What is Dysplasia?

If you break down the word.. Dys = Wrong / improper, while plasia = Growth. So the word can roughly be translated to improper growth. Dysplasia can be described as a change that a cell in your body undergoes when it is under alot of stress and it is reacting to that stress. These changes are NOT normal to the life cycle of that cell and can be a sign of diseases, most notably cancer.

Hello, this is a question I have found most confusing. What is the actual difference between dyskariyosis and dysplasia? I was told upon having my smear test that I have low grade dyskariyosis and also high risk HPV. After having the colposcopy done, they took 2 biopsies of which came back CIN1 with no further treatment needed. No mention of HPV in my pathology report? Is this normal? They chose to use the watchful waiting and referred me back in a years time. What are the chances of it progressing within the year? Is there more chance of it regressing even with high risk HPV? It s all so confusing. Thank you. Danielle
