No: Based on the information you provided, this result does not indicate cancer, but an inflammatory condition (coccobacilli are bacteria).

Abnormal flora: It sounds like your vaginal bacterial balance is out of whack. You may need some antibiotics, and I would follow that up with a vaginal probiotic to help build up your healthy bacteria. Your doctor should know what to prescribe.
