Results of smear
I have been to my house doctor for a smear. The doctor phoned my yesterday saying that the smear had abnormal cells, which could be caused by infection. She wants to see me in 6 months time. Should I wait until then, or do you think I must rather go and see my Gynae.

Thank you

You should have the infection treated and have the smear repeated in six months. If the abnormality was a precursor of cancer, I'm sure that your doctor would have told you this.
