Could truth go undetected on one pap and then be detected on another?

I have had a pap smear every year for three years. On my recent pap trich was detected. Could it have been there all three years but just now detectable?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

I think it's unlikely it would not be detected for that long. Ask your doctor what his opinion is on this.
