: Could you explain to me what exactly is atypical cells? I did not get a chance to discuss this with my doctore. He wants to examine me again in 3 months due to getting this report back.
Atypical cells are abnormal cells on the cervix. They have the potential to become cancerous. You will need to go see your gyno every three monthd for 1 year then every six months for a second year. If nothing changes (the cells stay the same or go away) then you are done. If they change and form into cancerous cells, a hysterectomy will have to be done. I am now on my second year of every 3 month check-ups. It can go on for quite some time. You really need to speak w/your gyno about your options and which is best for you.
