Needs follow-up: There are various grades of abnormalities on pap smear. Generally an abnormal smear means that some of the cells are at risk of becoming cancerous. It is important to follow-up an abnormal pap smear with repeat testing and/or additional tests, such as colposcopy and/or biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pap test: Infections such as HSV, candida or trichomona can cause abnormalities in the epithelial cells that can mimic the changes seen in precancer lesions. Also they may accompany such lesions and warrant close search. Since HPV causes the precancer lesions and is also sexually transmitted many of the risk factors for one apply to the other. ...Read more
2010 pap smear abnormal. Colpscopy showed mild hpv. 2 normal pap smears since. Did another pap smear 4 weeks ago. If it is abnormal what is treatmen?
Glandular cells: It means that there are glandular cells that appear abnormal. This type of pap result needs close follow up to include additional testing as there's a pretty high percentage of there being a precancerous or even cancerous lesion present. You may need a colposcopy and a scraping from the inside of your cervix performed. Be sure to see your doctor for follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A warning: Women with cells that have certain abnormal appearances are much more likely to develop cancer of the cervix or nearby structures. If the area with the cells can be found and removed before it turns cancerous, a life has likely been saved. Before pap smears, cancer of the cervix was a horribly common scourge of young women, as it still is in the poor nations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Requires evaluation: Newer term is agc, atypical glandular cells. It means that the cervix and uterus (endometrium or lining of the uterus) require further evaluation by a gynecologist who will further test the cells to look for cancer. Follow up is important because caught early, this can be treated. Ignored, it can lead to cancer. Definitely don't panic, but be sure to follow up for additional tests without delay. ...Read more
Abnormal....: Cells can be seen on a pap if inflammation is present. Chlamydia will cause inflammation, so yes, in a sense. There are lots of different kinds of abnormal paps so if you were told that you have an abnormal pap and need a procedure to figure out why, you should get that done. Do not assume it was from chlamydia. Also don't assume that you have chlamydia because your pap is abnormal. Good luck! ...Read more
Abnormal PAP: We do pap smears to screen for cervical cancer cells. The pap smear has helped us reduce cervical cancer to very small numbers. We think that cancer forms in stages over many years (about 10-15). The cells get progressively abnormal before they become cancerous and this is the opportunity that the pap smear gives us. Remove/kill the abnormal cells before cancer develops. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got abnormal pap test immediately following leep procedure. Did the procedure cause the problem?
No: No, but the dysplasia may not have totally resolved after the leep. It is very important that you follow up as recommended by your physician to determine if additional excisional procedures are needed to prevent the dysplasia from progressing to cervical cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was told during my pap today that I have a downward tilted cervix? What does this mean? Could a leep procedure have caused it
I had a leep one month ago for CIN 3. I went to a new dr 15 days after leep and she took a pap-it was asc-h. Can inflammation from leep be the cause?
Possible: You are very likely correct, 15 days after a leep is far too early for a follow-up pap smear. There would be extensive inflammation that would compromise interpreting the pap and the result would be uninformative. 3 to 6 months after a leep is the recommended interval to re-screen with a pap. ...Read more
Can squamous metaplasia cause an ASCUS pap result? Had leep for cin 2, 10 months ago. Just had f/u pap, came back ASCUS w/ squamous metaplasia. F/u colpo showed no lesions. Doc said 1 year pap f/u now. Likelihood I’ll get CIN grade again by then?
Pap smear went from normal to large hgsil cin3 lesion in 1 year. It causes painful heavy periods. Leep or hyst? I have no desire for more children.
Follow advice of Gyn: Your gynecologist is the one who can guide you best. I doubt if the cervix lesions have anything to do with heavy periods. So handle these as 2 separate issues for the sake of treatment. I would say hysterectomy is not indicated for treating the cin3(it can be manged with leep). Heavy menses/periods can be often manged with hormonal therapy with help from your gyncologist....Hystrecto last resort. ...Read more
What are some more extensive evaluations and followup procedures to expect after multiple abnormal paps, cone biopsies and a leep procedure. ?
You named them: The procedures used to evaluate for pre-cancer cells of cervix are: paps, hpv dna probe, cervical biopsy, leep and cold knife conization of cervix. Typically a doctor will remove affected tissue of a cin 3 biopsy until the margins are clear of abnormal cells. At 29, docs should be conservative and try to remove as little tissue as possible, so not to ^ ur risk cervical incompet and preterm birth. ...Read more

How many leeps should one have?Is it ok to have two?How do you treat chronic abnormal paps?Tired of multiple docs visits.Costing emotional&financially
If you had a leep done in 20's can you have another one when still in 20's if you want to rid the chronic abnormal pap reports and trips to docs?
If had leep& the next pap is abnormal does that mean doc didn't remove all precancerous cells?If the next 2paps are abnormal should have 2nd leep done
Depends: The repeat paps are to determine if there are abnormal cells. It is possible that not all the abnormal cells were removed with the leep, but it is more likely that the problem has recurred - that is why you must have continued follow-up. The recurrence risk for moderate and severe dysplasia is as high as 50%. ...Read more

No simple answer: Leep is one type of treatment that may be appropriate depending on the exact pap result, your hpv status, your age, and the biopsy results. The treatment can also vary somewhat with your doctor's personal preferences. Check out guidelines from the asccp (there is even an app) to get a better idea of what your options are. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal pap/hpv 16 in may 2013, colposcopy june 2013 cin1 (doctor said looked like cin2), repeat pap jan 2014 abnormal . Colposcopy or leep next?
There are options: While hpv 16 + 18 are associated with high risk for cervical cancer, most pts with these will never develop cancer. However careful f/u and evals are mandatory. If the repeat biopsy was high grade sil (cin2 or 3) then either leep or close f/u is acceptable; most gyns would opt for treatment (leep) in pts older than 30 with high grade lesions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
