Abnormal PAP: We do pap smears to screen for cervical cancer cells. The pap smear has helped us reduce cervical cancer to very small numbers. We think that cancer forms in stages over many years (about 10-15). The cells get progressively abnormal before they become cancerous and this is the opportunity that the pap smear gives us. Remove/kill the abnormal cells before cancer develops. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pap result: mild inflam. background, superficial & intermed. squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. paps. Colposcopy needed?
No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Peripheral neuropathy symptoms for 3 years. multiple EMG/NCV/Skin biopsy negative. FINALLY repeat skin biopsy WAY below normal. is this unusual?
Well sort of: Like I tell patients all of the time, if you have diabetes or a vitamin deficiency, then pinning down the cause of a neuropathy is easy. Anything else can be quite a challenge and there are literally hundreds of causes for neuropathy otherwise. I'm sure at this point you had a thorough work up, but seeking quaternary care (e.g. Mayo Clinic) is not inappropriate at this point ...Read more

Many things: The microscopic interpretation of a liver biopsy can tell you a type of disease that is present, whether there is tumor present or not, and a number of other disease entities, usually based on doing special stains or studies. However, liver enzymes are much more easily determined by serology (blood or serum) tests that do not require a liver biopsy. ...Read more
