Dear Teena,

Pap smear examination is a screening procedure. The most important thing for pap smears is to see whether there is any evidence of cancer or the initial findings which can later progress to cancers.

The cancer mostly originates in the transformation zone that is why the cells are important in analyzing the smears.

the report here says that your mother neither have any cancer nor any precursor lesions.

in this case, i would like to advise a repeat smear examination on yearly basis.

Dr. Ramesh
