a-typical cells found

Morning, Please can you help me understand exactly what the doctor means by A-typical cells were found when they tested my pap smear. I know that the basi A-typical cell is a cancer cell but that is about all I know...

What causes A-typical cells to form and what do I do now?

So far, I have been asked to be back faor another pap smear in about 6 months.

Atypical cells could be from infection or precancerous cells. This sounds mild and just needs a repeat pap smear.

Best wishes
