What Is Difference Between Dyskaryosis 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
Type of growth:
Hyperplasia = increased growth (may be normal or abnormal cells)
dysplasia=abnormal cell growth. ...Read more
Oxygen dependency: Bpd is a disease of the lungs of premature babies. Specific definitions vary, however is is generally defined as oxygen need at about one month of age. It typically results from long term mechanical ventilation in premies. The lungs continue to grow for he first few years of life and many outgrow the condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal bones: Skeletal dysplasias represent abnormal structure and development of bones. Some are genetic in their etiology. Dysplasia is classified according to part of bone affected, epiphysis, metaphysis, or diaphysis Bone deformities can develop and often dwarfism is result of bone dysplasia. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Ectodermal dysplasia: Ectodermal dysplasia = group of syndromes/disorder affecting structure of ectodermal origin (such as skin, hair, nails, teeth, sweat glands). ...Read more
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. ...Read more

I have had 2 colposcopies showing low grade dysplasia. I am due for another colposcopie soon but want an iud. Can I have one before the my colposcopie?
Yes: Deciding to place an iud should have no effect on management of your abnormal pap smear. At the present, careful surveillance (as you are undergoing) for low grade dysplasia is the most reasonable approach. An std screen (which you probably already have had) is appropriate prior to placement of an iud. ...Read more
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. Should these neurons fail to spread out and position correctly, the signals will misfire – triggering a seizure. Anti-seizure meds can be used to help patients. How this affects a patient is quite variable. ...Read more
Fibrous dysplasia: Fd is not hereditary. We did not get fd from our parents and we cannot pass it on to our children. Fd is caused by a mutation that occurs sometime during development of a baby while it is still in the mother's uterus. If the mutation occurs early in development, many tissues may be affected. If it occurs late in development, very few tissues may have the mutation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Usually none: A pap smear is the way most dysplasias are found. Typically there are no symptoms. If one gets regular pap smears starting at age 21 and every 2-3 years thereafter, dysplasia should be caught early. Occasionally you may present with bleeding at weird times or after intercourse or have a watery discharge. This is more worrisome if one has neglected pap test. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
