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 dont usually wear tampons but wore one yesterday. When I took it out last last I felt a dull pain when urinating. This morning I went to urinate and felt the same pain. There is no urge to urininate any more than normal or a feeling of not emptying my bladder. Could this be the beginning stages of a UTI or problems from the tampon. I dont find them to be very easy to come out once they're in. My cervix sits very far back.

hi, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex back in august. Im still bleeding every month but i dont have clots or cramps and i used to have horrible cramps. I've gained 13lbs but i really don't look pregnant and everyday i feel flutters in my lower abdomen but im not sure if it's just my nerves twiching, my feet swell,i get leg cramps, and sometimes pain in my lower abdomen there are also times when my cervix hurts a little, and i have tons of vaginal discharge.I have taken numerous hpt's all negative and i've been to the doctor's twice once for a urine test and once for a blood pg test when i would have been 8weeks all negative i asked for an ultrasound but was told i could not have one since my results were negative. i do not have health insurance so i have to pay for my doctor's vists out of pocket. Im a little hesitant about having another blood test since the first was negative and it costs me $150. i would currently be 23 weeks if i am pregnant. i have been taking prenatal vitamins just in case. I would be grateful for any advice
