Probably go away: HPV is very common but it will go away in most people until reinfection occurs. We know more about progression of HPV changes in the cervix than in the anal or oral areas. So far, we know there is a predictable sequence of dysplasia progression to cancer over years in the cervix only. LSIL may go away by itself, but make sure you follow up. There is no standard screening yet for anal or oral.
