    abnormal pap questions

    Ok..some questions. About a year ago, I had my first abnormal pap. Did the colposcopy and biopsy, then leep. 4 months later, had another colposopy. The Dr. didn't see anything so he just did an ECC. Well, that came back abnormal. Soooo, they did a repeat pap last week and that came back abnormal. What in the world is going on? Should I be worried?

    Re: Atypical Glandular cells - I don't want LEEP!

    You must ask your doctor what is going on, and take a copy of your lab reports when you go in, but from your description it seems that the problem is in the endocervix because the ECC came up positive. If he didn't see anything during colpo, it means there is no dysplasia on the face of the cervix (the cervix looks like a clock with a dot in the middle, and the dot is the beginning of the endocervical canal). You might even consider a second opinion from a more aggressive physician because most gyns don't like to mess with endocervical dysplasia (in the canal)--it's a lot harder to tell what's going on there, as opposed to ectocervical dysplasia (on the outside/face).

    Re: abnormal pap questions

    Have you received a copy of your pathology reports? If not, ask for them. Then ask the doctor to explain the information you don't understand. And I agree with brieaukirsch, you might seek a second opinion.

    Re: abnormal pap questions

    15 yrs ago I had my pap come back abnormal, went had biopsy, then had laser surgery on my cervix. I think you have to have a pap every 3 months for 9 months after surgery. I didn't make it past the 2nd pap. I had to go through the biopsy, & then laser surgery again. No more abnormal paps since.
