Question: test results of pap test


 heath036 - Sun Oct 28, 2007 1:59 pm

i got my results from my pap test and they were normal except i had a bacterial infection that they said would go away on it's own. then they called back a few weeks later and said i had genital warts. How it that possible?

User avatar Hello -

I suspect what happened was that the initial interpretation of the results had been read as a bacterial infection (though I can't imagine why anyone would tell you to ignore it and it would go away on its own); the later call regarding genital warts was probably due to a second look by someone else who recognized the problem and wanted to let you know. Hopefully this has resolved now and/or been treated appropriately.

Colposcopy may be able to determine what, if anything, is going on. I'm hoping that by now this has all been clarified. Good luck to you, and please do follow up with us.
