In brief: Changes due to HPV

Your risk of low grade cells progressing to high grade cells depends on your age.
If you are 22 years or younger, it is very likely that the lesion will resolve on its own. However, if you are older, 20-40% of low grade lesions will progress to high grade and require further workup, possible including biopsy or surgery.
