Re: How are the statistics that mild dysplasia will turn to severe dysplasia then can
Just want to share my story - I was diagnosed with CIN I almost exactly a year ago. However, I changed doctors a few months later and when my 6-month follow up pap came back abnormal again, the new doctor insisted on doing another colpo to "see for herself". Well, I'm glad she did, because she found four areas that came back as CIN III!!!! She would not say outright whether the CIN had progressed from CIN I to CIN III in a matter of months OR that the previous doctor had missed the more significant areas of dysplasia during my first colpo.
I truly believe that it was the later case due to two reasons: my paps were coming back consistently as ASC-H (before and after first biopsy) which points to the CIN III. Also, the first doctor was a total whack job.
I guess my advice is to keep on top of your follow ups. Even if a significant leision was missed during the colpo, cervical cancer usually progresses so slowly that a follow up test will catch it in time. Can I ask - what did your pap come back as? If it was ASC-H or HGSIL and your biopsy only showed CIN I, I would keep an even closer eye on it if I were you.
