My answer is....you've never known. CIN3 is still possible. (I have CIN3, HPV negative on the most recent pap)
I also read some article saying " CIN1 to CIN2" changes are not very clear on the pathology finding.....what they said is even though your biopsy report saying you have CIN3, you may actually have CIN1 or 2....or the other way around.
I had colop/biopsy done by the end of Oct last year, the result is LGSIL
(what a relief....but...look what's coming the next...)
1/21/08 pap, the result is HGSIL (CIN2), HPV negative
3/21/08 leep, CIN3.
They said from CIN1 to progress to cancer is a long process (takes years).....but in my case, CIN1 to CIN2 not even in 3 months, another 2 months -CIN3.
Is there anyone who can explain how the pathologist differetial from CIN1 to CIN3? Do they have cell counts or they just see by their eyes under micro (of course)?
Dear mommyandwifey, I hope I didn't scare you too much
, but get a good gyno and close monitor your "cell changes"
.....hey, when did you have your latest pregnancy?(it plays a role in my case)....,eat healthy/ plenty of sleep (spend too much endless nights of this topic will not help your immune sys)
