3-6/2016- ordered transabdominal and transvaginal US. Results:uterus normal size, antereverted in position, endometrial thickness 0.2 and echogenicity w/o mass.
Summery: three fibroids in a normal size uterus largest 0.9 cm. No other abnormalities of pelvis detected.
4- gynecologist Office called with report a said to schedule a annual in May 2017.
5- PCP wasn't satisfied with gynie waiting one yr and wanted another PAP!! That she wanted to do
6- while doing pap she sees cervical dysphasia (top 1/4 ) and mucoid discharge !!

this is Dr. David

there is no such thing as cervical dysphagia

there is cervical dysplasia which is a precancerous condition in which abnormal cell growth occurs on the surface lining of the cervix or endocervical canal.

this is only seen on pap smear looking at cells taken off of the cervix after a pap smear.

I would trust your gyn doctor

if you are not agreeing with your pcp, you may have to find a new primary care doctor

let me know if you have other questions.
