Severe : Severe dysplasia means that there are concerning changes in the cells. This will need to be followed closely with your gynecologist for the appropriate and best treatment for you. I am sorry that you are having to go through this.

Agree with Dr. E: Please follow your doctor's advice for follow up tests and treatment. Even though you may not have any symptoms, it is prudent to address the issue. Get HPV vaccine to prevent infection with other strains. Avoid alcohol, tobacco, weed and street drugs. Wish you good health.
