Follow up: Please follow your doctor's advice about continuing surveillance by repeat PAP smears. Even if it gets worse, God forbid, it could be addressed by removing the whole uterus. Wish you good health!

No cause for alarm: If the cone biopsy was adequate and removed the entire lesion and if your HPV test (human papilloma virus) showed no"high risk oncogenic subtype, you are cured and are very unlikely to be contagious. Mild dysplasia on Pap test (which is often called CIN-1 on cervical biopsy) is usually a benign, transient condition that frequently resolves spontaneously, particularly in young healthy women.
