Q. What does my urethral swab test reveal?



Hi doctor,

My urethral swab test showed epithelial cells +1, polymorphonuclear cells +1 and no microorganisms found. Please let me know what does it mean. Thank you.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

This report is normal.

  • Epithelial cells are normal cells shed from the urethral wall.
  • Polymorphonuclear cells are insignificant if less than 4 or 5. If more than that, it indicates urethral infection. In your case it is 1, so normal.
  • Also, no infectious microorganisms found.
