This is common in smokers. Other such changes can produce tissue such as ...Read more
Pap smear and it came back with HSIL then biopsy which came back cervix uteri/uterine cervix squamous metaplasia/epidermioid met/epidermailzation?
Further evaluation: Consider further evaluation, possibly a LEEP procedure. At a minimum, repeat pap in 6 -12 months with HPV testing.
Abnormal cells: These are abnormal cells but they are not cancerous at present. So you need it rechecked as instructed by your doctor as there may be increased risk of developing cancer in this location in the future.
Atypical squamous metaplasia result from cervical biopsies, what are the chances of getting a cancer?
Fair: Nobody knows the numbers, but you need to be fully compliant with follow-up; this essentially guarantees that if a cancer does develop, it is highly probably that it will be caught early enough for cure.

Usually biopsy: When a pap interpretation of lsil is given, it is most often followed by a cervical biopsy and colposcopy (inspection with magnifying glass). If the look and biopsy confirm lsil and no high grade lesion, then this may be all you need. If biopsy or coloposcopy is concerning for high grade sil, then a bigger excision (cone/leep) may be needed. Talk with your doc / provider to learn what is best.
If HPV is dormant in cervix, is it also dormant in mouth and anus squamous regions? Diagnosed with HPV March this year. Don't know much about it.
Very complex issues: Most women with cervical HPV have it only there. Anal HPV is most common in the receptive partners in anal sex; these probably are the only ones at substantial risk of anal cancer. Oral HPV is one fifth as frequent as genital. Both sites apparently can be infected indirectly, without direct sexual exposure. At any site, immunity clears most infections, but HPV DNA may persist ("dormant").See 1 more doctor answer

Inflammation and: Cervicitis is inflammation of uterine cervix. Most commonly, cervicitis is the result of an infection, although it can also be caused by injury or irritation (as a reaction to the chemicals in douches and contraceptives, for example, or a forgotten tampon).

Ask yiour Gynecologi: The doctor who did the test can explain it better. But basically the test is looking for cancer cells which your report says you do not have at the present time. But continue to follow with annual pap tests so that this abnormalityy (minimal abnormality) resolves or gets monitored for any worsening. It is all a very slow process, not of any immediate concern but not always predictable.
Cervical: Yes, by an uninitiated pathologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Benign / worrisome: Usually this is a pap smear finding. Metaplasia is replacement of a normal mature tissue type with another normal mature tissue type, in the cervix the columnar epithelium in the endocervix replaced by a squamous type. It is usually caused by the hpv virus and depending on the strain may present a slightly increased risk for progression toward something that is actually dangerous.
Change in the lining: Bladder squamous metaplasia means there are changes in the cells of the lining in the bladder, in a non-cancerous way, presumed due to frequent or ongoing irritation of the lining. The irritation is thought to be from chemicals like nitrosamines, cancer-causing toxins from smoking, bladder infections, bladder catheters, etc... Metaplasia itself should not be painful, so a urologist should examine.
