I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

You should worry about low grade dyskaryosis only when there are high risk HPV found like 16, 18, and 31

Only these have risk of turning to cervical cancer.

I'm your case almost nil chances of developing cervical cancer

However, repeat smear every 6 months as you were doing before.
