Question: I would like help interpreting results from an anal pap / biopsy. Specifically, is "a glandular component is present" normal or is this a cause of concern requiring further testing?

Detailed Answer:
Hi back!

I read carefully all your cytology report and I can say as follows:

1. There is nothing to be worried since neither precancerous nor cancerous cells got detected.

2. I noticed that you have a history with HPV and this is why I suggest repeating your anal pap test after 12 months.

Hope it was helpful to you.
