Doctor insights on:
What factors/reasons determine the type of CIN of HPV? How to know which CIN is next? Had a laser to remove CIN1. Discharging stopped. Pap in 2 mnths
Good question: No one knows why some women get fairly rapid progression to aggressive CIN's after meeting HPV and others never have problems. Even identified possible risk factors are of small effect. Comply with your instructions and you are well-protected against a lethal outcome. Cervical cancer was once THE great cancer killer of women. Best wishes. ...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
E6/e7 on pap but when did biopsy it was cin1 I read e6/e7 positive means at least cin 2 so did they miss something on biopsy?
Got CIN1 of HPV16. Dr wants to do laser to remove then will do Pap tests after 3months. Also an individual plan for me. Is he right? Is this the best?
Yes: This sounds like a good plan. Stay vigilant and compliant and you'll be safe. ...Read more
Trust the Pap: You will want follow-up and I trust you will comply with the instructions you receive. You are in no immediate danger. I am glad you are taking a proactive approach to your health. Best wishes. ...Read more
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
Hi- on pap smear shows cin1 - I want to get the cryosurgery just to be sure- is there a better method for this stage? Thanks
I just got my pap smear result and it came back saying I have CIN1 is it treatable and does it go away. ..what does CIN1 means?
Do follow it up: Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. You've got some clearly-abnormal cells growing in the very surface layer of your cervix. They are not an immediate danger but are the breeding ground for nastier stuff. It's more likely than not to self-cure but you'll probably have a discussion with your physician, a possible HPV virus test / biopsy / laser / management. Stay on top of it. ...Read more
I have colposcopy positive cin1 results, now what? Do they have to do colposcopy again if positive hpv/neg pap again?
Regular follow-up: Cin 1 generally requires regular yearly follow-up pap smears to ensure that the lesion is not getting worse. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor who has more information about your health. ...Read more
Hey- 8 months ago CIN 1 in pap smear test and now the pap was good? - I didn't do any treatment- how can it be possible? - is the test reliable? Thanks
You should be happy: The pap test is fairly reliable. Cin 1 can regress and go away, it often does due to immune response that the body tends to mount to an infection and clear it up in most cases. ...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
Is it harmful if I decided to do laser for CIN1 instead of follow ups and Pap tests? I want to get rid of it asap. I don't want to keep worrying. Help
What triggers HPV's lesions (CIN)?? What factors contribute of getting it again? Got CIN1 removed by laser in Feb/15. Did Pap test in May and no CINs.
No known triggers: There are no known triggers, just bad luck. Tobacco is a possible exception; higher rates in cigarette smokers. CIN1 is mild displasia that rarely progresses to cancer. Follow your doctor's advice about follow-up exams and pap smears. Probably you won't have any further recurrences, and with proper follow-up, your risk of cervical cancer in the future is very low. ...Read more
Recently I was told that my pap was abnormal (CIN1) since then, I have had horrible pain during and after sex. Now I am having a dark brown discharge that is coming out in chunks. What is going on with me???
Get checked: An abnormal pap will not cause these symptoms. You need to be thoroughly evaluated. ...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
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
Did laser to remove CIN1 on Feb15. How long & often will CIN emerge again? How to reduce it? Still discharging Regular Pap test and next year HPV test.
Did Pap test 3 months post laser HPV CIN1 removal and its normal (no lesion). When to do next? Dr. says in Feb/16 (1yr post the surgery) is he right?
Is it possible to get HPV again after showing "not detected" and "clean" in my Pap tests & colposcopy? Have HPV16 now & CIN1. And how to remove CIN1??
Yes: These viruses can show up and can disappear without any obvious explanation. Your physician can advise you on whether CIN-1 even needs to be treated, or just followed closely. The key is that if you are compliant, what's happening will not be a significant danger to your life or health. In the old days, it killed millions of women. Nowadays, it's easily managed. ...Read more
Last PMS on 04.08. 7dys ago a had pap and gyn control. Results CIN1. Gyn said I had follicule 22mm, . Today I have light spots? Can the cause be CiN1
Unrelated: The CIN (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia) 1 is a mild pre-cancerous change that is usually not visible or evident. The diagnosis is based on tissue evaluation and if used interchangeably for Pap smear findings, requires at least cytology assessment (e.g. analyzing characteristics of cells). Of course, there is always the possibility that what's going on/in the cervix is more than CIN 1. ...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
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
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
I've had HPV CIN 1 show up on my pap smears for the past 5 yrs or more. Should I seek treatment or wait to see if it regress or progress into cancer?
Abnormal pap came back HPV positive/cin1. Sent for colposcopy. Biopsy came back mild. But new pap is moderate-severe. Now have blood tinged discharge?
In right course...: You have been in right course of care and luckily so far you are on safe side. Remember no test including biopsy can bring a 100 % of firm diagnosis as it is supposed to do and every life event including a disease always displays on its pattern of full spectrum; hence it is hard to discern what it may be at the early stage of disease and at the very end, almost anyone can tell what it is. Life! ...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
