Mild Cervical Dysplasia
The term "dysplasia" is used to describe abnormal changes in the cells found on the surface of the cervix. Dysplasia may occur in three stages, mild, moderate and severe. By definition, mild dysplasia involves only having 25% of the thickness of the cell layer overlying the cervix. Moderate dysplasia involves having 50% of the cell layer. When severe dysplasia is diagnosed the abnormal cells involve almost the full thickness of the cell layer covering the cervix.

Cancerous cells are the most severe of the abnormal cells found on Pap tests. Carcinoma in situ involves the full thickness of the surface cells of the cervix. Invasive cancer of the cervix means that the disease has progressed beyond the surface layer of cells.

What causes dysplasia?
Dysplasia is caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV is sexually transmitted. It has been discovered that approximately 60% of sexually active college students acquire HPV at some point during college. HPV can cause genital warts, but fewer than 5% of women who are infected with the HPV will actually develop genital warts. The HPV can penetrate the cells of the cervix even if a woman has never had genital warts. The virus causes abnormal cell development on the cervix called dysplasia. Recent studies show that HPV can spontaneously disappear with time. Dysplasia can also spontaneously resolve with time. Women under the age of 21 tend to get over the infection and subsequent dysplasia quicker than older women. Smoking has been associated with an increased risk of the progression of dysplasia to cervical carcinoma.

Is dysplasia a serious risk to my health?
In most cases mild dysplasia will spontaneously revert to normal without treatment over a period of several years. In a few instances it will progress slowly to more advanced stages. In rare instances dysplasia may progress to cancer of the cervix.

Do I need immediate treatment for mild dysplasia?
Since mild dysplasia often reverts to normal without therapy, immediate treatment is seldom needed or recommended. If the mild dysplasia progresses to a more serious condition, the process typically takes many months and often years.

How should I follow up after a biopsy shows mild dysplasia?
For women under the age of 21 who have mild dysplasia for less than 2 years, a repeat pap smear every year is adequate. For women over the age of 21, follow-up depends on what the Pap smear showed prior to the cervical biopsy. Sometimes mild dysplasia is preceded by a pap showing a atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US), atypical squamous cells cannot rule out a high grade lesion (ASC-H), or a low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL). For these patients the recommendation is to repeat a test for high risk HPV in one year. If the HPV test is negative in one year, routine annual screening is recommended. Other times, mild dysplasia is preceded by a pap showing atypical glandular cells (AGC) or a high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HGSIL). For these women, the mild dysplasia on biopsy is followed by a Pap smear and colposcopy every 6 months for one year. If the results are negative at both visits, one can then return to routine annual screening.

Women are encouraged to discuss any concerns or questions regarding follow-up recommendations with their physician.

How can I help my body recover from this condition more quickly?
If you smoke cigarettes, stop! Smoking depresses the immune system, which is responsible for the healing process. Eating a healthy diet, limiting alcohol intake and getting 6-8 hours of sleep a night may also help boost the immune system. Consistent use of condoms lessens the risk of further exposure to the virus and protects the cervix from further irritation.
