Can a recent herpes diagnosis cause a pap result to be lsil?

Can a recent herpes diagnosis cause a pap result to be lsil?

Yes: Lsil (low grade squamous intraepithleal lesion) is a low grade category which includes hpv (human papilloma virus effect), mild dysplasia (cin-i) and often the cytology can be difficult to interpret if there is a lot of inflammation. So yes, a recent herpes infection if on the cervix can obscure the results and reflex to lsil (lgsil). Either way, you'll get follow-up, just follow your doc's plan. ...Read more

Will a recent herpes diagnoses cause a pap result to be lsil?

Will a recent herpes diagnoses cause a pap result to be lsil?

Possibly.: Pap smears detect many things. What they are looking for is cancerous cells which have been infected by the human papillomavirus or hpv. Other infections are seen, like chlamydia, and herpes. These can alter the appearance of cells, resulting in a mistaken diagnosis, or they can appear together. Therefore, patients usually get treated for something like herpes and go for another pap. ...Read more

Can chlamydia cause my pap to come back with lsil mild dysplasia?

Can chlamydia cause my pap to come back with lsil mild dysplasia?

Yes, but the reason : Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease. Lgsil is caused by hpv, also a sexually transmitted disease. Therefore, if you have one form of std, you could easily have another. After treatment, you should use condoms and barrier methods of contraception to prevent stds--and perhaps talk to potential partners before sex so you don't get another infection. Safe sex! ...Read more

Possible reasons for abnormal pap lsil, no hpv? Could yeast infection be the cause?

Possible reasons for abnormal pap lsil, no hpv? Could yeast infection be the cause?

Low risk viral type: Most commercially available hpv dna tests diagnose 12 or 13 strains of 'high risk' hpv. These are strains most likely to cause cancer. It is possible to have lsil (hpv changes) in a pap where abnormal cells are present but the viral strain causing the warty changes is not one of the 12 or 13 types in the test kit being used. Low risk viral types (6 ; 11) cause warts but have negative dna tests. ...Read more

Pap smear squamous cells lsil. Biopsy shows inflammation. Doc gave flagyl but couldn't say what caused it or why it showed squamous cells. Any expl?

LSIL: There's often non-specific inflammation in a young woman, and if there's no specific organism and no symptoms, it's not really a reason to worry. I'm much more concerned that you follow up with the LSIL which is the first stage to getting cancer, so that we can be sure it doesn't get out of control. I'm glad you're getting checked and wish you the best. ...Read more

If lsil is caused by HPV and genital warts why do doctors let it go away on its own and act like its no big deal?

If lsil is caused by HPV and genital warts why do doctors let it go away on its own and act like its no big deal?

LSIL: Lsil is caused by hpv. But there is no cure for hpv and many times your immune system will clear the virus on its own. Given the likelihood of spontaneous resolution, and the fact that a pathology if lsil is benign, most gynecologists would not intervene. ...Read more

It : It is unlikely that it is related to hpv. It may be that you need a different preparation of birth control pills to control your bleeding. It would be worthwhile to discuss this with your prescriber. You may need different pills with a different formulation. Be sure your pap smear is up to date while you are there. ...Read more

I'm HPV positive with LSIL. Should I tell my bf that I have HPV? I already showed him my LSIL result.

HPV: HPV is a very common virus. It is probably more dangerous for women than men. You are wise to keep a close watch on this with your GYN. It would be best to inform your boyfriend and all sexual partners that you have HPV. Use of a condom can help prevent it's spread. If you BF were to develop condylomata they can be easily treated with cryotherapy, laser ablation or excision. ...Read more

Should I tell my bf of 8 months that I recently received a HPV positive result? He told me he was clean but does not seem scared of LSIL result.

Probably should tell: HPV causing abnormal pap usually is harmless in men. He may already know or assume you have HPV; it's the only cause of LSIL. He should be on the lookout for genital warts, and at least for that reason you should make sure he understands. There's no need to take precautions against transmission to him; he's already been repeatedly exposed and probably infected, or maybe was the source of your HPV. ...Read more

Will my body eventually suppress HPV? I am 24 years old with recently diagnosed HPV (January 2015), LSIL from December 24, 2014. Chances of eradication?

See below: Your immune system can control viral replication but elimination of dysplastic lesions is the goal in treating squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs). There are generally two options after the diagnosis of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions has been confirmed by biopsy: follow up with repeat Pap tests every 4-6 months, or local excision such as LEEP biopsy ...Read more

No cancer: The report states that the tissue did not have any serious issues.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

24yo. Became sex. Active @ 22yrs-1partner. 1.5yrs ago had a pap, showed LSIL. Lost insur. So I didn't get another. Could I have cancer now? No cigs.

24yo. Became sex. Active @ 22yrs-1partner. 1.5yrs ago had a pap, showed LSIL. Lost insur. So I didn't get another. Could I have cancer now? No cigs.

Doubtful...but: The cases of cervical cancer I've seen over the years have always been in women who had a bad pap but never came in for the recommended follow-up. So I always worry about women who disappear after a bad pap. Most states have a program that pays for the follow-up for women without insurance. However, the absolute risk of cervical cancer at age 24 after an LSIL pap is very low. Best wishes! ...Read more

Does LSIL always mean you have hpv? I had an abnormal pap just come back

If my Pap smear indicates LSIL but my hpv test was negative, does it mean I still have hpv?

It could: These are too different things. LGSIL means that abnormal cells were seen on the pap smear. Your HPV test looked for specific types of High risk HPV. It does not test for all kinds of HPV. Regardless the management is the same. The next step is a microscope exam of the cervix called a Colposcopy. ...Read more

My daughter is 19 received abnormal pap now has had another she has lsil HPV is there a complete cure?

Unindicated testing: It's not recommended for young women to have pap smears until the age of 21. The reason for this is exactly what is happening to your daughter. There is too high of a rate of abnormal readings that are not important to her long term health. I suggest she see a gynecologist who keeps up with the latest testing guidelines. ...Read more

I have had LSIL since 2014, getting paps every 6 months. Just recently been diagnosed with cervicitis because of spotting after sex, is this cancer?

I have had LSIL since 2014, getting paps every 6 months. Just recently been diagnosed with cervicitis because of spotting after sex, is this cancer?

Not cancer: LSIL (low grade squamous intraepithelial neoplasia on a path report) rarely goes on to cancer. Cervicitis has lots of causes, but cancer usually isn't mong them. You need testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia, if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor and make sure you are tested and perhaps treated for STDs. Your partner also needs exam and maybe treatment. But cancer is very unlikely. ...Read more

HPV + and LSIL. Scared that it might also be in mouth and anus. I am 24 years old. Should I worry or will it go away?

HPV + and LSIL. Scared that it might also be in mouth and anus. I am 24 years old. Should I worry or will it go away?

Probably go away: HPV is very common but it will go away in most people until reinfection occurs. We know more about progression of HPV changes in the cervix than in the anal or oral areas. So far, we know there is a predictable sequence of dysplasia progression to cancer over years in the cervix only. LSIL may go away by itself, but make sure you follow up. There is no standard screening yet for anal or oral. ...Read more
