Can I get cervical cancer in within a year of my leep for severe dysplasia?

Probably not. Cervical cancer is rare at your age (23), and LEEP was intended to remove dysplastic pre-cancer tissue, so whatever low risk there was probably is now gone. However, your doctor probably advised follow-up exams and testing to assure there is no recurrence. Follow that advice, or contact the doctor's office if uncertain about it. Also ask about vaccination against HPV to further reduce future risk.

Can I develop cervical cancer in a year? I had a leep a year ago for severe dysplasia I have my appointment next week... Really scared im 23.

Severe Dysplasia. Linda the reason they took the tissue out is it had the chance of turning into cancer, I'm almost positive that they wanted you to come back in 6 months to get repeat testing, probably a colposcopy. This is because they wanted to make sure everything was ok. So it has been a year now, there is no sense being so scared. You need to get the exam and testing. Chances are it will not be cancer!

My doctor told me that I have CIN 4 cervical cancer. She has already done a LEEP and I believe that she said that she has got it all. However, she wants me to get a hysterectomy done. What should I do?

Not Cancer Yet. Cin 4 is carcinoma in situ, not yet invasive cancer. If you have completed your family, a hysterectomy is not an unreasonable option. You could have a cold knife conization to try and save your uterus if you are wanting more children, although, i would finish my family sooner than later. If you have a hysterectomy, keep your ovaries if possible, as you are very young. Read more...

Of the 5% of people who do have dysplasia after first having a Lletz and 1 year later a cone biopsy, how many will develop cervical cancer?

Depends on staging. If the procedures were done for CIN III also known as severe dysplasia or carcinoma in situ and it was eradicated TOTALLY by Pathology report then there are few recurrences of note. If the Lletz or LEEP procedure extended beyond the borders on the Pathology report or was invasive carcinoma then statistics are different entirely. Read more...
