PRE-cancer: Dysplasia refers to abnormal cells on the cervical surface that can progress to cancer if ignored. It is usually caused by a virus called HPV. These can be seen under a microscope when a pathologist looks at a biopsy and can be suggested by an abnormal Pap smear. If the dysplasia is "low grade" it may go away on its own. If "high grade" you need treatment by surgery, laser or freezing the area.
