No cancer: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, there is nothing to be concerned about the result of the biopsy as long as biopsy tissue was representative or all of the lesion.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

I was Diagnosed with Severe Dysplasia (CIN3)involving ectocervical squamous mucosa and fragments of benign endocervical glandular epithelium.?

Cervical Cancer: CIN3 is a high risk precursor to cervical cancer and needs to be treated and followed up. Local procedures like LEEP or cone biopsy are important to exclude possible occult invasion. Follow-up following those with visual exam, pap and HPV testing to exclude recurrence or residual are vital. Visual exam to exclude HPV disease of vagina or vulva are also important. ...Read more

My pathology reports sated I have a. 4 CM rectal polyp, tubular adenoma, with no high-grade dysplasia or malignancy. When should a follow up be done?

My pathology reports sated I have a. 4 CM rectal polyp, tubular adenoma, with no high-grade dysplasia or malignancy. When should a follow up be done?

How was your prep?: "guidelines" are one thing but other considerations come into play when planning your next colonoscopy: 1) what was the method of polyp removal (could the technique used have left polyp material behind?); 2) what was the quality of your prep (if poor, your doc will want you back sooner to complete the exam so other polyps aren't missed); 3) risk of a polyposis syndrome brings you back sooner too. ...Read more

Did I read correctly that dysplasias can develop into invasive cancer in less than a year? How does that imply a likely cure?

Did I read correctly that dysplasias can develop into invasive cancer in less than a year? How does that imply a likely cure?

Consistent follow-up: Majority of the dysplasias do not turn malignant, let alone in less than a year. However, since the risk of malignancy is higher with dysplasia, the condition deserves consistent follow-up, avoidance of carcinogens, like tobacco, taking diagnostic and therapeutic action, like pap smear, endoscopy, excision of suspicious areas and keeping in regular consultation with your doctor. ...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

Yes: Dysplasia is usually indicative of early cancer process. Cervical dysplasia is a premalignant squamous changes of the cervix. There are different terminology system now used in pap and biopsy.

If you have high-grade cervical dysplasia, do you have cancer cells?

If you have high-grade cervical dysplasia, do you have cancer cells?

Not likely: High grade dysplasia is pre-cancerous, but patients with high grade dysplasia are susceptible to developing cancer. Because of the very high risk of developing cancer in association with high grade dysplasia, most patients are treated by a procedure called leep/cone. However, the treatment process is a collaboration between the patient and gyn, and you could request a second pathology review. ...Read more

Dysplasia cells in the lining of my stomach. What is the likely hood of turning to cancer. I see my dr in 6 months.

It really depends: The chances of turning into cancer depends on many factors, the main one being if it is high or low grade. Other factors that may need to be addressed would be a possible infection such as h pylori playing a role or excessive acid production. I would recommend you clarify precisely what the finding was and what the treatment and follow up should be with the diagnosing physician before 6 months. ...Read more

If you have high-grade cervical dysplasia, does that mean that you have cancer cells?

No: A high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (hsil) on pap smear typically equates to moderate to severe squamous dysplasia on cervical biopsy, a precursor to invasive cancer with high-grade lesions being more likely to progress (as opposed to low-grade lesions). Areas of high-grade dysplasia are typically surgically excised so that the chance of progression to invasive cancer is minimized. ...Read more
