Re: HPV and Hystorectomy

Not necessarily. How old are you? What other tests/biopsies have your doctor(s) run (repeated problematic paps, colposcopies, biopsies, etc)?

Re: HPV and Hystorectomy

I am 31. I had a leep 2 years ago due to CIN-2. My most recent Pap shows ASC-US and my doctor wanted to do another colposcopy. I am awaiting the results.

Re: HPV and Hystorectomy

Shay, doctors (and especially insurance companies) prefer attemping less invasive treatments before resorting to a hyst (for dysplasia).

I suggest that if you get another colposcopy to askyour doctor to also do an ECC (endocervical curettage). It scrapes the endocervical canal to see if there are any atypical cells hiding in there. The inner part of the canal cannot be sampled or seen during a pap or colposcopy. That was where my doctor found my cancer hiding (but it took another biopsy before it was diagnosed as cancer). I am a rare case, but the ECC can identify things that are more difficult to identify.

I hope that answers your question.
