Endometrial cells in pap test
I am posting this on behalf of my mother-in-law.
My mother-in-law just received the results of her pap test and it says: Atypical endometrial cells suspicious for adenocarcinoma. The doctor says no endometrial cells should be present past menopause on a pap test.
She is 79 years old and has no symptoms of uterine cancer except she has had an unusual discharge for 3 years that she attributed to a pessary that she got around the time the discharge started. The discharge is not bloody.
She is scheduled for a D&C, but because of her age has to have a heart stress test first.
Is there anything besides cancer this could be?
