Abnormal pap smear result, chart online says A in "Flag" category w/ HSIL. With title "Pap IG, CT-Ng, rfx HPV ASCU what does this mean? Do I have HPV?

Abnormal pap smear result, chart online says A in "Flag" category w/ HSIL. With title "Pap IG, CT-Ng, rfx HPV ASCU what does this mean? Do I have HPV?

Follow up on this!: It is not entirely clear what this line means but let me break it down for you a bit. HSIL stands for high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. This is one step before cervical cancer and if that's what the pap said, you need a colposcopy and cervical biopsy. CT usually means chlamydia was negative. rfx HPV means reflex HPV in the event that the pap is ASCUS. HPV is positive for most HSIL. ...Read more

Recently found bill for gf with tests: trachomatis, neisseria, trichomonas, pathologist review, surepath pap. I think she's cheatin.  R these routine?

Trust but clarify: These are routine tests. If you are paying out of pocket, it comes as a shock! ask your doctor to inform you about the reasons for these tests. If you know what the tests are for, you can decline what you think are not necessary. This will help you develop a trusting relationship with your doctor. ...Read more

Not necessarily: That is why you doctor wants to do the biopsy. It can be do to a multitude of reasons. It could be from hormones, it could be a polyp, it could be pre-cancer (hyperplasia), and of course it could be cancer. Do the biopsy. It is very important. ...Read more

DR said inflammation on EGD was "over read" by pathologist as Barrett's- on 40mg nexium (esomeprazole) 2x day, chance of esophageal cancer? 31 yo, pics attached

DR said inflammation on EGD was "over read" by pathologist as Barrett's- on 40mg nexium (esomeprazole) 2x day, chance of esophageal cancer? 31 yo, pics attached

Strange: Why did the doctor order an EGD? Did he bother to take a history and do a physical exam first? Why did you go to the doctor? Do you have difficulty swallowing or dyspepsia? Why are you taking Nexium (esomeprazole)? I have NEVER heard of 31 y.o. with Barrett's or esophageal cancer. Doctor's don't get paid to think. They get paid to DO THINGS to patients, such as EGD's. You should ask the doctor some questions. ...Read more

LEEP in Apr. '14, clean margins. Jul. '14 - high grade dysplasia recurs, plus atypical glandular cells. Doc advises hysterectomy. Is this overkill?

LEEP in Apr. '14, clean margins. Jul. '14 - high grade dysplasia recurs, plus atypical glandular cells.  Doc advises hysterectomy.  Is this overkill?

NO: If truly recurrent dysplasia and no fertility desired, then this is completely a very good option and will give the best result as far as future prognosis. Consider whether removal of the ovaries too may be in your best interest at 46 yo. Discuss with your GYN. Consider a laparoscopic surgery as this allows return to normal faster - but only by really qualified surgeons - not every GYN knows well. ...Read more

U/s 17mm uterus, colpscopy & bx came back with hsil &stage 0 bx shows 3&12 o'clock bx? 3 o'clock with mixed mucous what does all mean dr want cone, y?

HGSIL: HGSIL can turn to cancer one of these days. You need treatment. If there is no glandular involvement, laser or freezing the cervix will treat it. If there is glandular involvement then LEEP or cone biopsy will diagnose and treat. Remeber, HPV can cause damage later after treatment so continue seeing your doctor regularly. 17mm lining is normal especially premenstrual. ...Read more

Mother is 65, had pericardiocentesis  500ML. F/U showed some fluid. Dr says perm drain by subxiphoid method. Danger? Risks? How? is proced.life threat

Pericardial effusion: When fluid builds up in the sac around the heart it is called pericardial effusion. Causes include an inflammatory illness, an auto-immune illness, an infection, a tumor, or other reasons. The right treatment would depend on the diagnosis, & may include medicine, drainage (pericardiocentesis), or surgery to remove part of the sac. While this is usually a low risk surgery, it's still surgery. ...Read more
