Low grade changes like this rarely progress to cancer. Follow your doctor's advice and your cancer risk will be zero.

You are low risk of getting cancer in the near future. Do get repeat PAP tests at the frequency recommended by your doctor. The changes you described are reversible. Wish you good health!
