Probably normal: It's hard to give you a definitive answer without seeing it and knowing what was causing your diarrhea, but the vagina normally has bacteria present (all the Gm + and - categories) and some polymorphonuclear cells (neutrophils). The gram+ bacilli are most likely lactobacillus, the normal flora of the vagina. The epithelial cells are simply the lining of the vagina. ...Read more

But it depends on your symptoms, & what prompted the biopsy / FNA to begin with. Also, did you have a radioactive iodine exam? (Called "thyroid uptake & scan")? That tells you if the follicle is "functional" or not (making hormone). A hyperfunctional nodule is more worriso ...Read more
