What do abnormal squamous cells in urinalysis mean?

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

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more

Hi! I recently had a urinalysis that found leukocytes, proteins, ubg as well as atypical squamous cells. Should I follow up with a doctor?

Hi! I recently had a urinalysis that found leukocytes, proteins, ubg as well as atypical squamous cells. Should I follow up with a doctor?

Yes: Why was urinalysis done? Who ordered it? 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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests.
Wish you 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

If the squamous cells are many in urinalysis is that dangerous?

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

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

From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high (ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.

From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high (ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.

See below: 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, squamous cells suggest contamination of urine with vaginal material and a fresh specimen should be examined. Cloudy urine that is odorous suggests an infection. Please consult your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

What could these mean in a urinalysis (doc says it's not a UTI despite symptoms) leukocyte: pos, bacteria: +1, squamous epithelial: +1 LPK, mucus: +1?

Contamination: The squamous epithelial cells indicate that some of your vaginal secretions got into the urine. These contain leukocytes so all bets are off. Very abundant leukocytes with symptoms might still support a urinary tract infection. ...Read more

My urine analysis says the urine is clear but the cytology report says it's cloudy. I have only squamous and urothelial cells present. Why is that?

Urinalysis: Urinalysis does not detect squamous cells or urinary sediment. "Cloudy" urine is usually due to heavy urinary sediment if infection has been ruled out. This may be a result of incomplete voiding, inadequate fluid ingestion or medications precipitating out in your urine. ...Read more

Urinalysis showed atypical cells in urine. No symptoms, only back pain. What does that mean? Could that be cancer?

At your age: I would recommend an ultrasound of the kidneys asap followed by contrast ct scan for any abnormalities. Ultrasound is quick, non-invasive and without risk combined with a significant amount of information potential. Atypical cells on urinalysis require radiographic investigation. ...Read more

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
