Hi there. THe good news is that just because you have HPV does NOT mean you have cancer. In fact, most people with HPV do NOT have cancer. WHat's more is that just because you have HPV AND Dysplasia still does not mean cancer. AND dysplasia usually goes through many stages before its becomes cancer. AND at each of those stages it is still treatable and usually successfully. So you can have both HPV and dysplasia and still not have cancer.
That said, it does mean you have to stay very active in your health care and follow up. Do NOT miss one appointment and don't be afraid to ask for appt's more often (i.e 3 mos instead of 6 mos). Now, I'm not sure how much information you've found but from what I've found following are the stages:
Normal= repeat pap in one year
ASCUS and HPV Neg- repeat pap in 3 mos if still ASCUS and HPV neg- repeat one year
ASCUS and HPV Pos- Repeat pap every 3-6 mos
CIN I- Repeat pap 6 mos possibly followed by colposcopy
CIN II- Treat via cryo, LEEp etc
CIN III- Treat
CIS= Carcinomal In Situ- Still not considered "Cancer"
So you can see there are quite a few stages of dysplasia before you're even at the low end (stage 1 ) of cancer. Many opportunities for your Dr. to catch and treat it.
From your post, it only says you are HPV positive with Dysplasia...you don't mention what grade. When you get the results from your biopsy, be sure to ask for a copy of your pathology report. It will tell everything.
I hope this helps and gives some sense of calm. Although having been on this roller coaster now for 8 mos, I know it can be difficult to keep your ool. Check the boards often. The women are great support during the wait!!
