Abstract: Identifying premalignant and benign diseases of the cervix and selecting an appropriate treatment path can be challenging. The aim of this study is to describe the role of cytological diagnosis in detection of non-malignant and neoplastic lesions of the cervix in tertiary hospital. This was a hospital-based cross-sectional study on women aged 20-70 years admitted over the period January 2013-2015 to the Obstetric Gynaecologic University Hospital Queen Geraldine, in Tirana, Albania. One thousand Pap smears were taken and sent to the department of pathology for analysis. During this study 212 Pap smears were examined in our laboratory. The ages of the subjects ranged from 20 to 68 years, with a mean of 43.814.7 years.21 (10 %) smears showed premalignant or malignant changes. The normal cervix varies throughout life, and understanding this transition is key to diagnosis of differences noted on evaluation of the cervix.
