Customer Question

Is cervical dysplasia c1n2 actually cancer? My daughter, 28, is going to have LEEP. Will she have trouble getting pregnant?

Hello,
CIN 2 is NOT cancer - as the 'bad' cells have NOT progressed below the basement membrane - so having a LEEP is a very good way of TREATING this. Also, if she smokes or uses any tobacco products she needs to stop. And, this will NOT have any effect on getting pregnant - however, this can possibly have some problems with cervical incompetance (such as having a miscarriage - but very unlikely), or even preterm labor - but again, very unlikely.

Is this an indicator of future cervical cancer? What would cause this?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 7 years ago.
Hello,
No, not an indication of future cervical cancer - HOWEVER, a LEEP is need to TREAT this, and if NOT treated, there is a high likelihood of progressing to cervical cancer - so the LEEP will prevent the cancer - however, she NEEDs close followup to ensure that all the 'bad' tissue was removed and she needs PAPs for the rest of her life to ensure she never gets cervical cancer - and cervical cancer is a STD 99% of the time - from HPV - Human Papilloma Virus (for example, Nuns do not get cervical cancer).
