How common is it for cervical cancer to come back after a cone biopsy?

How common is it for cervical cancer to come back after a cone biopsy?

Not common.: The answer depends on what procedue (cold knife cone) or leep procedure was done. Surveillance for up to one year with repeat pap and colposcopy screening helps determine if disease persists or recurs. Another helpful tip comes from the pathologist. If the diseased area removed has "negative margins" your risk of persistent disease is low. Avoid getting another hpv infection too!

Can the doctors tell if a person has cervical cancer before they get a cone biopsy done?

Cervical cancer: Sometimes it's possible to tell ahead of time but not always. Usually a biopsy is done first to make the diagnosis. But since the biopsy is just a small piece of tissue, it's possible that there may be a cancer in a different area of the cervix that wasn't biopsied. In that case, it would be found on the pathology of the cone biopsy instead.

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.
