Cervical dysplasia is a medical condition that occurs when abnormal cell growth occurs in the cervix. This condition affects women of all ages and is highly treatable if diagnosed early.
If you suspect you may have cervical dysplasia, it is important to see a gynaecologist for a diagnosis and to discuss potential treatment options.
Keep reading to learn more about cervical dysplasia, including its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options.
What is Cervical Dysplasia?
Cervical dysplasia develops when there’s an abnormal growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the cervix. Cervical dysplasia can range from mild to severe, and it’s classified based on the level of abnormal cell growth present. If left untreated, cervical dysplasia can cause cervical cancer.
Causes of Cervical Dysplasia
The most common cause of cervical dysplasia is an infection with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Other factors increasing one’s risk for cervical dysplasia include:
- Multiple sexual partners
- A history of sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
- Not getting regular Pap smears.
Symptoms of Cervical Dysplasia
It’s possible to have cervical dysplasia without experiencing any symptoms. However, some women may experience the following:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Abnormal vaginal discharge
- Pain during sexual intercourse
Diagnosis and Treatment of Cervical Dysplasia
Diagnosis of cervical dysplasia typically begins with a pelvic exam and a Pap smear. During these procedures, your healthcare provider checks for signs of abnormal cells and abnormal growth in the lining of the cervix.
If suspicious cells are detected, further testing, such as a colposcopy or biopsy, may be needed to determine the extent of the condition.
Treatment for cervical dysplasia is focused on removing any affected tissue and preventing progression to cervical cancer. Treatment options include:
- Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP): LEEP involves using an electric current to cut away and remove abnormal cells from the cervix.
- Cryosurgery: During this procedure, extremely cold temperatures are used to freeze and destroy abnormal cells in the cervix.
- Cone Biopsy: A cone biopsy procedure is performed under general anesthesia and involves the removal of a small sample of tissue from the cervix for analysis in a laboratory setting.
