Our expert says:
It is possible that atypical cells have been noticed. These cells could be a precursor for cancer. A routine papsmear is done to assess if the abnormal cells were only a once-off occurence. If it is still present after three months, your doctor will consider doing a biopsy of the cervix.
The risk for cancer is very low and that is the reason why the papsmear will only be repeated in 3 months time.
Please do not be alarmed and there is nothing that you should or should not do.
