Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board


Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


I had a hysterectomy to help treat recurrent dysplasia. I had CIN III that was treated but came back as well as other gynecological issues. I am wondering if there is a correlation between squamous cell carcinoma on the cervix and skin? Also what are the chances of the dysplasia going into the bladder and not being deteced? Is your risk for other cancers increased? Thanks :)
What kind of bladder problems are you having? Because I have read that having HPV causes recurrent bladder infections & if you had CIN III, you have had HPV, and may still have.
Oh when I say dysplasia in other parts of the body I mean other precancers not cervical dysplasia. Just like some people get recurrent cancer of other types is it possible to have dysplasia of other types or be prone to growing them? Thanks

This is a complicated question but I'll answer to the best of my ability.

Dysplasia is kind of a broad term which basically means "abnormal but non-cancerous or pre-cancerous cells." Dysplasia of the cervix forms on the epithelial cells of the cervix. Epithelial cells are the cells that line surfaces of the body. And yes, abnormal or pre-cancerous cellular changes can occur on epithelial tissue elsewhere in the body. For example, these changes could happen in the colon, or in the esophagus. In fact, esophageal dysplasia can be checked for during an endoscopy in much the same way that cervical dysplasia is (and it must be treated before becoming cancer).

Being prone to cervical dysplasia wouldn't indicate that you are prone to other dysplasias, because all dysplasias are caused by different things. Esophageal dysplasia is often caused by acidic foods and severe heartburn, whereas cervical is caused by HPV and so on. However, similar factors could encourage the growth of all types: smoking, for example, would encourage abnormal cells to grow in many places of the body.
