I was told today I have severe cervical dysplasia. Which treatment choice is better hysterectomy or leep?

I was told today I have severe cervical dysplasia. Which treatment choice is better hysterectomy or leep?

Depends: A leep is much less invasive and usually an effective treatment. It can be performed in the office with local anesthesia. A hysterectomy can also be performed and may make more sense in certain circumstances. If you have other medical issues that could be addressed by having a hysterectomy and you are finished with childbearing then a hysterectomy could be a better choice. ...Read more

Depends: Either would be appropriate treatment for severe cervical dysplasia. The best treatment is the one that you are most comfortable with. A LEEP can be curative, but the recurrence risk is 30% to 50%. The recurrence risk after a hysterectomy is less than 55. ...Read more

Are there any alternative non-surgical treatments for a mild cervical dysplasia?

Are there any alternative non-surgical treatments for a mild cervical dysplasia?

Yes: An very acceptable non-surgical treatment of mild dysplasia is watchful waiting since most mild dysplasia will go away on its own. Discontinuation of smoking and birth control pills could also help. There is some possibility that anti-oxidants, like vitamin c and vitamin a, may be useful as well, but i would recommend moderation in use of supplements since high doses may have side effects. ...Read more

If I have cervical dysplasia, could it definitely progress to cancer?

If I have cervical dysplasia, could it definitely progress to cancer?

Usually No: Most commonly the dysplasia will resolve on ts own, not, in fact, progress to cancer. The greater the level of dysplasia (graded i, ii, or iii) the more likely it will progress but even the most advanced dysplasia may not become cancer. Not smoking and taking Folic Acid regularly may help your body to eradicate the dysplasia naturally. But don't avoid seeing the doctor! ...Read more

What is cervical dysplasia?

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

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 happens if cervical dysplasia is left untreated?

What happens if cervical dysplasia is left untreated?

Nothing good: Cervical dysplasia is what is called a pre-cancerous condition; it's not cancer, but there is a risk that it will develop into cervical cancer. Managing it depends on the degree of the dysplasia, and it is really important that you continue to follow-up with your doctor to prevent it from progressing. The earlier you treat these lesions, the easier they are to control! ...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
