In brief: Cervical cancer

In the presence of cervical cancer, your pap smear would be more than slightly abnormal.

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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..
