Unfortunately... yes: Hpv is often (not always) transmitted sexually. The good news: it can lie dormant and never return. The bad: there are several forms of hpv that can cause anything from genital warts to pre-cancerous lesion to cancer. By using protection with your partner(s), you can help decrease the possible transmission and possibility of having hpv of any type show up again in future pap smears. ...Read more
Please answer, if one had ovarian cancer, could it metastasis to pelvis and present on pap as cin 1?
Pap and ovarian CA: First just remember a Pap test is only good for finding cervical CA. It doesn't find ovarian or uterine CA. That's why ovarian CA is called the silent CA and uterine CA presents with bleeding. Your abnormal pap is not even at a level where it would be CA yet. Talk to your doctor and ask if the CA cells from the ovarian CA look like the pap. Sounds like u have a new problem. Hang in there! ...Read more
I made 2 pap smears at 2 different gyn, 1 week apart, one says CIN1, no HPV, the other one no CIN no HPV. Which one is wrong and why?
Cervical dysplasia: As in my previous reply, the negative (normal) result is wrong. Pap smears miss up to 30% of cervical dysplasia, but an abnormal result never is false. You definitely have dysplasia/CIN1. ...Read more
CIN3 may come first: A diagnosis of CIN3 may be the first diagnosis, even with previously normal pap smears. The CIN classification is used to indicate the amount of abnormal cells or "dysplasia" present. That is done by determining to what level of thickness (bottom to top) in the cervix that the abnormal cells have grown--e.g. CIN1~1/3; CIN2~2/3; CIN3 full thickness. HPV infection causes CIN1 through CIN3. ...Read more
Pap Smears: Cin 1 is the stage the cervical cells are at on your pap smear. The changes range from zero to five. Zero being no prediction that you could be at risk for cancer and five being cancer. One is a common early warning stage. The next step is usually a colposcopy to make sure there are no worse changes and to treat what they can see to normalize and lower your risk for cervical cancer. ...Read more
Safety in numbers: In the pre-vaccine era serum studies of college juniors showed as many as 70% of women carried evidence of hpv. Once acquired, the germ can fade from view & resurface years later, with or without treatment. Newborns have been known to pick up hpv & develop vocal cord warts, yet these are rare. The fact that this is so common & most people go on with a nl life should be a comfort. ...Read more
What is the latest follow-up protocol for CIN 1, 2, and 3 respectively for hrhpv positive patient? Thank you!
Please f.u with Gyn:
Depends on what type of hpv you are infected. Certain types are more likely to cause cervical cancer than others. Cin 1 may be just followed for 2 -3 years depending on the type of hpv. Cin 2 - 3 may require further evaluation and therapy with your gynecologist.
Hope that helps. ...Read more
What to do if I had an abnormal pap then a biopsy I am freaking out !! I have CIN 1 help me please.?
It's ok: CIN 1 is a low grade abnormality that in most cases can be watched. It is usually due to HPV infection- a sexually transmitted virus over 85% of sexually active women have. Your management will depend on what your pap test showed, so be sure to contact your doctor. CIN 1 lesions rarely progress to cancer, but you need to follow up. ...Read more
Hi - is HPV permanent? If I have CIN 1 its for the rest of my life? Is there anything to treat it or too late? Thanks
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. ...Read more
Why did my leep show all 3 cins? 1,2,3? Does that mean that the CIN 1 is still progressing to sin 2 and and will progress to CIN 3?
In a way yes: This is common in patients with severe dysplasia different areas will have no dysplasia and some areas will have mild dysplasia. These findings are better than having severe dysplasia everywhere. All these areas should be removed completely sometimes it is difficult to remove mild dysplasia at the margins margins. Does removing all the dysplasia can be a care. ...Read more
Chronic cervicitis: HPV 16 and 18 are most commonly associated with cervical cancer. You should be evaluated by a GYN to be certain there are no additional STIs involved and then assessed for the type of treatment. Conization may be indicated, or possibly more extensive surgery. You should also receive the HPV vaccine. Good luck. ...Read more
Mutiple hysteroscopy w/ d&c for recurring endometrial benign polys now have cin 1 tiny lesion which was removed unreasonable to ask for hysterectomy?
If I have CIN 1 on pap test- does that mean i got the dangerous HPV type? Does that mean precancerous cells? Thanks
Pap Smears: This question no longer needs us to speculate. Any good physician doing a pap in america today would be including the dna hybrid test to see if you have a strain of the cancer causing hpv viruses. The skin changes classified by cin 1, 2 or above are one part of the test. The dna hpv hybrid results are the other. I would ask your gynecologist what the hybrid test showed. ...Read more
I have clear/white fleshy looking floaties in my urine. Almost daily. I am female, 35. I have mild CIN 1 cervical dysplasia. ?
If i had found cin1 and cin2-3 and had a leep and got rid of all the cin2-3 and the doctors said the margins showed CIN 1 will that develop into 3?
Not likely: First, positive margins does not necessarily mean ther is still disease. you will need close follow up to monitor this. Second, CIN I, now referred to as Low Grade Cervical Intraepithelial Lesion (LGSIL), rarely progresses to higher grade, and usually eventually resolves. Be good about following this up! ...Read more
If you want to: It's always wise to use barrier protection until you're in what you think will be a lifelong monogamous relationship. But you're in no special danger from sharing love if you have CIN-1. I'm glad you are health-conscious and trust you'll follow this up. ...Read more
Hello, I had my pap test done and this is what I got back: "There is low grade dyskaryosis and HPV type change suggesting CIN 1". Shall I be worried?
HPV on pap: Most people catch HPV several times during their lives. The vast majority clear the virus with no treament. The low grade dyskaryosis is just the HPV virus making some minor changes in the cells. This is most likely all going to go away by the time they recheck in 1 year. I hope this is reassuring. ...Read more
What to do if I had some pap smear results back it said something about HPV CIN 1 and cin3 hsil what does all this mean?
Cancer precursors: HPV/CIN1 means low grade cervical cancer dysplasia or low grade cancer precursor lesions. CIN3/HSIL means high grade cervical dysplasia or high grade cancer precursor lesions. HSIL is a potentially serious process that should not be ignored. Would be good to follow up with an OB/GYN doc who performs colposcopy (a detailed exam of the cervix/vagina under a magnifying lens). Biopsy is likely. ...Read more
Pap smear result states : mildly abnormal with HPV virus and low grade changes ie CIN 1. Is this categorized as class 1 , 2 , 3 or greater?
CIN: The class system of paps has not been used in years. What matters is the pathology (ie, cin 1, 2, 3). ...Read more
Received colposcopy HPV test. CIN 1 with focal koilocytic change. Do I need surgery? Or my immune system will take care of it? Is it fatal?
Acus twice.had colpscopy/biopsy 1 CIN 1,2 negative x dysplasia.hpv negative. did pap test in June and normal now.do i need colpscopy in december?
No: If you have had CIN I. The recommendation is for you to have a pap smear every 6 months until 2 are normal 6 months apart, then to yearly screening. If your last pap was normal, colposcopy is not necessary. Repeat pap 6 months from your last and hopefully that will be normal. Good luck! ...Read more
I was told I have CIN 1 and I have abnormal bleeding. The doctor recommended a LEEP procedure. Is this a good idea since CIN doesn't show symptoms?
Hi-on pap smear :cin 1, and after colposcopy my doctor said he saw white area and took biopsy- did it progress that fast? What could it be? Thank u
HPV infection: Cin 1 is usually used to describe the pathology after a biopsy is taken. It is a low grade cervical abnormality which is related to the hpv virus, it is unclear if cin 1 progresses to more severe abnormality or if it totally regresses in most women over time so it must be followed. Persistent cin 1 over 2 years should be considered for excision or ablation. The white cells just mean that the hp. ...Read more
