I was just told I had an abnormal pap test. What does it mean to have mildly abnormal dysplasia cells?

In brief: Common problem

Mild dysplasia is one of the first stages of abnormality to occur when a cervix is infected by hpv (human papiloma virus).
This is a common probem and fortunately the body can often clear it by itself. While dysplasia can progress from mild to worse, this is easily treated and most therapy involves monitoring any changes and treating them if the get worse. Trust your OB and don't worry.
