Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
These results show no sign of malignancy (cancer) from the results of the examination. However, Candida sp. in the area of your cervix. This fungus is actually normal to be found in the area of female femininity and even plays a role in the defense of the area. However, if there are many, it will cause disease. Patients will usually experience a significant amount of vaginal discharge, lumpy like broken milk. If you experience this, you should go back to your doctor for treatment. In addition, you need to keep the female area clean and dry. Use underwear that absorbs sweat and replace underwear regularly. After urinating or bathing, dry the female area with a clean tissue or towel. Avoid using cleansers or soap in the vaginal area. Although the results of your examination this time were not found malignancy, you should still carry out routine IVA or pap smears every 3 years.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
