Varies: An important factor is age. The younger the person is, the greater the probability of resolution. The diagnosis is more ominous after age 40, but there is no set schedule or certainty of progress.

Cervical dysplasia: Moderate dysplasia of the cervix should not turn into cancer if properly treated and followed.
