Atypia

My pap test came back showing atypis, then it was sent back to look for hp virus. Came back normal. Is this normal at my age. I will be 50 soon and been married for 32 years.

Re: Atypia

"Atypia" just means that something isn't typical. Atypia is never normal. Does it mean it is bad? Not necessarily.

I suggest you get copies of your past several pap smears. It is your right to request a copy.

Do you have another appointment with your doctor?

Re: Atypia

They have always been normal until this time. No other appointment they did send it back to see if there was any cancer cells. There was not. Just wonder if there was something I can do or this is normal?

Re: Atypia

I still recommend you getting copies of the pathology reports. Atypia is not normal. It literally means "not typical." At the age of 50 (and this is my opinion), the doctors should not be approaching atypical paps with a "wait and watch", especially since you have not had a new sexual partner in that many years. They need to figure out what is going on.

An exception, if you have an infection or had some sort of trauma to your cervix (and intercourse can cause an atypical reading) or are taking certain medicine. Those can cause an atypical reading. With that, though, they should give you more medical terms than just "atypia." Is it ASUS? AGUS? HSIL? There needs to be something else besides atypia.

I hope you are feeling ok, otherwise.
