Default question

I got another call from the doctors office and another letter saying I need to go in for follow up.My question is for women who have had abnormal pap smears.How many have been told their results are one of the two worst cases out of the 2000 per year they discover yearly?I so need to know if this is just bs or not.My own mother dismissed it when I told her a month ago.Is it common to tell the "patient" they are one of the two worst test results for the year? Also,she told me again that the letter was misleading because it said the cultures came back normal but the cell test result shows I am definately one of the 2 worst of the 2000 tests done yearly.I feel this is not the case.The first letter said the cultures came back normal and I just needed anti biotics.But the message now is I am one of the 2 worst test results out of 2000 and it is serious.Anyone think what I am?That I am being bamboozled?

I'm shocked a letter would even say that, let alone a doctor! I wonder what it really means. I've had abnormal paps before, but was never told how bad they were.
