Recent pap stated I have mild dysplasia or “low grade changes” per nurse. I now have to get a colposcopy. What do I expect next?

Colposcopy: A pap smear is used to detect precancerous cells on the cervix but it does not tell you where the cells came from or how deep they go. A colposcopy is used to locate exactly where the problem is on the cervix and to find out how extensive or deep the abnormal cells go. Then a treatment plan can be determined.
