Adequate smear: 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. ...Read more

Don't panic: 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. ...Read more

Repeat : Unless you have had a hysterectomy and your cervix was removed, then you just need a repeat pap. The sample that was obtained did not have enough cells present. ...Read more

My pap smear said normal, but what does this mean "Endocervical Component/Squamous Metaplastic Cells from Transformation Zone are Present."?

Dr. Jane van Dis

Good: That means that the pap smear tested the area between the ecto- and endo-cervix, the "transformation zone". This is the zone where abnormal cells tend to arise, so the fact that this pap smear captured cells from that area is perfect, that's just the area that doctor was hoping to analyze. Metaplastic cells are not cancer, and are benign, so this is a benign result. HOpe that helps! ...Read more

Results of pap smear is normal but endocervical and or squamous metaplastic cells. Endocervical component are present. What does this mean?

Slight abnormality: I am sure your gynecologist can help you address your concerns. Metaplastic cells are slightly abnormal but they are not cancerous. So you do not need to worry. Yet you need to continue to have regular pap smear testing as advised by your gynecologist and follow up on this abnormality which is likely to resolve with time. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
