Welcome to Justanswer website.
Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today.
Well, Pap smear test examines cells from the cervix
, located at the top of the vagina
Normal vaginal discharge
contains cells that are shed from the cervix and uterus
Yes, pap smear test would always check for cervical erosion.
In this test, doctor would collect some of the cells from the neck of the womb onto the stick. When these cells are examined, if they are womb cells instead of cervical cells, then this is called an erosion.
This can be treated with a local anaesthetic and cautery.
I would also make it clear that Cervical erosion is mostly an incidental finding on routine gynecological examination in women. Commonly it is present in asymptomatic female.
Pap smear is usually normal, but may show signs of infection or some abnormal cells. Therefore Pap smear usually helps to decide if treatment is needed or not. Cone biopsy is done if indicated.
As such, Mostly cervical erosion is present in women who do not have any symptoms and so no specific treatment is advised.
