... Hi there!
First, I totally understand the feeling of panic you are having! I had several paps come back with HGSIL, with the words "favor neoplastic" after it, which meant it was likely caused by precancerous changes.
I had both squamous and glandular cell abnormalities at the same time. It was scary, but I had a cervical cone biopsy (which is similar to the LEEP) and it... (1 replies)
... I cried all night and then some the next day. I have a colposcopy on Monday and I'll probably have a biopsy done and I'm so. scared. I'm so scared of what the results are going to tell me. ... (1 replies)
... grade cell growth. I had a colposcopy done with biopsy and go back on Friday for results. Halfway through the biopsy on June 1st the Dr tells me then that she highly recommended a LEEP procedure. ... (0 replies)
... @blibbet, yes, the first step was a LEEP. I was unable to get clear margins, so I went on to have a large cone biopsy. That also could not get clear margins, so hysterectomy was the next step. I also had glandular dysplasia, which is more difficult to monitor and is more "sneaky".
If I could have avoided the hyst, I would have. Although I was done with kids, I have... (7 replies)

... Yes because hpv test was negative they left me. But been to see gp about mess with sling and asked her bout biopsy and she dosnt get the biopsy results apparently and ring the hospital. ... (3 replies)
... Sorry you are going through this. So they did not do a colposcopy in 2010 or 2012? I guess because HPV was negative and HPV causes most cervical cancers? I wonder if the TVT sling material (mesh?) can skew pathology / biopsy. I know it can wreak havoc in your body as it sounds like you are experiencing. Also, different pathologists have various levels of experience. So a... (3 replies)
... al with hpv test negative so docs done nothing Got called in a few weeks ago for another smear and it is abnormal and got sent to the clinic. The nurse took a biopsy and said nothing to worry about as didn't look high grade which i really understood and waited for result. ... (3 replies)

... I went thru the same conundrum in 1982. I was 22 and had just gotten married. I chose to go the route of the cone biopsy which resulted in clear margins. I had my first child in 1983 and my second in 1986 with normal full term pregnacies. ... (7 replies)
... Thank you for your answer! I am glad that you feel well now! How do you feel after the hysterectomy?
I will get my results this week, just before Christmas.... The strange thing is that they only found squamous cells with dysplasia on the ECC, but on the pap test AGC. Maybe they found more on the cone biopsy. (4 replies)
... Hi Jessica. I also had a cone biopsy after abnormal glandular cells were found in an ECC that suggested adenocarcinoma in situ. ... (4 replies)
... I am worried about my results from the laser cone biopsy that I did last week. Everything started out with AGC on the PAP test. After further investigations with biopsy they found CINIII in the cervical canal. I have also high risk HPV. ... (4 replies)
... cone biopsy, which ultimately was unsuccessful, and then a hysterectomy. Even though the cone didn't work for me, I don't regret having tried it at all. The cone biopsy surgery was relatively simple and the recovery time was quick. For me it was definitely worth the effort to at least try and avoid the hysterectomy. ... (7 replies)
... Yes its one of the high risk and this is my second time with High Grade. First time they did a LEEP. Went 6 months had another check and it was low grade so they did the cryo. Went 6 months and brings me to my latest which is a mix of high and low grade. He could not do a colposcopy because the opening of my cervix is like a pin point, so in order for him to get in to do a... (7 replies)
... I've always leaned toward the side of not wanting children, but deciding to not have them and have the choice taken away from you are two different things. Cone biopsy COULD take care of it, but it also could not and I would, once again, have to go through it all again and end up with the hysterectomy anyway. ... (7 replies)
