Wright Smear Of Lesion Shows Neutrophils (Overview)

Wright's stain is a histologic stain that facilitates the differentiation of blood cell types. It is used primarily to stain peripheral blood smears and bone marrow aspirates which are examined under a light microscope. In cytogenetics it is used to stain chromosomes to facilitate diagnosis of syndromes and diseases. It is named for james homer wright, who devised the stain.

My pap smear and my results were  endocervical/transformation zone component atypical squamous cells of  undetermined significance?

Follow up needed: You should discuss follow up with your doctor. Typically a colposcopy is recommended to look closer at your cervix. ...Read more

Dear Sir FNAC result "Smear consists of fibrofatty tissue with few lymphocytes and polymorphs suggestive of inflammed lipomatous lesion"?

Dear Sir
 FNAC  result  "Smear consists of fibrofatty tissue with few lymphocytes and polymorphs suggestive of inflammed lipomatous lesion"?

May need core biopsy: FNAC is often inadequate to make a proper diagnosis, especially if you suspect cancer. if you have a tumor, you should go and see a good surgeon who deals with cancer. He may do a core biopsy which gives more tissue than a FNAC. I am afraad you will need a repeat biopsy but seek a second opinion for finding out what you have wrong ...Read more

My 65 year mothers pap smear report says squamous epithellial cells of mainly intermediate and parabasal type. Moderate anisonucleosis and dysplasia?

My 65 year mothers pap smear report says squamous epithellial cells of mainly intermediate and parabasal type. Moderate anisonucleosis and dysplasia?

The key is dysplasia: She will need a colposcopy and biopsy of the cervix and ecc and may need a leep or cervical cone or possible hysterectomy depending on how bad the dysplasia is or if she has worse ( hopefully not) cancer in situ. ...Read more

Pap was not normal Endocervical/transformation zone component present. Atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance asc-us What is this cancer?

Not likely: It's a fairly common finding on Pap smear. It would rarely indicate cancer. Sometimes it means precancerous changes, which are not serious. Needs further evaluation. ...Read more

My d&c histopathological report showed cyto glandular hyperplasia and no evidence of malignancy. What does that mean?

My d&c histopathological report showed cyto glandular hyperplasia and no evidence of malignancy. What does that mean?

Benign: Many women especially your age and a little older have some cystic glandular hyperplasia. The key is that it is benign and you are not really at a greater risk for cancer. Your gynecologist can tell you if there is anything else you need to do. Be thankful and stay proactive with regard to your health. ...Read more

FNAC right parotid. Microscopy shows that smears are haemorrhagic and show fixation artifacts.Help.

FNAC right parotid. Microscopy shows that smears are haemorrhagic and show fixation artifacts.Help.

Nothing about the: information you provide is alarming. The fine needle aspiration has not revealed anything helpful and is not diagnostic. Hemorrhage/bleeding is not unusual; it may even have been caused by the insertion of the needle. Fixation artifact simply means there is disruption of the tissue due to fixation/preparing the material for the microscope. Probably needs repeating...discuss with Doc. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Is this normal with retained placental parts. "two biopsy samples showed placental site nodules with intermed. Trophoblastic cells showing sig atypia"?

Is this normal with retained placental parts. "two biopsy samples showed placental site nodules with intermed. Trophoblastic cells showing sig atypia"?

Need specialist: This is a very concerning and confusing pathology report. It sounds like a problem called 'gestational trophoblastic disease' is a possibility and you need referral to a gynecologic oncologist. While this starts as a local problem in the uterus, if not addressed and treated, it can turn into cancer. Please get expert help! ...Read more

Fna of cervical node path report:"no morphologic abnormality but lymphoproliferative process of lymphocytes couldn't be excluded."what does this mean?

Fna of cervical node path report:"no morphologic abnormality but lymphoproliferative process of lymphocytes couldn't be excluded."what does this mean?

Don't worry!: This means your lymph node has a lot of normal lymphocytes, which are white blood cells that fight viruses and regulate your immune system. Lymph nodes are packed with them. I notice you have a sore throat. You likely have a virus, and your lymph node is doing what it's supposed to... Proliferating lymphocytes! ...Read more

My pap smear said normal, but what does this mean "Endocervical Component/Squamous Metaplastic Cells from Transformation Zone are Present."?

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

Pap smear results say normal/negative for interepithelial lesions or malignancy but also says reactive epithelial cell changes. What does that mean?

Nothing serious: The aim of pap test is to check for Cancer cells or pre-cancers. you have neither of these conditions. reactive is a non specific word saying the cells are not perfect, yet the reactive chnages are not of any consequence ...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

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

Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?

Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?

Nothing serious yet: This report suggests slightly abnormal changes (atypia & increased cell proliferation) which can be a reaction to irritation but there is no definitive evidence of precancerous change (VIN). In short there is nothing to worry about right now unless you are concerned and you'd like a second opinion ...Read more
