Cervix and HPV: No it is not too late. It is just on time and you got the appropriate screening test. This test shows you have the potential to get cancer, not that you have cancer. The doctors now should under coloposcopy examine the tissue, biopsy or otherwise treat the abnormal cells and then watch you on a regular basis with follow up pap smears. I would also highly recommend the hpv vaccine.

Good advice. HPV is permanent, it is a viral infection (consider the vaccine.) CIN 1 is a microscopic diagnosis, it is not necessarily permanent.
