The dysplasia has covered most thickness of lining, but I didn't get a copy of the results, so now he is calling the OBGYN to do a cone (to ease my mind?) Anyone know if I am making a mountain of a molehill? I am a 16 yr smoker (Quit 150 days ago). Thanks Is this how the stages are?
They could just do a lletz, a leep, for which you will be awake, with CIN III I would have thought they wouldve done this anyway, to make sure that there are no more lesions where the CIN III was, I had CIN III in a biopsy but when I had leep I showed CIN I with clear margins, so was then deferred for 6 months for a check up colposcopy, depending on where the cells are coming from determines the treatment, if in cervix they can usually see problem areas and leep in that area.,,,, if it is in the endocervical canal, they cannot see but need to cut out areas, normally a leep or a cone, and can only determine 'treat and diagnose' with this procedure. With me I had in the canal, they did the leep first, then had colposcopy and more biopsies taken. Ask where the cells are, if they are in the canal (CGIN, glandular) or cervix (Squamous). x
