Dear customer

Thank you for the reply.

The Pap test detects changes in the cells of the cervix.An abnormal Pap smear test may indicate that you have an infection or abnormal cells called dysplasia.

Abnormal pap smear test you had on feb 3,2016 can be due to following causes:

What an abnormal result means depends on the type of cells discovered in your test.Also I would like to tell you that abnormal Pap smear results do not mean you have cancer or anything serious or dangerous.

Most of the time, the abnormal cell changes are caused by certain types of human papilloma virus or HPV. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection.

So bot***** *****ne is that as you have already had an appointment with surgeon next week,so based on the types of cells detected,treatment will be done accordingly.Surgical treatments include cryosurgery, electrocauterization, laser therapy, or cutting them out(if there are any warts).

Hope this helped

If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know how I can be of further assistance.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
