Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive.  Endocervical margins clear.  Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?

At least PAP, may: Require bone biopsy later. From the information you provided, you have residual abnormal cells in the cervix and at a minimum you need to monitor the process by pap. Three months is not likely to cause irreversible changes for the worse and you can wait to see the pap results to decide, in consultation with your doctor, if cone biopsy is needed. ...Read more

Had cervical smear result HSIL.follow up biopsy CIN3 with microinvasion.had hysterectomy. Histology chronic non specific cervicitis with squamous meta?

Pathology interpreta: Was a cervical conization, endocervical curettage or endometrial biopsy ever performed? On the final hysterectomy pathology, no CIN or frank cervical cancer was found?

Get another pathologist to re-review the slides ...Read more

Endometrial biopsy 3/3/15 results - tubal metaplasia and scant sample, so d&c hysteropscopy 04/14/15 results show no tubal metaplasia can it reverse?

Insignificant find: Tubal metaplasia is an insignificant finding in endometrial tissue. Often it is not even mentioned because it is common. It has no association with hyperplasia or cancer at all. It is an incidental finding that is usually present only focally. Your MD undoubtedly repeated the biopsy because the initial biopsy was scant and s/he wanted a better sample, NOT to see if there is more metaplasia. ...Read more

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Shape/Size Mostly: CT shows nodal shape, size and if it is has fat (a good thing). Most nodes are oval or kidney shaped. If they are round and big, they may be involved in something like lymphoma. Sometimes infection can do this too, so it is not a slam dunk. I'm afraid you'll just have to wait it out for the path report as CT is non specific. MR with fancy contrast is better but still not as good as Bx. ...Read more
