How serious is a CIN 3 cervical dysplasia for a woman in her 20's?

How serious is a CIN 3 cervical dysplasia for a woman in her 20's?

Needs follow-up!: Cin 3 cervical dysplasia means pre-cancerous cells were found on your pap smear. It's caused by hpv, a virus. The next step is a "colposcopy", which means a doctor looks at your cervix with a microscope after putting vinegar on it. Sounds weird, but the vinegar makes early cancer turn white so it can be removed. This will ensure you don't get cervical cancer later! don't be scared... Just get treated! to learn from other women with this, go to: https://www.Inspire.Com/groups/national-cervical-cancer-coalition/discussion/cin-3-scared/. ...Read more

Whats cervical dysplasia mean?

Whats cervical dysplasia mean?

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

Could cervical dysplasia ever be cured?

Could cervical dysplasia ever be cured?

Yes: Cervical dysplasia, or precancer cells, often go away without treatment and the hpv virus that stimulated the cells to become abnormal can also disappear. If cervical dysplasia doesn't go away, it is treatable and curable by procedures like freezing, laser, or leep which can remove all evidence of abnormal cells along with the hpv virus. ...Read more

What are the tests for Cervical dysplasia?

What are the tests for Cervical dysplasia?

Cervical Dysplasia: Tests for Cervical Dysplasia include serveral - starting with the PAP test, which is cytology (cells) from the cervix. If this or the High Risk Human Papilloma Virus test is positive, colposcopy (microscopic exam) is done and biopies are taken (small tissue samples). This allows for detection of Uterine Cervical Dysplasia. Treatment is another topic entirely. ...Read more

How is cervical dysplasia typically treated?

Several methods: Cervical dysplasia can be treated by a cone biopsy or leep procedure (in which a small portion of the cervix is removed), or sometimes by laser or cryotherapy(freezing), both of which destroy the abnormal cells but do not remove the area for further examination. There is good evidence that the hpv vaccines can decrease the risk of developing dysplasia in the first place. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of cervical dysplasia?

No symptoms: There are no symptoms that go along with cervical dysplasia/abnormal pap smears leading to precancerous cells of the cervix. This is why having an annual pap smear done is so important. It allows early precancerous changes in the cervix to be diagnosed and treated. Hpv vaccination is recommended for all men and women between 9-26 years old to prevent this problem. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of Cervical dysplasia?

None: Unfortunately there are no symptoms of cervical dysplasia. The only way to detect it is with Pap smears and possibly HPV testing, thus the importance of regular exams. ...Read more

What are the complications of Cervical dysplasia?

Progression: Cervical dysplasia is a gradient with mild changes often reverting to normal spontaneously and more advanced changes possibly leading to cancer. The key is knowing where you lie on that spectrum and also whether HPV (most agree the primary cause) is present. This, along with other factors, will determine appropriate treatment. ...Read more

What are symptoms of cervical dysplasia besides warts?

Different things: Genital warts almost always occur externally (you can see them without a speculum). Most often they will be on the vulva and rarely are they dysplastic (pre-malignant). They are also called condyloma accuminata. Cervical dysplasia occurs on the opening into your uterus and implies pre-malignant changes to the cells. Both are caused by HPV. Your pap tests will evaluate for cervical dysplasia. ...Read more

Can you reverse cervical dysplasia through lifestyle changes?

Unknown: Cervical dyslasia is caused by the hpv viruses. It can go away without treatment but the chance of that depends on the severity of the dysplasia and a patients age the immune system plays a role so a healthy diet and avoiding smoking may help. Unfortunately there is no strong research to tell us which lifestyle changes might work. Always discuss a plan, especially for followup, with your doc. ...Read more
