Abdominal Pain Answer A5219



ASCUS is an acronym for atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance. It indicates that only minor cellular cervical changes were found and the cause is not known. Therefore, no exact diagnose can be given. Sometimes this result is even due to an infection or inflammation. It does not necessarily mean that cervical dysplasia occurred. Further monitoring is required. This condition can not be transmitted. On the other hand, one of the most often causes for cervical dysplasia is the Human papilloma virus (HPV), which is transmissive. However, it still might be a long way from ASCUS to a cervical dysplasia.
