How to interpret sputum test results: Few polymorphonuclear cells seen No squamous epithelial cells seen Mixed bacteria COMMENSAL FLORA?

Mgt.: There is probably no infection related to this sample, but a culture can be sent to confirm. A cytologic analysis can also be performed to rule out malignancy. ...Read more

I am 34 w/ lupus...my urinalysis had trace protein, hyaline cast 0-5, wbc 0-5, squamous epithelial cell 6-10. Doctor retesting...what does this mean?

Likely looking at: Your kidney function specifically at the amount of protein you are spilling. I also suspect that this is a contaminated specimen and the doctor wants a clean catch. ...Read more

What does rare squamous epithelial cell laden with bacteria present on cytopsin slide it's the result from my sons bronchoscopy?

What does rare squamous epithelial cell laden with bacteria present on cytopsin slide it's the result from my sons bronchoscopy?

Bronchoscopy AND analysis of specimen: Bronchoalveolar lavage, washings or brushings minimizes the contamination with upper respiratory flora and therefore increases isolation of the etiologic agent. However, the procedure is invasive. If bronchoalveolar lavage, washing or brushings fail to diagnosis the etiologic agent of pneumonia, a percutaneous transtracheal aspiration or lung biopsy may be collected. These are extremely invasive procedures, but will yield a sterile specimen, free of contamination from the normal flora of the upper respiratory tract ...Read more

My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?

My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?

"possibly a UTI": While this could represent a lower urinary tact infection, this would most likely represent a contaminated specimen (especially a voided specimen in a female).
Most urologists are cautious about "treating the urinalysis" and would follow with a urine culture and sensitivity. ...Read more

I get my lab result they said there is epithelial cell abnormality low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, colposcopy required, what I have? Dangrous

Cervical changes: You have changes to the outer cells of the cervix---a sign that you've come in contact with the hpv virus. A colposcopy allows your md to look at these cells with the aid of a microscope and possibly take a biopsy to see if they are pre-cancerous. Likely your body will fight off the virus and the cells will return to normal. Follow all your doctors recommendations though, to prevent cancer. ...Read more

FNAB RESULT SAYS: Epithelial cells on a background of fibromyxoid stroma. Wat does it mean doc?

FNAB RESULT SAYS: Epithelial cells on a background of fibromyxoid stroma. Wat does it mean doc?

This result from a: Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy suggests tissue from the breast. Epithelial cells are likely surface skin cells. Stroma essentially means a sheet of cells; fibro suggests fibrous cells or fibroblasts. Fibromyxoid SARCOMA is a serious cancer, but your biopsy suggests a slightly unusual benign tissue. Your surgeon, in consultation with the pathologist, can outline any further intervention/follow-up ...Read more

I did a urinalysis and result says pus cells 0-2/HPF. Epithelial cells +. Pls what does this mean? I'm pregnant. Thanks.

Likely nothing: During pregnancy, your urine can be contaminated with white blood (pus) cells which by itself does not indicate infection. The Epithelial cells are cells that slough off during urination and are of little consequence. ...Read more

Pap smear results. Epithelial cell abnormality, asc-us, endocervical home component present. Partially obscuring inflammation. Normal?

No: ASCUS stands for "atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance." You should follow-up with your OB/GYN for appropriate follow-up as your past history will be needed for proper management. ...Read more

What does it mean is pus 0-2, RBC 0-2, bacteria is few, epithelial cells few and mucus threads many in my urinalysis test result? Thanks!

What does it mean is pus 0-2, RBC 0-2, bacteria is few, epithelial cells few and mucus threads many in my urinalysis test result? Thanks!

Normal study: It is abnormal study. Many mucus thread means either normal (for the most part) or some irritation (even then non-specific).
Always encouraged to drink 1-3l water per day. Have a good one. ...Read more

I have urinalysis test results with cloudy urine, mucus present, wbc >30 WBC Esterase +3 epithelial cells non renal >10 I don’t have any UTI symptom?

I have urinalysis test results with cloudy urine, mucus present, wbc >30 WBC Esterase +3 epithelial cells non renal >10 I don’t have any UTI symptom?

Why was UA done?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, a person can have urinary infection and not have symptoms. Please discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the test.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Test reads squamous epithelial cells analysis is rare. Bacteria is also rare. Not sure what that means?

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

Pap smear: Is this the result of your pap smear? if yes, then it means moderate or severe cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or carcinoma in situ, which in some cases could lead to cervical cancer. you need Colposcopy and possible biopsy.
Talk to your Gynecologist regarding a treatment plan. ...Read more

I had a urine test. It showed the urine was cloudy & the squamous epithelial cell count was abnormal (>50/lpf abnormal) What could this mean?

Contamination: When there are more than 5 to 10 squamous epithelium cells per high-powered field that means a urine sample was contaminated with skin cells. Any type of culture of the urine will demonstrate the presence of skin bacteria. ...Read more

Can you explain my papresults. Endocervical/transformation zone component present, EPITHELIAL CELL ABNORMALITY, Low Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion?

A common pap result.: This is a common pap smear result and represents the first stage of what Pathologist classify as not completely normal cervical epithelial cells acquired from the junction of the outer cervix and the inner cervix. (transformation zone). The pap smear is mode up of "dead" cells and sometimes they look like this report. Your MD may want to repeat this pap in a few months so check with them. ...Read more

I had a Pap smear and it stated possible low grade squamous epithelial lesion and mild changes to inner endocervical cells. Should I be concerned?

I had a Pap smear and it stated possible low grade squamous epithelial lesion and mild changes to inner endocervical cells. Should I be concerned?

Abnormal pap: You may have had HPV testing done along with the Pap itself. If negative, then the risk of cancer is low, and you can repeat the Pap in a year. If you didn't have HPV testing, or if the HPV test was positive, you need more testing. Go see a GYN. Overall, though, the risk is still low, and many abnormalities resolve on their own. Bottom line, don't worry and follow up as your doc recommends. ...Read more

SPUTUM Gram Stain1+ Squamous Epithelial Cells 2+ Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes 2+ Mixed Gram Positive Organisms 2+ Normal Flora Is this normal.?

Non diagnostic: The squamous epithelium means the sputum came from mouth not lungs (no squamous in lungs/bronchi) but leukocytes means infection. So, this sputum has infection but can't use it to diagnose due to contamination from mouth normal saliva that has usual mouth bacteria (called normal flora). Actinomycosis is being appropriately treated with penicillin. Discuss with your doc to see if need sputum resent ...Read more
