What does endocervical and or squamous metaplastic cells are present mean?

Adequate smear

Virus
If your smear reveal endocervical and squamous cells, it means your smear is satisfactory for evaluation, adequate to rule out Human papilloma virus changes, to rule out high or low grade intraepithelial neoplasia.

If Pap smear is abnormal, atypical squamous cells of undetermined Endocervical/squamous metaplastic cells are present. + HPV is positive. I worry?

Don't panic

Pap_smear
Maybe 5-10% of women have pap smears more or less like this. You are at increased risk for cancer of the cervix, a cruel disease that was once a major killer in the US and still is in much of the world. However... If you continue to be screened as your physician instructs, your chances of dying of cervical cancer are extremely low.

Smear of my wife: Endocervical cell/metaplastic T.Z. component absent, Adequate squamous present, no evidence of SIL in the sample, What mean? Thanks

PAP smear results

PAP sounds like it was normal. The cervix is composed of an endocervix (inner portion) and ectocervix (external part protruding into vagina). The transformation zone (TZ) is the most common location for cervical cancer to form. Metaplasia is the change of one cell type to another and can increase the risk of cancer, but was absent. SIL (squamous intraepithelial lesion) can precede cervical cancer.

Dr. Bryan P. Wu answered:

After having a leep of CIN 2-3, my latest pap smear says I have Metaplastic Squamous Cells. What does that mean?

Benign process.

Metaplasia is a reactive condition that occurs even in the normal cervix. The outer cervix (ectocervix) is composed of squamous cells, while the inner cervix (endocervix) is lined by glandular cells. In an inflamed environment, such as after a LEEP, glandular cells undergo metaplasia to squamous cells, as squamous cells are hardier.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

IF dx with IDC, ER & squamous & possible metaplastic (features).. how many different types of cancer is this?

Invasive duct ca

Cancer
of the breast, the Squamous aspect is odd. The size of the lesion is important. knowing ER. PR and Her-2-neu provide prognostic as well as treatment guiding facts, a sentinel node is also informative. The Oncotype assay may be an aid, but knowing Ki67 on your biopsy may indicate proliferation index and point to need for chemotherapy. If you will not take chemo, no sense in either. Good luck.

PAP/ HPV reflex to HPV16/18 with CT/CG show endocervical ,glandular or metaplastic cells/ or parabasal cells present. Is this simply inflammation?

Not clear

Inflammation
I'm not clear on your question. If your Pap smear identified HPV types 16 and 18, then you are infected with these "high risk" subtypes of human papilloma virus. This poses a risk for cervical cancer; it doesn't mean you have cancer, but you should be evaluated and treated to prevent progression to cancer. Have you been vaccinated against HPV? It seems as if you should be. See your OB/GYN.
