Hello Danielle, I understand your concern. To answer your first question, the difference between dyskariosis and dysplasia can be comparable, somehow, to difference between quality and quantity, in that, dyskariosis basically means changes in the nucleus of the cells, whereas dysplasia is increase in the number of cells. CIN1, which stands for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, practically means that only one third of the cervical cells have dysplasia, or are abnormal. Furthermore, the cells in CIN1 are not nearly as abnormal looking as in moderate (CIN2) or severe (CIN3) dysplasia. Approximately, one in six women develop CIN1, which does not require any treatment and will usually disappear on its own. So watchful waiting and follow up is the routine and the sensible thing to do. A one time positive HPV test does not necessarily mean you will get cervical cancer. In most cases, the body will fight off the high risk HP virus in one or two years. And even if it develops into cancer, it takes from 10 to 30 years for the high risk HPV to develop into a small tumor. There are certain factors, which, if exposed to, will increase the probability of CIN1 evolving to further stages, factors such as infection with Chlamydia or HSV2 (herpes simplex virus 2), a first degree relative (mother or sister) with a history of cervical cancer, smoking, low levels of folic acid and a weak immune system. I hope this answers your questions. Wishing you good health and all the best.
