Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out.

Squamous metaplasia refers to the benign non-cancerous change (metaplasia) of surfacing lining cells to a squamous morphology. In regard to the cervix, squamous metaplasia can sometimes be found in the endocervix. Your doctor is the one you need to speak to about these test results.

Keep us updated.
