Background & Objective: The importance of Pap smear in cervical cancer screening is clear. However, yet no organized program has been developed in Iran to screen cervical cancer. Due to the obvious difference in prevalence of cervical cancer in Iran compared to global statistics, it is necessary to further investigate this issue. As pop smear is the most important factor to decrease the mortality and morbidity of cervical cancer in developed countries, it is important to study the results of abnormal Pap smears and the quality of the report in our region.
Materials & Methods: This study was designed retrospectively with reference to the results of Pap smears performed during 3 years from 2016 in the Kosar hospital. The method of collecting samples was census. The results of Pap smears were extracted from the Hospital and 15208 pap smear results were analyzed.
Results: From the 15208 women, 15150 had normal cytology results (99.62%) and 58 women had abnormal cytology (0.38%). The frequency of abnormal cytology was 0.246% (n=37) for atypical squamous cell of undetermined significance (ASCUS), 0.08% (n=12) for low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), 0.006% (n=1)for ASC cannot exclude high-grade intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H), 0.046% (n=7) for high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion(HSIL), 0.006 (n=1)for atypical glandular cells (AGC), and 0% (n=0) for invasive cancer. No SCC was found in this study. Conclusion: The prevalence of all abnormal results was much lower than other studies; However, in terms of prevalence of abnormalities, the ranking was similar to other studies.In order to obtain more accurate results, it is recommended to study other epidemiological regions.
