In brief: Pre cancerous cells

High grade cells are precancerous cells of the cervix.
This is not cancer and is very treatable. The purpose of having a pap smear is to find these cell abnormalities before they progress to cancer.

In brief: Precancerous cells

High grade cells is one way of describing the appearance of the cells from the surface of the cervix when we do a pap smear.
These are considered precancerous until proven otherwise. Patients are usually advised to undergo a procedure called a colposcopy to evaluate the true findings and if high grade cells persist then a procedure is done to remove them.

In brief: Possible dysplasia

This could represent a problem with abnormal cells from a pap smear.
Please check with your ob/gyn to possibly have a more diagnostic test called a colposcopy.

In brief: Abnormal pap

High grade cells in cervix come from a high risk hpv related affliction of the cervical cells .
This needs investigation of an urgent nature .One would proceed to colposcopy with directed biopsy of abnormal lesions noted.If these biopsies do not verify the type of cells in the pap then one needs to proceed to the next step of leep biopsy or "cone"biopsy.

In brief: Abnormal CIN cells

Cin(cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia) is a condition of abnormal cells from the cervix @ pap testing.
Cin(sin) isn't what caused it it's just what we describe as gradations of abnormal cells that are classified i, ii, or iii and can be associated with the hpv(human papilloma virus). High grade cells usually are found at colposcopic biopsy and requires different asssesment than low grade cin.
