Talking Great news! and hope for others...

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my great news. I went last week to get a 6 month follow-up PAPS after being diagnosed with CIN 1 HPV positive. I just got the call from my doctor w/ results. I dreaded to answer the phone, thinking I would get bad news again, but this time the nurse told me that my PAP came back completely NORMAL!!! I was in shock at first, but then started jumping up and down because I didn't have to get another Biopsy! I was so excited that I had to post it for everyone out there looking for hope and a clear result. Thanks to all of you for your support and knowledge. - I am so greatful for a place like this when times are tough and you need someone to give you some encouraging words.

Re: Great news! and hope for others...

I was first diagnosed with CIN 1 about a year ago, my doctor decided to take the "wait and see" approach after my first biapsy showed up Cirvicitis. I went in after 6 months for another PAPs that showed CIN 1 - They did another biapsy which then confirmed CIN1. My doctor again decided to take the "wait and see" approach. I went in last week for my 6 month follow-up and just got my results yesterday which came back normal. I'm not sure if I still tested poss. for HPV. I never even thought to ask my doctor. I will ask today and update. Thanks!

Re: Great news! and hope for others...

I am curious, is this a slow growing thing because to me, waiting 6 months seems like a VERY long time to "wait and see" I would be hesterical and want something done right then and there but I am not educated on this too. If someone can explain why it is okay to wait for that long, I would appreciate the knowledge on it. Thanks!!!

Re: Great news! and hope for others...

CIN I is watched, because it typically clears up on it's own. (ETA: In fact, I've read some researchers believe it should actually be put in a separate category.) Doing some searches should make you feel better. Don't ever feel bad about asking your doctor for more information though.

I'm glad this did resolve, congrats WW!!!

Re: Great news! and hope for others...

Bimpin-

CIN I/Mild dysplasia/LGSIL is very early changes in your cervical cells. Most of the time it will clear up on it's own. Cervical Cancer may take MANY years to develope, so six months is a fairly small time frame for follow-up. It is the norm.
-Most doctor's won't put their patients through un-nessesary and sometimes painful treatment. Minor cervical cell changes may never progress and go away on their own about 50% to 60% of the time. It is unlikely that minor cell changes would progress to cancer in a short period of watchful waiting.
