Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation. Atypical endocervical cells seen. On my pap smear result. Am I at risk to cervical cancer?
HPV test?: Unfortunately, anyone who has had genital contact is at risk for cervical cancer because the human papilloma virus is so widespread.

If it is positive, then you do have a small risk for dysplasia or precancer, but if it is negative, you have almost no risk. If your hpv test is (+), you will need follow up. ...Read more
