Biopsy shows C1N1. Cervix has small, whitish spot. Should we go for surgery?

My fiance has just had a second biopsy & been been told that she has C1N1 three months after an initial biopsy showed signs of potential C1N1. 3 months ago she was also told that she had HPV & we have both taken drugs to reduce the effects of HPV. It seems as though the cells are getting worse and their are a few different thoughts on the way forward, especially as the doctor has admitted that to the eye the Cervix looks very healthy except for a very small, slight whitish spot? Is it a good idea to plow straight in with a procedure to remove the areas of concern or are there other options?

CIN 1 can be monitored but only upto a point. If there cervix appears healthy then monitoring is possible. Newer procedures like LLTEZ, cone biopsy, cryotherapy etc are all useful forms of treatment. If the colposcopy shows that there is a progression of dysplasia, then one of these procedures can be done.
