Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation. Atypical endocervical cells seen.On my pap smear result.Am i at risk to cervical cancer?

HPV test?: Unfortunately, anyone who has had genital contact is at risk for cervical cancer because the human papilloma virus is so widespread. Usually when we find atypical cells on a pap smear, we reflexively test for hpv. If it is positive, then you do have a small risk for dysplasia or precancer, but if it is negative, you have almost no risk. If your hpv test is (+), you will need follow up. ...Read more

Every month probably about 7-10 days before my period, i get brown bloody discharge that lasts for about 5 days. As i'm a teen, is it cervical cancer?
