Q&A with Dr. Patrick

My pap returned showing dysplasia, what is this?

Dysplasia means abnormal cells.  Cervical dysplasia is NOT cancer.  Your doctor will likely recommend a colposcopy to evaluate your cervix.  A microscope is used to look for abnormal cells on the cervix.  A biopsy may be taken to confirm the diagnosis of dysplasia.  Depending on the biopsy results your doctor may recommend treatment or close follow-up with frequent pap smears.  It is unlikely you will have any long-term problems form this if you follow your doctors’ treatment plan.
