Based on the results of the pap smear examination you submit above, it was stated that:
There is a condition of infection / inflammation in the cervical area or the cervix, which has been going on for a long time and there are no signs of malignant cells or malignancy in the cervical area.
Pap smear is a type of examination that finds out early on the potential for changes in cells in the cervix to become malignant. This examination can also see if there is an infection or inflammation in the area.
Pap smears are recommended for women who are 21 years of age or older, or women who are already sexually active. The Pap smear aims to find out early on the presence of cervical cancer which is one of the most common causes of cancer death in women. By knowing in advance there will be cells that have the potential to become malignant, then the action or treatment will be carried out earlier and the mortality rate can be further reduced.
Therefore, this pap smear is recommended to be carried out routinely every 3 years, or if any complaints are found.
Thus, hopefully this explanation can help you.
