Endometrial cells on Pap - second time

An_252368 posted:
am a 55 year old woman. I am in excellent health and slightly overweight (about 20 pounds) I exercise regularly and watch my diet. I still get my period but this past month was irregular in timing.

I had a pap smear in January with atypical endometrial cells of undetermined significance. The doctor did a colpcoscopy and found a cervical polyp which was removed. She also did an vaginal ultrasound. She said everything looked good and wanted to do a retest of the Pap in June. The retest of the Pap again had some endometrial cells. I am now concerned as to what could be causing these cells to appear. Is this common in woman my age who are still menstruating. I had the PAP on June 6 and got my period today June 18th.The prior period was on April 25th.

Thanks
