... Based on the interim normal paps since the abnormal one 5 years ago, it sounds like the abnormal cells and probably the HPV too resolved on their own. This is common in normal, healthy women especially younger ones. And your doctor is correct in saying that abnormal cells typically take many years (as many as 10) to develop into cancer. And most low grade lesions (CIN1 aka... (2 replies)

... If it's not getting any worse than atypical cells (ASCUS), I wouldn't start jumping to treatment unnecessarily. Dysplasia is tricky. Too little tx can be bad but overtreatment can have it's share of issues as well. Now, if you have an actual lesion (low-grade, moderate or severe--referred to as LGSIL, HGSIL or CIN II or CIN III), most times you DO need treatment. The... (2 replies)

... Hi wishingwell,
Yes, CIN 1 = LGSIL = mild dysplasia. It is common to NOT treat this as it has a higher likelihood of resolving on it's own. The guidelines that I have read usually recommend re-pap every six months and if it has not resolved in 18months to consider treating with LEEP or cryo or whatever the doctor feels is best. I do believe that if you have concerns... (5 replies)
... CIN1 is the same as LGSIL. Doctors usually choose to monitor a case of CIN1 rather than treat it because, often, it will reverse itself and get back to normal. So, I have to say that what your doctor is choosing to do is normal. ... (5 replies)
... I got my results today after my colp/biopsy. The doctor says It showed CIN1, but he does not want to do anything. He wants to do a repeat paps in 6 MONTHS. does this sound normal? What is the actual definition of CIN1. Is it the same as LGSIL? I am so confused and worried that I should get it taken care of. I am a smoker and scared that it will progress. I have made a promise... (5 replies)
... Sorry you're dealing with this! I've done a lot of research since having an unnecessary hysterectomy that turned my life upside down. Many abnormal paps and even HPV infections resolve on their own especially in young women such as you. It seems I read that HPV infections can take up to two years to go away. And HPV infections cause abnormal paps. Other rather harmless... (1 replies)

Here's my history: Last August 2008, I went for my regular exam. Aside from the typical UTI's and yeast infections, I've never had any problems.

I'm 33...married with 2 kiddos. 15 years ago I had some mildly abnormal paps that resolved on their own. Had 10+ years of normal paps. 3 years ago I had an ASCUS with a negative high risk HPV test so I was told to retest in 6 months. Since then I've had more ASCUS tests, a few normals, and one LGSIL. I've also had 3 colpos......1... (5 replies)
