Brief Answer:
Pap anal biopsy is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

In an anal pap biopsy an ' anal glandular component is present' is considered normal finding.
Since your biopsy doesn't show HPV present or dysplasia present this result is considered normal.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
