Recurrence Of Cervical Dysplasia After 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.

What do you advise if I was told today I have severe cervical dysplasia. Which treatment option is best, hysterectomy or leep?

I have had a colposcopy and a leep for cervical dysplasia and my follow up pap shows another low grade lesion. I have HPV. I'm worried about fertility?
Good to be concerned: Studies have shown that patients who have had a LEEP procedure may have a higher incidence of cervical stenosis or premature delivery from cervical incompetence. However, HPV alone will NOT prevent you from getting pregnant assuming there are no other factors like tubal occlusion or lack of ovulation. If the HPV progresses to overt cervical cancer then fertility options will be revisited. ...Read more

PRE-cancer: Dysplasia refers to abnormal cells on the cervical surface that can progress to cancer if ignored. It is usually caused by a virus called HPV. These can be seen under a microscope when a pathologist looks at a biopsy and can be suggested by an abnormal Pap smear. If the dysplasia is "low grade" it may go away on its own. If "high grade" you need treatment by surgery, laser or freezing the area. ...Read more
Different things: Genital warts almost always occur externally (you can see them without a speculum). Most often they will be on the vulva and rarely are they dysplastic (pre-malignant). They are also called condyloma accuminata. Cervical dysplasia occurs on the opening into your uterus and implies pre-malignant changes to the cells. Both are caused by HPV. Your pap tests will evaluate for cervical dysplasia. ...Read more
Needs follow-up!: Cin 3 cervical dysplasia means pre-cancerous cells were found on your pap smear. It's caused by hpv, a virus. The next step is a "colposcopy", which means a doctor looks at your cervix with a microscope after putting vinegar on it. Sounds weird, but the vinegar makes early cancer turn white so it can be removed. This will ensure you don't get cervical cancer later! Don't be scared... Just get treated!
