Cervical Dysplasia

What is Cervical Dysplasia?

Cervical dysplasia is an abnormality of the cells at the surface of the cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) and is often called the neck of the womb.

If you believe you have cervical dysplasia, please consult a doctor. Cervical dysplasia may be an indication or symptom of cancer. It can take 10 years or longer for cervical dysplasia to develop into cancer.

Cervical dysplasia can occur at any age once you start having sexual intercourse. It is more likely to occur in someone who has many sex partners or in someone who started having sex as a teenager.

Symptoms of Cervical Dysplasia

Cervical dysplasia does not cause symptoms. If symptoms are present, they are caused by an accompanying infection.

What causes Cervical Dysplasia?

One of the most common causes of cervical dysplasia is the human papilloma virus (HPV).

How serious is Cervical Dysplasia?

Cervical dysplasia is very serious. If left untreated, it can lead to cancer.

How is Cervical Dysplasia Diagnosed?

Cervical dysplasia is detected in a pap test or a colopscopy.

Treatment options for Cervical Dysplasia

There are several treatment options available for cervical dysplasia. The most common options are:

  1. Observation. Your doctor will observe the abnormal cells to see if they will disappear on their own.
  2. LEEP. Your doctor will perform the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure to remove abnormal tissue.
  3. Cryocautery. Your doctor will freeze the cervix to remove abnormal tissue.
  4. Laser Surgery. Your doctor will perform surgery to vaporize the abnormal tissue. In this procedure, little or no damage occurs to surrounding tissue.
