 Biologictherapy.Org: Bladder Cancer: Squamous cell carcinoma   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are rare but tend to be of high grade and have a poor prognosis.
The lesions consist of one cell type resembling keratinocytes in their protein profiles, and exhibiting distinct squamous characteristics, such as pearl formation and keratohyalin bodies.
The histiogenesis of SCCs is unclear, although these lesions may arise from extensive squamous metaplasia of TCCs (i.e., CIS or high grade papillary TCCs) or from neoplastic transformation — on the basis of squamous metaplasia — of the bladder urothelium (see diagram below).

 Articles on Abnormal Pap Smear with Atypical Squamous Cell Changes - ASCUS
If you remember your biology, the nucleus is larger in proportion to the cytoplasm in the cell than it normally is. This increased nuclear activity can be due to infection or cellular repair processes, irritation associated with atrophic changes of the low estrogen menopausal state, or external agents causing cell damage such as radiation therapy.
In general, ASCUS (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance) is not a precancerous change.
Any treatment that destroys the abnormal cells such as cryotherapy, laser, LEEP, electrical cautery or hyfercation (thermal heat cautery) will hopefully induce normal cells to heal over the destroyed area and result in a normal Pap smear after healing has taken place.
