... Just wondering if anybody else has had a similar experience.
I am currently 45 and have been having annual paps since I was 18, which were always normal. In 2006 at 38, I had a mildly abnormal pap determined to be ASCUS after a colposcopy and a biopsy (benign). I had paps every 6 mos for two years and they were all clear and have been since. This year I went in late... (1 replies)
... Hi there, how are you doing now? I had what the report says "LEEP Conization" under anethesia for CIN3 last August 2012 (ECC said CIN3 fragments and all three biopsies said CIN3) and since the procedure I have now had two clean paps but the Dr says there is a lot of scar tissue there. No ECC has been done due to scar tissue and that the colposcopy was normal.
Hope you are... (1 replies)

... I had CIN III and they also called it carcinoma in situ and this was almost 30 years ago......treated with cryosurgery in the doctors office and haven't had a problem since. Don't go thru all that other stuff, all you really need is cryosurgery.....honest. If they're not offering it to you, find another doctor that will. That's how strongly I feel about it. (12 replies)
... Just as a matter of interest what level of CIN did you have for this procedure , Cryotherapy is used to treat abnormal cervical cells (CIN) by destroying the affected area so that normal cells can grow back in their place. It has a slightly lower success rate than the other treatments for abnormal cervical cells and so it is less commonly used, particularly for CIN3. (12 replies)

... First, I would liked to thank everyone who has posted on this message board. You have given us much more information than we have ever received from any of the gynecologists that have treated my daughter for CIN1 to a more recent diagnosis of CIN3 (no clear margins) preceded by several pap smears, colposcopy, 2 ECC, and a Leep procedure. We are waiting (and fighting) for... (0 replies)

... Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time. CIN3 is not cancer but precancer (highest grade before actual invasive cancer). I, like you, was told that one or two laser ablations should take care of the recurrent VIN3 (vulvar lesions) I had and this wasnt the case either. That was 22 years ago and I am still dealing with HPV which has affected everything from the vulva,... (2 replies)
... so I've had 2 leeps, with clear margins, and I still have cin3, high grade cells. I have to get another leep soon...how is this happening? Oncologist told me that it is not cancer, nor will it be anytime soon, but I'm so confused. If 1-2 leeps cures 90% of cases, then where does that leave me? An advice/help is greatly appreciated. Thanks (2 replies)
