Parakeratotic Squamous Cells
Abnormal cells: Squamous cells line the junction on the cervix between the vaginal cells and the endometrial canal cells; pap smear screen for abnormal appearances in these cells as they indicate precursors to cervical cancer. Atypical means abnormal, so atypical squamous cells mean that the cells on the cervix are abnormal, but mildly abnormal, and not abnormal enough to classify as dysplasia. ...Read more

Several things: Having an abnormal urilnalysis can result from several factors. Things such as infection, bladder stones, catheterization (especially prolonged urinary catheterization), and malignancy can be possible causes. If this was detected, a urological evaluation should be sought to include a cystoscopy (placement of a telescope into the bladder to visualize the bladder). ...Read more

Dirty catch: Squamous cells do not exist inside the urinary tract, they are coming from your skin cells. It means that you did not perform a "clean catch" in which you wipe your vulva with a cleansing wipe, then urinate into the toilet slightly before catching the urine into the cup. It invalidates the results of the test if there are a lot of squamous epithelial cells in the urine. ...Read more

What does endocervical and / or squamous metaplastic cells (endocervical component) are present mean?
Is a high grade squamous lesion cancer. I also have abnormal squamous cells. I'm waiting to get a colpos copy.?
More specific: In order to better anterior question, more information is needed. Perhaps you could approach one of the physicians in the personal message area. Be sure to describe exactly where the high-grade squamous lesion is located. It is on the skin and extremity, oriented near the anus? Are you getting a colonoscopy or a colposcopy? Hope this helps. ...Read more

Test reads squamous epithelial cells analysis is rare. Bacteria is also rare. Not sure what that means?
No worries...: These results (likely for urinalysis) are unremarkable. The term "rare" in this context means "very few in number." In other words, on microscope exam of the urine sample, there were very few bacteria (meaning not worrisome) and you had some squamous cells (very common, skin cells from skin outside of urethra [eg from penis or from your hand in close contact]). ...Read more

Smear of my wife: endocervical cell/metaplastic t.Z. Component absent, adequate squamous present, no evidence of sil in the sample, what mean? Thanks
PAP smear results: Pap sounds like it was normal. The cervix is composed of an endocervix (inner portion) and ectocervix (external part protruding into vagina). The transformation zone (tz) is the most common location for cervical cancer to form. Metaplasia is the change of one cell type to another and can increase the risk of cancer, but was absent. Sil (squamous intraepithelial lesion) can precede cervical cancer. ...Read more
