What is it?

Papanicolaou smear of the cervix with low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL) refers to categorizing Pap smear findings as mildly abnormal cervical cells. The overall risk of cancer in patients with LSIL is less than 1%. Usually, it goes away without any treatment and is reversible. According to current guidelines, the surveillance depends on the woman's age and whether she was found to be a carrier for the HPV virus:
Women between ages 21-24 will be recommended to have a Pap smear once a year.
Women over 35 and positive HPV testing, will probably go through colposcopy, which is a minor procedure in which there is a magnified view of the cervix.
