If your Pap test results are positive, your provider at Lenox OBGYN assesses the results carefully before recommending what should happen next.
The most likely cause of a positive Pap smear is mild inflammation. Another explanation is a condition called dysplasia, which causes minor changes to cervical cells. These problems often go away without needing any treatment, so your provider might ask you to book an appointment for another Pap smear in a few months’ time.
If there’s any indication that your positive result could be due to other causes, your provider can order additional tests, such as a colposcopy. These tests provide more information about the nature of the cell changes. Your provider keeps you informed every step of the way, and provides you with all the support you need.
