Atypical Pap Smear

After any atypical pap smear, another pap smear and colposcopy are used to make a proper diagnosis; it may be ASCUS, which is rather mild, or cervical dysplasia, which can lead to dangerous changes. Both genetic makeup and lifestyle may contribute to abnormal test results. But, elements that weaken the immune system are also a factor. Recent research suggests that people lacking a specific protein are more susceptible to HPV infection than are others, similar to getting a cold. After any atypical pap smear, another pap smear and colposcopy are used to make a proper diagnosis; it may be ASCUS, which is rather mild, or cervical dysplasia, which can lead to dangerous changes.

Pap Smear, ASCUS

Thus, abnormal cells will be seen in normal cytology screening procedures. If the immune systemís ability is blocked at the molecular level to respond to the presence of bacterial and viral diseases, some changes in cell maturation may appear. After any atypical pap smear, another pap smear and colposcopy are used to make a proper diagnosis; it may be ASCUS, which is rather mild, or cervical dysplasia, which can lead to dangerous changes.
