How serious is a CIN 3 cervical dysplasia for a woman in her 20's?

How serious is a CIN 3 cervical dysplasia for a woman in her 20's?

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! to learn from other women with this, go to: https://www.Inspire.Com/groups/national-cervical-cancer-coalition/discussion/cin-3-scared/. ...Read more

Yes: Deciding to place an iud should have no effect on management of your abnormal pap smear.

Can you survive cortical dysplasia?

Yes: Cortical dysplasia refers to a congenital (present at birth) abnormality in the brain’s development. As the brain naturally develops in utero, neurons migrate outward to the cerebral cortex.
