I have been panicking for weeks. Can not exclude HSIL mean I have HPV ?

My pap smear came back saying. Atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude HSIL Now I had gone to a free clinic to have this pap smear done. The nurse told me that I have HPV. (no specific HPV test was run) I have been panicking for weeks. I go on Tuesday to a gynecologist for a repeat pap and I am scared. Does the finding of Atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude HSIL mean I have HPV ?

welcome to HCM.Hpv is the commonest genital infection aquired by sexual intercourse.HPV can cause normal cells on infected skin to turn abnormal.It takes years after HPV infection to develop cervical cancer.So the early detected hpv the better.there is no cure as the virus often clears itself.If it doesnt and stays as genital warts you have to treat them.n your safeside its better to limit sexual partners,safe sex methods and regularly having Pap smears done.take care.
