You could find that your vagina and labia change as you get older and after you’ve delivered children vaginally. These changes may cause functional issues, or you may simply prefer a younger, tighter appearance. Vaginoplasty may be your answer.
Cervical dysplasia, also known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), is a medical condition which causes abnormal cell growth on the lining of the cervix (a neck-like passage that connects the vagina and uterus). Developing at any age in a woman's lifetime, cervical dysplasia is most often caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) (one of the most common types of sexually transmitted infections).
Considered precancerous, left untreated, cervical dysplasia can lead to cancer of the cervix. To schedule a consultation with a qualified healthcare provider in that can diagnose and treat your cervical dysplasia, call (408) 946-9453 or contact us online.
Typically, women do not experience cervical dysplasia symptoms; rather, the condition is most often discovered during a routine pap test. If women are experiencing symptoms in the vaginal region, it is most often due to an accompanying infection.
If your pap test reveals abnormalities, your healthcare may recommend further diagnostic tests to confirm a cervical dysplasia diagnosis such as:
Depending on the extent of abnormal cells in the cervix, your healthcare provider will diagnose you with 1 of 3 cervical dysplasia stages:
Treatment for cervical dysplasia will vary depending on the severity of your condition. Often, mild cervical dysplasia requires no treatment, as the condition can resolve itself. Your healthcare provider will likely recommend more frequent pap tests to monitor the abnormal cells.
If you are diagnosed with CIN 2 or CIN 3, or CIN 1 has persisted, your cervical dysplasia treatment may include:
Cervical dysplasia is estimated to affect up to 1 million women in the U.S. alone, particularly between the ages of 25 and 35. As an asymptomatic but potentially life-threatening condition, it is critical that all women undergo routine gynecological testing to detect the presence of abnormal cells in the cervix and to check for HPV. Your healthcare provider can also recommend preventative strategies such as the HPV vaccine and safe sex practices to reduce your risk of developing both HPV and cervical dysplasia.
