Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
There is no specific treatment known for hypertrophied cervix. If you do not have a white discharge or your PAP smear is negative then there is nothing to worry.Otherwise chemical cauterisation can help you.

Hi Dr. Singh, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Cervical hypertrophy is nothing but the Uterine Cervical Dysplasia where in there is abnormal appearance of cells on the surface of the cervix. It is considered to be a precancerous condition. It is graded as
1.) Low Grade (Low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion)
2.) High-grade (High grade squamous intraepithelial lesion)
3.) Malignant (Cancerous).
Treatment depends on the degree of dysplasia.Mild Dysplasia may go on its own and will only need careful observation with repeat Pap smears every 3 - 6 months. Treatment is recommended, If the dysplastic changes last for more than 2 years.
The treament options include, Cryosurgery, LASER therapy, LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) or Cone Biopsy where abnormal tissue is excised surgically. Hysterectomy is also recommended in few women and the patient will need regular follow up every 3 to 6 months.

Good Luck.

Uterus shows a small nabothian cyst at the cervix. Endometrium with a double wall thickness of 9 mm with no endometrial fluid collection or discrete mass. 2. Left ovary apparently has been removed. Prominent pelvic vasculature on the left suggesting pelvic congestion. 3. The right ovary appears to be lobulated or bilobed and measures up to 4.1 cm. There is a simple 7 mm cystic area at the inferior margin of this. The right ovary appears more lobulated than what was seen before. I would suggest close followup with ultrasound in 3-4 months as it is possible that there is a nodular density adjacent to the right ovary as opposed to the ovary appearing bilobed. An endometrioma could have this appearance. Close followup is warranted. No evidence for ovarian torsion on the right. I am 49 years and in overall good health, low BMI and non smoker.

I am getting a uterine biopsy soon and have a very low tolerance for pain. I have never had children and my cervix is tight. I am 59 years old. I was give Cytotec to take the night before. I understand this can cause severe cramping. When I did get my period before menopause the cramps were severe - I had to take heavy doses of Advil 5 days BEFORE it started and then Darvon on the first 2 days. I thought for the biopsy I would take Mobic 5 days before and then Percocet a hour before the biopsy ( I have discussed this with my dr.) Any other suggestions? I am a wreck! Thank you!
