Psychological impact, support and information needs for women with an abnormal Pap smear: comparative results of a questionnaire in three European countries

The product's success in reducing anxiety in women receiving abnormal Pap tests is not clear. We investigated new ways of reporting Pap results to measure women's reactions and identify the sources of data used later. Methods Anonymous Pap smear test was conducted in 1475 women in France, Spain, and Portugal who had abnormal Pap smear findings in the 12 months leading to the questionnaire completion. Result in France and Portugal Pap test results were mainly announced by phone to Spanish women, although physician letters were common in France and Portugal. Impact in Spanish women was greater than that of the French or Portuguese. Conclusions women expressed a strong desire for more information regarding cervical cancer and other HPV-related disorders, as well as that their physician play a significant role in its manufacture and support. Information management policies may need to be tailored to specific geographical regions, as shown by differences between countries.

Study of 2 years follow-up of referral patients with abnormal Pap smear

The aim of our investigation was to find a two-year follow-up of referral patients with abnormal Pap smear values. Materials and Methods: The investigation involved a total of 334 consecutive women aged more than 16 who were diagnosed with an abnormal Pap smear. Conclusions: The majority of patients with abnormal Pap smear on colposcopy and biopsy were healthy at baseline, and biopsy indicated abnormality. Patients in each group's first abnormal Pap smear majority showed a significant decline to normal or less invasive lesion six months after the first abnormal Pap smear majority of patients in each group showed a dramatic decrease to normal or less invasive lesion. After 6 months, only nine patients had deteriorated Pap smear, but only nine patients had deteriorated. Normal Pap smear was obtained by all 308 patients who underwent colposcopy and biopsy 24 months after the first abnormal Pap smear. A long-term follow-up of a patient with abnormal Pap smear can help us avoid needless interventions.

Prevalence of high-risk human papillomavirus and abnormal pap smears in female sex workers compared to the general population in Antwerp, Belgium

Although female sex workers are a significant risk group for Human Papillomavirus infections, no such tailored intervention services for HPV have been established worldwide, as described in this paper. In FSWs, the prevalence of high-risk Human Papillomavirus infections and abnormal pap smears was determined relative to a control group in Antwerp, Belgium, according to the study's aim. Methods HPV genotyping and cytology results were reviewed from routine Pap smear tests that were collected from both FSWs and the general population between June 2006 and June 2010. Results The prevalence of hrHPV DNA in FSWs was 41. 7 percent relative to 19. 8 percent in the age-matched controls, with an overall OR of 2. 8. Conclusions In Antwerp, Belgium, FSWs have a significantly higher risk of hrHPV and more abnormal Pap smears than does the general population.

DIAGNOSTIC VALUE OF COLPOSCOPY IN PATIENTS WITH ABNORMAL PAP SMEAR

Introduction: It's important to reduce invasive cervical cancer in order to minimize invasive cervical cancer, it's also important to monitor patients with abnormal pap smear results. Simply, repeating the cytologic examination in patints with atypical pap smear will result in missing 26-83 percent of squamous intraepithelial lesions and the majority of invasive cancers, with the exception of 50 percent of invasive cancers. This study was conducted to determine the sensitivity and specificity of colposcopy based on the findings of biopsy in women referred to hospitals of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, considering the contradictory results of various research findings regarding the diagnostic value of colposcopy in establishing the abnormal papsmear. Methods: We selected randomly 210 women from 700 patints who reffered to the IUMS hospitals.
