In brief: Precancerous cells

Dysplasia of the cervix are cells which are showing cellular changes consistent with pre-cancerous lesions.
They are graded as low-grade (atypia or cin-1) or high-grade (cin 2, 3, or carcinoma in situ). Low grade cells can be followed while high grade lesions need to be identified (colposcopy) & removed (leep or cone biopsy).
