What does it mean to have agus abnormal pap smear results?

Requires evaluation. Newer term is agc, atypical glandular cells. It means that the cervix and uterus (endometrium or lining of the uterus) require further evaluation by a gynecologist who will further test the cells to look for cancer. Follow up is important because caught early, this can be treated. Ignored, it can lead to cancer. Definitely don't panic, but be sure to follow up for additional tests without delay.

Probably not... Often cervical cancer does not give too much warning signs untill it is too late, thus routine screening is advised to catch it early. Uterine cramping occurs (common ater pap), but not likely cervix itself. Your pap is only "slightly abnormal", which is very common as well--probably ascus (atypical squamous cell of undetermined significance). F/u with doc, but not to worry too much.. Good luck..

No. There are several types of abnormal cells but they do not mean that you have cancer. Cramping in the cervix could be due to cervicitis which can be by cramping of the uterus. You may need to have an ultrasound to check for fibroids or ovarian cysts. Pelvic pain can also be caused by pubic pain or bladder pain. Read more...

I have been having cramping in my cervix. I am a female. I have also had a slightly abnormal pap smear results. Is this cervical cancer?

It can mean precancerous or just "minor changes" that can be observed over time. The most common symptom of cervix cancer is bleeding after intercourse. Cramping does not likely mean cancer.
