Has anyone been diagnosed with this? My drs. office told me I had both Mild Dysplasia and Severe. I had two biopsies taken two weeks ago and one came back mild (CIN 1) and the other severe (CIN 3).

I have to have a LEEP procedure in October to remove the cells that are CIN 3. The nurse said that they are pre-cancerous and if we dont remove them they could turn into cancer.

Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone had the LEEP procedure? I am nervous and scared and trying not to think too much about it but cant help it.

I am still waiting on the dr to call me so I can set up an appointment for me and DH to go in and talk to her. I have a list full of questions and I plan on getting answers to every one of them.


Anyway, I just wondered if anyone here had experienced this.

Thanks alot!
Casey

I had moderate dysplasia 10 years ago when i was 22. I had a biopsy followed by cryotherapy. I haven't had a bad pap since. Be sure to ask the Dr about the risks assoc with LEEP - it can increase the risk of incompetent cervix with future pregnancies.

I had an abnormal pap back in December, but was told that MOST women with my results have the cells go back to normal after giving birth. I was pregnant then btw. I m/c in February and have been afraid to get any more tests done for the abnormal pap. I just m/c again at 6 wks. I've been wondering whether my pg symptoms could have been a cervical problem from the abnormal cells. Is it possible 6 months after an abnormal pap to have nausea, "the runs", frequent urination, and pelvic pain with no bleeding? My dr also took a sample of the "discharge" when she was checking my cervix to see if I was miscarrying this last time. She thought there was a lot, but got a negative result for an infection. Now I've been starting to read up on abnormal paps and cervical cancer and such and I'm worried. What has your dr told you about the cells? Your further along in the testing process and I would love to get your advice/thoughts.

After giving birth to my son, I had a routine pap and all came back well. I went in a year later for my annual appointment and my pap revealed that I had severe cervical dysplasia (CIN3). After several site biopsies, my dr decided to perform a Cone Biopsy, a very intrusive and extreme procedure to remove the cells. The cone biopsy revealed that my dysplasia had become cancerous. Stage 1A1. It was as mild as it goes, but still cancer.

Since then, I've had two follow-up paps/colposcopy. The first came back clean, but only because I hadn't been fully healed. I just had my second follow-up and am awaiting the results. Praying that the results are clean.

To sum it all up . . . despite the fact that I was having regular check-ups, my cancer grew in a years time. The leading cause of cervical dysplasia and cancer is the sexually transmitted disease HPV. Most people don't even know that they have it. I had no idea. Unfortunately, I carry a very agressive strain, I suppose.

I hope that your doctors are proactive and are able to give you the care that you need.

Good Luck!
