Power check file in ksh


I have a file with below contents, 3 lines, all are PASS:
cat filetest.log

I would need to check this file to ensure the contents are remain unchanged with only 3 lines and 3 PASS as above, and should return 0 for every check, if any of these content are change then should return 1.

Appreciate of any help given here.
