What is the typical treatment for CIN I, mild dysplasia?

One doctor said he thinks he got it all during the biopsy and would retest in 4 months. His assosiate told me that he usually does surgery on women who have had children because he can be more aggresive. Also, why does it seem most here have the LEEP procedure done and not the laser ablation? From what I have read there are less complications with the laser treatment.

Mild dysplasia is normally monitored closely because your body can heal itself from mild dysplaysia. If it doesn't heal itself then I think most doctors perform cryosurgery (freezing of the cells). LEEP in normally done instead of laser ablation when moderate or severe dysplasia is present because with LEEP the cells can be sent to a lab to make sure it was all removed and it is cheaper.

Re: What is the typical treatment for CIN I, mild dysplasia?

There are several reasons that LEEP is used more often than laser. Firstly, laser is much more expensive than LEEP. It requires very expensive equipment and training that many offices do not have. Also, as lovethosecurls said, with laser all of the irregular tissue is destroyed, so it can't be sent to a pathology lab to be examined. The complication rates between the two are comparable.
