Probably not: This is a common finding on a pap smear and is slightly abnormal. It is not likely to be anything dangerous. However, the only way to be sure is to be evaluated by your doctor. Most times an exam called a colposcopy is recommended in the office. Hope this helps. ...Read more

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

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

Smear of my wife: endocervical cell/metaplastic t.Z. Component absent, adequate squamous present, no evidence of sil in the sample, what mean? Thanks

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. ...Read more

I had a Pap smear and it stated possible low grade squamous epithelial lesion and mild changes to inner endocervical cells. Should I be concerned?

Abnormal pap: You may have had HPV testing done along with the Pap itself. If negative, then the risk of cancer is low, and you can repeat the Pap in a year. If you didn't have HPV testing, or if the HPV test was positive, you need more testing. Go see a GYN. Overall, though, the risk is still low, and many abnormalities resolve on their own. Bottom line, don't worry and follow up as your doc recommends. ...Read more

Pap result: mild inflam. Background, superficial & intermed. Squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. Paps. Colposcopy needed?

No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read more

After having a leep of CIN 2-3, my latest pap smear says I have metaplastic squamous cells. What does that mean?

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. ...Read more

Nilm: Means negative for intraepithelial lesions or malignancy (so negative for bad things - I.e., all good). The squamous, metaplastic and neutrophil cells are all normal cells. The idea of Pap smear is to catch cervical precancer or cancer and it doesn't see either here which is great! ...Read more
