You : You need to discuss the results of your pap smear with your doctor again so you better understand what was found. Sometimes a test is done with the pap smear to determine if the cerix is infected with a strain of hpv that would put you at a higher risk for cancer and sometimes a special examination of the cervix called a colposcopy is needed to double check the area. Thankfully, many, many women who have abnormal cells will not develop cancer. ...Read more

If I had an abnormal pap with severe dysplasia level 3, does it mean that I have cervical cancer?

If I had an abnormal pap with severe dysplasia level 3, does it mean that I have cervical cancer?

Some can spontaneously regress, but some can progress to frank cancer. As such, treatment options can include anything from doing nothing to actually removing the offending lesion(s). ...Read more

Can i develop cervical cancer in a year? I had a leep a year ago for severe dysplasia i have my appointment next week... Really scared im 23.

Can i develop cervical cancer in a year? I had a leep a year ago for severe dysplasia i have my appointment next week... Really scared im 23.

Severe Dysplasia: Linda the reason they took the tissue out is it had the chance of turning into cancer, I'm almost positive that they wanted you to come back in 6 months to get repeat testing, probably a colposcopy. This is because they wanted to make sure everything was ok. So it has been a year now, there is no sense being so scared. You need to get the exam and testing. Chances are it will not be cancer! ...Read more

Can i get cervical cancer in within a year of my leep for severe dysplasia?

Can i get cervical cancer in within a year of my leep for severe dysplasia?

Probably not: Cervical cancer is rare at your age (23), and LEEP was intended to remove dysplastic pre-cancer tissue, so whatever low risk there was probably is now gone. However, your doctor probably advised follow-up exams and testing to assure there is no recurrence. Follow that advice, or contact the doctor's office if uncertain about it. Also ask about vaccination against HPV to further reduce future risk. ...Read more

Of the 5% of people who do have dysplasia after first having a Lletz and 1 year later a cone biopsy, how many will develop cervical cancer?

Of the 5% of people who do have dysplasia after first having a Lletz and 1 year later a cone biopsy, how many will develop cervical cancer?

Depends on staging: If the procedures were done for CIN III also known as severe dysplasia or carcinoma in situ and it was eradicated TOTALLY by Pathology report then there are few recurrences of note. If the Lletz or LEEP procedure extended beyond the borders on the Pathology report or was invasive carcinoma then statistics are different entirely. ...Read more
