Any time you are told you have abnormal results from a test, it can make you nervous. The same holds true if you have recently had an abnormal pap smear. Your first thought is probably cervical cancer. However, abnormal results don’t necessarily mean that is the source of your abnormal cells. You need to see an expert to find out what is going on. Our OB/GYN can help you to understand your results so you will know what to do. We’re here to help you to take care of your reproductive health.
Get to the Bottom of Your Abnormal Results
Abnormal results from a pap smear can be caused by various factors. You could have some type of infection that needs to be treated with antibiotics. Your results could be due to the human papillomavirus, otherwise known as HPV. If your abnormal cells are mild, our OB/GYN may recommend monitoring it with regular appointments. If your abnormal cells are more serious, you may need to have them removed. There are a variety of simple procedures that can target abnormal cells. Your pap smear is only the first step in finding answers. It acts as a screening. Our experts can perform a colposcopy to take a closer look at your cervix. A biopsy may be needed to test abnormal cells on your cervix. If you do come back with a cancer diagnosis, our doctor may recommend that you have your cervix removed.
