Adequate smear: If your smear reveal endocervical and squamous cells, it means your smear is satisfactory for evaluation, adequate to rule out human papilloma virus changes, to rule out high or low grade intraepithelial neoplasia. ...Read more
What does endocervical and / or squamous metaplastic cells (endocervical component ) are present mean ?
I got an Unsatisfactory smear result. It states that NO Endocervical and Squamous Metaplastic cells seen & poly.neutrophils are present. Help please.
What does Endocervical and/or squamous metaplastic cells (endocervical component) are present on a Pap smear mean?
It represents growth of squamous cells, that are normally on the exposed part of cervix growing into the cervical canal and is not a serious issue. Follow your doctor's advise about repeat PAP tests.
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
Results of pap smear is normal but endocervical and or squamous metaplastic cells. Endocervical component are present. What does this mean?
Slight abnormality: I am sure your gynecologist can help you address your concerns. Metaplastic cells are slightly abnormal but they are not cancerous. So you do not need to worry. Yet you need to continue to have regular pap smear testing as advised by your gynecologist and follow up on this abnormality which is likely to resolve with time. ...Read more
My pap smear said normal, but what does this mean "Endocervical Component/Squamous Metaplastic Cells from Transformation Zone are
Good: That means that the pap smear tested the area between the ecto- and endo-cervix, the "transformation zone". This is the zone where abnormal cells tend to arise, so the fact that this pap smear captured cells from that area is perfect, that's just the area that doctor was hoping to analyze. Metaplastic cells are not cancer, and are benign, so this is a benign result. HOpe that helps! ...Read more
If pap smear is abnormal, atypical squamous cells of undetermined endocervical/squamous metaplastic cells are present. + HPV is positive. I worry?
My test report shows intermediate squamous cells metaplastic cells and neutrophils cells what does that means?
Can you share...: ...from what body part the specimen was taken? Squamous cells are present in multiple body sites so your answer depends on the origin/location of your biopsy. ...Read more
Cervical smear test result contains superficial and intermediate squamous cells metaplastic cells & neutrophils cells in background neg for NILM?
Nilm: Means negative for intraepithelial lesions or malignancy (so negative for bad things - I.e., all good). The squamous, metaplastic and neutrophil cells are all normal cells. The idea of Pap smear is to catch cervical precancer or cancer and it doesn't see either here which is great! ...Read more
May be abnormal cell: It is a term used by Pathologists to imply that your cells are somewhat deranged and not entirely normal. Sometimes this means that such cells can deteriorate further and may become cancerous. So it requires close monitoring. ...Read more
After having a leep of CIN 2-3, my latest pap smear says I have metaplastic squamous cells. What does that mean?
Benign process.: Metaplasia is a reactive condition that occurs even in the normal cervix. The outer cervix (ectocervix) is composed of squamous cells, while the inner cervix (endocervix) is lined by glandular cells. In an inflamed environment, such as after a leep, glandular cells undergo metaplasia to squamous cells, as squamous cells are hardier. ...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
If diagnosis with idc, ER & squamous & possible metaplastic (features).. How many different types of cancer is this?
Invasive duct ca: Of the breast, the squamous aspect is odd. The size of the lesion is important. Knowing er. Pr and her-2-neu provide prognostic as well as treatment guiding facts, a sentinel node is also informative. The oncotype assay may be an aid, but knowing ki67 on your biopsy may indicate proliferation index and point to need for chemotherapy. If you will not take chemo, no sense in either. Good luck. ...Read more
If you have small fragments of an invasive malignant neoplasm with metaplastic squamous mucosa, does that indicate a terminal prognosis?
Tell us more:
No it is not terminal. But you need to tell us more about your history. Where is this tumor located? which organ site? Is the surgeon going to remove the residual tumor/cells.
Ask your surgeon to explain it all to you. ...Read more
my mother was suffering from brest cancer and her reports are
metaplastic carcinoma with spindling &squamous metaplasia grade 3 suggest me?
Rare Breast Cancer: Metaplastic breast cancer is quite rare, representing less than 1% of all breast cas. It is so-named based upon its microscopic appearance. While the tendency is for these to be "aggressive" cancers, treatment and survival are based on the cancer stage, just like any other breast cancer. Once your mother recovers from her surgery, she will be referred to a medical oncologist for rx planning. ...Read more
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
Squamous: Describes the tile like architecture of cells; however, their behavior is deranged, nuclei irregualrly enlarged and do not respect boundaries. ...Read more

Cell transformation: Metaplasia represents transformation of cells from a normal to an abnormal state. It is felt that tumors begin in a field and normal appearing cells begin transformation to the premalignant state by producing tumor proteins. The cells then move on to a more active state, metaplasia, where the cell structure begins to look abnormal, that is dysplastic and finally to early low grade malignancies ...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
