Today I had my follow-up appointment about my Pap exam. It turns out that I have mild Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia. This is an abnormal growth of cells on the cervix. It is a little like pre-pre cancer cells. In this stage (CIN 1), it often goes away without treatment, so she suggested that I return in one to two years from the pap test. If at that point, it has stayed the same, she might want to do a colposcopy and biopsy. If it has progressed to moderate (CIN2) that she might want to loop electrosurgical excisional procedure.
