testing every 3 years, and then followed with cytologic
testing plus hrHPV testing (cotesting) for women 30-65 years old; if a normal cytologic
test result and positive hrHPV test results, move to cotesting in 1 year or immediate genotyping triage.
One of the Grade 3 ductal carcinoma diagnosed in cytologic

"The diagnosis of malignant melanoma should be made with great caution in this population," they concluded, pointing out that the histopathologic features alone (cytologic
