Explanation Of Cervical Precancer?
Good afternoon? Please provide information about the cervical precancer.
Hello Fanes, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Cervical precancerous lesions are defined as changes in cervical cells to become abnormal, but these changes have not shown signs of malignancy (cancer). Precancerous lesions are not cancerous and do not directly threaten health, however, if the examination reveals precancerous lesions, they have the potential to turn into cancer.
Precancerous lesions themselves can be classified using the CIN system (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia). CIN can be divided into 3:
CIN1 or low grade lesions. In CIN1 there were changes in cervical cells which were still small and insignificant. At this stage, monitoring alone can be done and special therapy may be recommended to exclude the CIN1 lesion. CIN2 or moderate grade lesions. In CIN2 there have been changes in cells that are more numerous and broader than CIN1 and usually a therapy to remove these abnormal cells will be required. CIN3 or severe lesions. In CIN3, the changes are very broad, exceeding 2/3 the thickness of the cervix. In this case also necessary removal of abnormal cells.
To be able to find out the degree of your precancerous lesions, it's a good idea to discuss it again with the doctor who examined and treated you, as well as asking about available therapies and suitable for your condition.
