At the visit defined as a progression visit 35% had progressed to ASCUS, 0.37% ASCH, 57% to LGSIL, 7% to HGSIL, and 0.41% to cancer.
If cytology at this first year of follow-up of the original ASC-US or LGSIL is HGSIL or greater, colposcopy should be done.
Of the abnormal Pap specimens, 124 (61%) were reported as AS-CUS, 68 (33.5%) reported as LGSIL, and 11 (5%) reported as HGSIL.

In the single-visit group, 16 women had Pap smears that were diagnosed as HGSIL or AGUS.
In contrast, 19 women in the usual-care group had Pap smear diagnoses of HGSIL or AGUS, but only 10 of them (53%) initiated follow-up treatment.
Most of Pap abnormalities were reported as ASCUS (67.3%) or AGCUS (21%); 10.9% were LGSIL; and 0.9% were HGSIL. More important, no women in the first year were found to have high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN).
