Cervical Dysplasia

Cervical Dysplasia

Dysplasia is another name for abnormal cells. Cervical dysplasia means the cells on the top of your cervix are not normal. The cervix is a part of your uterus that opens at the top of the vagina. Abnormal cells do not mean you have cancer, but the cells may lead to cancer if you do not have proper care. The abnormal cells are most often caused by human papillomavirus or HPV. The cells may also be grouped as: Low-grade (LSIL), CIN 1 or mild dysplasia High-grade (HSIL), CIN 2 or moderate dysplasia Possibly cancerous (malignant), CIN 3 or severe dysplasia to carcinoma in situ
