What Are Pap Smear Callbacks And How Are They Triggered
Abnormal or insuff?: The most common reason for a patient to be called back is that the pap is abnormal or atypical.

What causes angiokeratomas on vulva? Dr says these are rare for women, so what caused me to develop them and how to treat? Are they cancerous?
They just happen: Don't worry about fabry's if you don't have themelsewhere. I suspect there's a genetic component.

Why isn't HPV included in a routine STD test or pap? So many people have it and think they are STD free because they are ignorant about it.
It usually is: It is the recommendation that it is done routinely but it is an expensive test with the technology not available everywhere. Accommodations must be made for docs not able to comply. You must remember, there are still people doing smears on a slide. For those docs that can get it done but don't, we must take the time to update our education if we are going to provide the service. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it common to protect and be paranoid of there spouse about bad things they done to them they are doing or have done to borderline personality dis?
Yes: The woman with ptsd and borderline personality disorder will likely be protective of her husband. She may shield the outside world from what is going on within the household. This is very similar to the stockholm syndrome. Please read about that on www.Wikipedia.Org. It sounds like you are a victim of abuse and your husband is the perpetrator if I am reading your question correctly. Please work on that in therapy. You do not have to put up with bullying behavior within a marriage.One book that i often recommend to women in your situation which may or may not apply is "the sociopath next door".Another book is called a dance with the devil.

Why are they still doing prostate biopsy's when they are not 100% accurate and there are complications?
Good: Question for an urologist, but my guess is that many will have benign prostate hypertrophy and when prostate on palpating is not smooth and irregular, with an equivocal psa level, the biopsy of a suspicious area may pick up malignant cells before they may spread. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm a dentist and I use latex gloves all the time...Are they dangerous snd what are there health hazards do they cause uterine cysts?
Several: A smear / brush shouldn't hurt. A little local anesthetic is plenty for an incisional biopsy. A conization for attempted cure of preinvasive cancer is more but won't be nearly as annoying as a wisdom tooth and gives a strong likelihood of a cancer cure. Good luck, and i'm pleased that you are taking a proactive approach to your health. ...Read more
