Trust your doctor: CIN3 has a high likelihood of developing into cancer over time. Nobody can give you exact chances. Laser and LEEP are good options but if they fail, hysterectomy isn’t uncommon. If you are against surgery, consider a second opinion as nobody online can give a good recommendation without examining you and your medical history.
