No symptoms: There are no symptoms that go along with cervical dysplasia/abnormal pap smears leading to precancerous cells of the cervix. This is why having an annual pap smear done is so important. It allows early precancerous changes in the cervix to be diagnosed and treated. Hpv vaccination is recommended for all men and women between 9-26 years old to prevent this problem.

Cervical dysphasia: Cervical dysplasia has no symptoms. In contrast, the most common symptom of cervical cancer is abnormal bleeding. If advanced, it can cause pain in the back, pain in the leg, or swelling in the legs.

None: Unfortunately there are no symptoms of cervical dysplasia. The only way to detect it is with Pap smears and possibly HPV testing, thus the importance of regular exams.

What are the main symptoms of cervical dysplasia?

Usually none: A pap smear is the way most dysplasias are found. Typically there are no symptoms. If one gets regular pap smears starting at age 21 and every 2-3 years thereafter, dysplasia should be caught early. Occasionally you may present with bleeding at weird times or after intercourse or have a watery discharge. This is more worrisome if one has neglected pap test.

What are symptoms of cervical dysplasia besides warts?

Different things: Genital warts almost always occur externally (you can see them without a speculum). Most often they will be on the vulva and rarely are they dysplastic (pre-malignant). They are also called condyloma accuminata. Cervical dysplasia occurs on the opening into your uterus and implies pre-malignant changes to the cells. Both are caused by HPV. Your pap tests will evaluate for cervical dysplasia.

Definition/causes: Cervical dysplasia = abnormal changes in the cells on the surface of the cervix that are seen underneath a microscope. Causes: most are due to the human papilloma viruses (hpv). Other risks = giving birth before age 16, smoking, immune difficiency, multiple sexual partners, and having sex before age 18 etc.. Increase your risk of cervical dysplasia.. Consult your doc... Good luck..
