What causes Cervical dysplasia?

What causes Cervical dysplasia?

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

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

What is cervical dysplasia?

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 more

What does this mean? Inverted papilloma with dysplasia and foci of in situ invasive squamous cell carcinoma (transitional)?

Premalignant: An inverted papilloma is a tumor in which surface epithelial cells grow downward into the underlying supportive tissue. It may occur in the nose and/or sinuses or in the urinary tract (bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra).. With dysplasia and in-situ squamous Ca this would probably be a premalignant sinus carcinoma bordering on squamous cell Ca needing resection. ...Read more

Please explain what it means in laymens terms when someone dies of "fibromuscular dysplasia of the small coronary artery"?

Rare disorder: There is blockage in the heart's arteries which is not due to garden variety "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis) but, instead it's due to scarring - the cause of which is not understood. If enough small arteries are involved, the result can be heart failure and/or rhythm disturbance resulting in death. My condolences for your loss. ...Read more

What is fibromuscular dysplasia and how serious this condition is? It was diagnosed by brain and neck angiogram and involves carotid and vertebral arteries

Can be serious: Fibromuscular dysplagia in carotid and vertebral arteries is thickening of the blood vessels going to the brain. It usually indicates narrowing in these arteries which can eventually reduce the blood supply to the brain. It is best to consult a vascular surgeon to determine how extensive it is and what is the best treatment. ...Read more

What's the difference between metaplasia and dysplasia?

What's the difference between metaplasia and dysplasia?

Benign vs precancer: Metaplasia (on the cervix) is simply cell changes that are not typical for that area. It is not considered dangerous or pre-malignant so nothing is usually done. Dysplasia, on the other hand, is a pre-cancerous change. Dysplasia can be mild or severe and usually requires surveillance or treatment. I hope that helps. ...Read more
