Endometrial cells on Pap

I saw a general practicioner for my exam and was told to contact an OB/GYN and report that there were Endometrial cells on the pap smear.  Most of the info I have seen shows some new reporting scale for pap smears but shows the Endometrial cells for women over 40.  I am 35.  Am I close enough in age to be categorized with the over 40 or does having endometrial cells when you are under 40 mean something completely different?  I have had 1 other abnormal pap and it was when I was 19yo, complete with the colposcopy(sp) and cryo and I DO NOT want to do this again.  Since that time I've had two kids and normal pap smears.  I've also read that women over 40 may be better off having an HPV test.  Could I ask for another pap smear and for the HPV test before going through the colposcopy routine?  Is there anything else I should ask?  Thanks
