Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Almost 30 - 50 percentage cases of severe cervical dysplasia progress to XXXXXXX invasive cervical carcinoma.
With moderate dysplasia that risk might be slightly lower.
So those are the odds you are looking at.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.

The pathology report reads:
Final diagnose
A. Leep conization of cervix:
1. HPV effect with moderate dysplasia (CIN 2) focally extending to endocervical and exocervical margins of conization.
2. Chronic cervicitis
B. Leep cone 2- endocervical mucosa showing no pathological change.

Can you interpret?? Thank you

Yes the biopsy confirms moderate dysplasia.
