Pathology results for colopscopy

I want to preface this with the automated results I got back said everything was negative. However, someone from my doctor's office still called me and they have not returned any of my subsequent phone calls. I was just hoping someone could deciper some of the pathology results and their meaning. Needless to say I'll be doing more hounding in the form of phone calls in the morning. 

-2 biopsies were taken from my cervix. The results both said "polypoid fragment of benign squamous epithelium."

Do I have a benign growth?

The third was taken from the endocervix, in the form of curettings.

"Detached fragments of benign squamous epithelium."


"Scant endocervical glandular epithelium."

Any information you could offer on these findings would be most appreciated.

What did you find out from your doctor? Squamous just refers to the type of cell. It does not indicate anything cancerous. Especially when it says benign.

I hope this helps!
