Cervical Dysplasia Colposcopy
Precancer of cervix: Cin is a precancerous condition of the cervix. It is almost always caused by the human papilloma virus (genital warts). There are several strains of this virus. Some of them cause actual warts, and others don't cause warts but insert their dna into the host (that means you), causing cellular changes that can go on to become cervical cancer. ...Read more
Precancerous cells: Dysplasia of the cervix are cells which are showing cellular changes consistent with pre-cancerous lesions. They are graded as low-grade (atypia or cin-1) or high-grade (cin 2, 3, or carcinoma in situ). Low grade cells can be followed while high grade lesions need to be identified (colposcopy) & removed (leep or cone biopsy). ...Read more
Abnormal cells: This is complicated so stay with me. Hpv is a virus that can infect cells on the cervix. When hpv gets into the cell it can cause the cell to make abnormal proteins. This makes the cell look different under the microscope. If the infection progresses, the cells can become cancerous. This is rare but dysplasia should be addressed. It can go away on its own in some cases. Others need treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cervical: Yes, by an uninitiated pathologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Usually HPV virus: Dysplasia is one of the early steps in mucosal transformation. The phenotypic structure of the mucosal cells begins to transform toward malignant phenotype and can be picked up on Pap. With newer monoclonals defining the immunogenic protein characterizing cervical Ca changes, normal mucosal cells can be shown to expression tumor protein even though the cells look normal, the ImmunoPap. ...Read more
Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive. Endocervical margins clear. Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?
At least PAP, may: Require bone biopsy later. From the information you provided, you have residual abnormal cells in the cervix and at a minimum you need to monitor the process by pap. Three months is not likely to cause irreversible changes for the worse and you can wait to see the pap results to decide, in consultation with your doctor, if cone biopsy is needed. ...Read more
Pap smear and it came back with HSIL then biopsy which came back cervix uteri/uterine cervix squamous metaplasia/epidermioid met/epidermailzation?
Generally no.: Endometrial cells can be 'normal' in a pap test depending upon the age of the patient and the time of the menstrual cycle in which the test was performed. If a pap is collected in a premenopausal woman within 10 days of the onset of bleeding / menses, then the endometrial cells are most likely part of uterine shedding. In postmenopausal women, a finding of endometrial cells needs explanation. ...Read more
A warning: Women with cells that have certain abnormal appearances are much more likely to develop cancer of the cervix or nearby structures. If the area with the cells can be found and removed before it turns cancerous, a life has likely been saved. Before pap smears, cancer of the cervix was a horribly common scourge of young women, as it still is in the poor nations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal: It's VERY important to get a colposcopy if your pap is abnormal. A colposcopy is a speculum exam where special stains and magnifying lenses are used to look for pre-cancers on your cervix. If there are abnormalities, your GYN will take a biopsy, which is uncomfortable, but lasts ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had cervical smear result HSIL.follow up biopsy CIN3 with microinvasion.had hysterectomy. Histology chronic non specific cervicitis with squamous meta?
Pathology interpreta: Was a cervical conization, endocervical curettage or endometrial biopsy ever performed? On the final hysterectomy pathology, no CIN or frank cervical cancer was found? This may be due to the fact that the original cervical biopsy removed the entire abnormal area from the cervix. Chronic cervicitis and squamous metaplasia are benign cervical changes. Get another pathologist to re-review the slides ...Read more
No, but need PAP smr: Cervical dysplasia is a risk factor for cervical cancer, but doesn't automatically guarantee cancer. You'll need regular PAP smears if cervical dysplasia is found - yearly surveillance. Make sure you inform your Gynecologist of any changes in your health. Some women don't want to be hassled with yearly visits, & choose to undergo a cone biopsy / cone resection (preserving fertility) or other surg ...Read more
