    Abnormal pap result ...

    Hello,

    Due to a very late period + stomach bloating, I went to my obgyn and my pap came back abnormal. And, my obgyn felt a lump near my uterus. Is cancer probable?

    Abnormal pap results are oftentimes nothing serious. A number of relatively harmless things can cause an abnormal result. Typically, another one is done in 6 months or so. What did your doctor tell you?

    As far as the lump near your uterus, what did your doctor say? Fibroids are common benign uterine growths that generally don't need treatment if they aren't bothersome.

    Thanks. I literally just got back from my second follow-up, and my doctor now says the cells look normal. There is still no explanation however as to why my period is so late. This has surely never happened before. Thank you for the information.

    Just a couple of things people don't realize can result in an abnormal pap: bubble bath and sex within 24 before the swab. Also most resolve on their own which is likely what happened with you. Continuing good health to you.
