Explanation Of The Results Of Pap Smear?
Good afternoon. This is the result of my pap smear.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We understand the concern you feel.
Pap smear test is one of the screening methods (screening) to determine the presence of cervical precancerous lesions (cervix). In general, pap smear results can be grouped into 5 classes, namely:
Class 1: Normal, does not require specific therapy
Class 2: Minimal change from normal, no cells showing suspicion toward cancer; can be a sign of infection / inflammation; Usually a Pap smear or colposcopy review is recommended within 3-6 months
Class 3: Precancerous lesions or low-grade dysplasia; requires colposcopy examination
Class 4: High degree dysplasia or carcinoma in citu (non-invasive cancer); requires colposcopy and biopsy
Class 5: Invasive cancer; requires colposcopy and special therapy
On the results of the examination that you submit, there are no signs of cell malignancy or inflammation that are typical as a marker of infection. However, you still need to consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist who treats you about the results of the examination. A Pap smear is a supplementary examination whose interpretation requires the patient's clinical information, obtained through history taking and physical examination by a doctor.
