What is a cervical conization?

Remove precancerous: Cervical conization is a surgery to remove a section of the cervix when there are pre-cancerous cells. This can usually be done in the office, and recovery is not too uncomfortable. Extra repeat pap smears should still be done to make sure all pre-cancerous cells are gone and don't return.

Having hpv 16&58 had cold knife conization 2 weeks ago due to HGSIL. Waiting for pathology results. Your advice for boosting immunity. I don't smoke.

Too late for vaccine: At age 45 + the presence of HGSIL already, it is too late to be immunized with the HPV vaccine which is recommended for ages 11 and up for both boys and girls. After the coniization, you will need regular follow up care with your GYN to avoid recurrences and Rx if you do have them. By the way, be very careful about future sex partners by screening them carefully pre event. ...Read more
