Needs further eval: I assume this means that the doctor doing the pap smear saw a lesion on the cervix during the pelvic exam. Such a lesion could be a cancer, a benign polyp, a wart, a prolapsed fibroid, or another condition. The pap smear may give some clues to the diagnosis, but most often another special exam called a colposcopy with a specific biopsy of the lesion will be needed to make sure it is not cancer.

Would like to have explanation of what is a lesion on the cervix?

Would like to have explanation of what is a lesion on the cervix?

Polyp or cyst: It's common for women to have nabothian cysts in or on the cervix. These are benign lesions that are part of the cervix's normal functioning. Sometimes women have a polyp, which is like a skin tag (sort of) on your cervix. Almost always benign as well, but need to be removed to make sure. Sometimes hpv can cause lesions to the cervix, these need to be evaluated for possible pre-cancer cells.

Await Path report: If Pap smear was done, a path report will be available in less than a week from your doctor. Long list of possibilities from benign, scar, infection and, of course, cancer. All of these can be managed well in 2014 so be patient while the report is brewing.

They took a biopsy of a lesion on my cervix. Had to put some kind of brownish glue stuff on it to stop the bleeding. How long should I hurt afterward?

I have done a pelvic ultrasound and the result were: 1cm complex lesion in the cervix. 2.7 cm simple cyst of the right ovary. What does it mean?

I have done a pelvic ultrasound and the result were: 1cm complex lesion in the cervix. 2.7 cm simple cyst of the right ovary. What does it mean?

Ultrasound findings: The lesion on your cervix could be a nabothian cyst but it really hold be investigated further. The simple cyst in your ovary is physiologic and will resolve on its own.

Surgery needed: Malignancies of the cervix must be controlled. When the Ca is in-situ as defined by biopsy, local therapy ie. Cone or cryosurgery needed. When invasive Ca present, then hysterectomy with pelvic node dissection is most effective. At times RT is needed post surgery.

What to do if I have low cell count on my cervix. (low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion). I'm 22, I do smoke. Help me?

Usually biopsy: When a pap interpretation of lsil is given, it is most often followed by a cervical biopsy and colposcopy (inspection with magnifying glass). If the look and biopsy confirm lsil and no high grade lesion, then this may be all you need. If biopsy or coloposcopy is concerning for high grade sil, then a bigger excision (cone/leep) may be needed. Talk with your doc / provider to learn what is best.

two pap smear the past two years an it was low grade lesion when I was pregnant and now. I am worried that I get cervix cancer should I be worried?

two pap smear the past two years an it was low grade lesion when I was pregnant and now. I am worried that I get cervix cancer should I be worried?

Wait to worry!: You do not have much reasons to worry. Low grade lesions often regress and go away on their own. It is only High grade (CIN) that has some risk for Cancer of the cervix and that too takes many decades to develop. So you can relax!

CT findings: None of these findings are specific. There may be more description provided by the ct that was not included in your post which may be further explaining the findings. It may be helpful to discuss these findings with the physician who ordered the ct or with the radiologist who read it.

Bartholinitis: You have an infection that needs immediate attention. See your gynacologist because your lesion may need to be opened and drained and treated with antibiotics.

What are the risks involved if I need to receive cryotherapy for the lesions on my cervix?

What are the risks involved if I need to receive cryotherapy for the lesions on my cervix?

Not many: Cryotherapy is based on the fact that frozen tissue dies. Most non-malignant problems of the cervix, due to the papilloma virus, can be treated as local issues. Removing the local tissue does not kill the virus but it eliminates the portion of the cervix which has been stimulated to grow abnormally. The frozen tissue breaks down, producing a thick discharge but complications are rare.
