Precancerous Cells: Dysplasia is considered pre-cancerous and is usually graded by severity (mild-moderate-severe). On the cervix, mild dysplasia = mild cervical intra epithelial neoplasia or cin i. The words are often interchangeable and both mean "precancerous". I hope that helped, take care.

Focal high grade dysplasia is very dangerous?

Needs evaluation: You have precancerous cells on the cervix most likely due to the human papilloma virus. Your next step should be colposcopy and biopsy and later most likely a LEEP procedure where the surface of the cervix is removed as an office procedure.

Skeletal dysplasia? What exactly is this andbwhat are symptoms?

Dwarfism: Disproportionately short stature dwarfism is skeletal dysplasia and it is officially osteochondrodysplasia. There are around 200 different disorders. These people have changes of cartilage and bone growth and can develop changes such as abnormal shape and size of the bones, .

Had removed a Tubervillous pulp w/some areas w/ High dysplasia. Will re do in 6 months to be sure all was removed. Is that standard?

Had removed a Tubervillous pulp w/some areas w/ High dysplasia. Will re do in 6 months to be sure all was removed. Is that standard?

Glad it's out: Sounds like a great idea. If there's a recurrence, it'll be early. You were smart to be checked. Continue this over the years. Best wishes.

What is cleidocranial dysplasia?

Bone disease..: Cleidocranial dysplasia is a condition that primarily affects the development of the bones and teeth. It can be inherited from one affected parent, or be a new mutation in an affected individual. It is important for a patient with this disease to see a geneticist. They can help coordinate care with other specialists (bone doctors, dentists) for this disease.

No evidence of malignancy or dysplasia?

No evidence of malignancy or dysplasia?

Sounds good: But that report has to be taken in context with the circumstances (kind of cancer, type of biopsy, any abnormalities in scans, etc.). Whosoever ordered the test should go over it with you. Hope is real.

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.

Very serious illness: The key is avoiding heat and dehydration if the person has no sweat glands, and managing whatever other problems may exist. There are dozens of types. Each needs specialist evaluation.

I have ectodermal dysplasia. Im not sure if my child will come up with the same condition.?

I have ectodermal dysplasia. Im not sure if my child will come up with the same condition.?

Genetics vary: There are different types of ectodermal dysplasia. Some are x-linked recessive and some are autosomal dominant. So depending on which parent has the condition, children could be free from the condition, be carriers, or have the disease. This would depend on the type of ectodermal dysplasia that the parent has.
