An epithelial cell abnormality: squamous cell is the term for abnormal cells found on the cervix, most often detected during a pap smear. This test result does not necessarily indicate a malignant or cancerous growth, but is often a sign that cancer could form. An abnormal pap smear that yields this type of pap results will require repeat testing, generally at three month intervals.

Did your doctor schedule you for a follow-up test? Sometimes there cell abnormalities can occur if you had an infection, that's the purpose of the follow up pap smear.

Please keep us posted and remember to write down any questions that you may have for your gynecologist.
