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

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
