That means biopsy of the ectocervix showed Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia grade 1, i.e. a mild cervical dysplasia and you likely won’t need treatment. In the majority of these cases, the condition goes away on its own, only about 1% of cases progress to cervical cancer. Your doctor may choose a conservative approach that calls for periodic Pap smears to monitor any changes in abnormal cells.

There is no cancer in the specimen submitted to the laboratory. You should follow your doctor's instructions for repeat PAP smear tests. Wish you good health!
