Yearly paps   first abnormal pap - ascus - age 40.  What is best follow up?   Hpv test not done and not offered.   How serious is this ascus result ?

ASCUS: Ascus is not usually serious. It is just a red flag that your physician needs to do a repeat follow up test sooner than usual. It is also unusual, now a days, to not offer the hpv hybrid test with the pap smear. You should clarify with your physician why this vital test was not offered to you. ...Read more

Pap smear results came back as inflamed ascus- dr says it's inflamed normal cells. Hpv is negative. Had this happen again in 2012. What does it mean?

Pap smear results came back as inflamed ascus- dr says it's inflamed normal cells. Hpv is negative. Had this happen again in 2012. What does it mean?

Probably normal: A SCUS stands for atypical squamous cells of uncertain significance. That means the cells look funny. If the HPV is negative and it remains negative this is just an outlier under the microscope. If the HPV is positive you will need a biopsy. If The atypia persist you also will get a biopsy even if the HPV is negative. So at this point the HPV test is the most important predictor of whether you havso at this point the HPV test is the most important predictor of whether you have human papilloma virus infection ...Read more

Reflex testing: When most Obgyn’s order a pap smear we order a HPV test to be done if the result is abnormal. Some order the HPV test on all pap smears if the woman is over 30 years old. It sounds like you are reading the pap order form and not the pap results. Check with your doctor to verify if this is the case. ...Read more

Get an HPV test: I always do hpv testing on ascus paps. Because if it's hpv positive i would do a colposcopy right away. The chance of finding cancer in a ascus hpv (+) pap is less than 1%. But if it's hpv negative, you are off the hook, and i wouldn't repeat the pap for a year. ...Read more

Hi, I have papanicolau test result like this: ascus with undefinied position...The doctor says thats HPV :( it made colposcopy..It is true?

Hi, I have papanicolau test result like this: ascus with undefinied position...The doctor says thats HPV :( it made colposcopy..It is true?

Ascus means unclear: The acronym ascus indicates that the pathologist is unsure whether there is dysplasia (or hpv) or not. It basically means "i don't know, follow up and try again." patients often have additional genetic testing for hpv (in addition to the pap smear) and if that is positive, that's reasonably good evidence of hpv infection. ...Read more

Why might a doctor refuse to test for HPV when biopsying a cervix with ascus results?

HPV: If you are getting a biopsy done, there is no benefit in testing for hpv. The benefit in testing for hpv is deciding whether or not to do a colposcopy and biopsies. ...Read more

My sperm sample WBCS+ prescribed antibiotics. Wife's PAP Ascus, HPV+ Wife says this evidences infidelity. How do I explain these test results?

HPV: Any person who claims they know when or how someone got HPV is not telling the truth or is completely misinformed. Most humans get exposed to HPV (96% by age 26) in their youth. HPV migrates and one can infect themselves from hands or other parts of their body. HPV is not in any way specifically an STD nor can ANYONE, including the doctor, predict when or from whom one acquired HPV. ...Read more

Wife had her 1st ascus pap result. The doctor then did an HPV dna/rna test & no results provided. Should she be concerned and request the results?

Wife had her 1st ascus pap result. The doctor then did an HPV dna/rna test & no results provided.  Should she be concerned and request the results?

HPV DNA Testing: Yes. Simple as it sounds, please have your wife contact the physician who ran the test and request results. But, please be aware that these results often take a bit longer to be reported. And, once in a great while the testing medium is unable to isolate enough cells to do the test with any kind of accuracy and the test then needs to be repeated. But, this test is a very good improvement! ...Read more

Ascus pap result, HPV 18 positive. Had colposcopy, 3 spots were biopsied and ecc done. How likely is this to come back as cancer?

Possible precancer: HPV18 is one of the high risk HPV subtypes and coupled with a PAP smear dx of ASCUS, it is likely that the biopsy will show squamous intraepithelial lesion or dysplasia which means a precancerous lesion, either low or high grade. Biopsy an follow up should ensure that it may never become invasive cancer. ...Read more
