I'm confuse about my readings and I was to embarrassed to ask my Dr. About it.
I'm a 23yr old female and a few months ago a had a abnormal Pap smear. So I recently went and got a colposcopy
And this is what my result said:
A. Endocervix, Curettage:
Scant fragments of benign endocervical tissue.
B. Cervix, 12 o'clock, Biopsy:
Transformation zone mucosa with focal mild atypia consistent with
low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (CIN 1).
The findings in the cervical biopsy correlate with the patient's recent
ASCUS/HPV-positive Pap test (P12-85680, 10/01/2012).
The biopsy report is showing HPV and LSIL ( low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion). Guidelines state that every woman who is diagnosed with LSIL/CIN by Pap smear should be followed up by colposcopy and biopsy.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
