Does CIN1 mean I have cancer?
CIN 1 is usually caused by infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) and is found when a cervical biopsy is done. CIN 1 is not cancer and usually goes away on its own without treatment, but sometimes it can become cancer and spread into nearby tissue.
What happens if you have CIN 2?
CIN 2 means two-thirds of the thickness of the cervical surface layer is affected by abnormal cells. There is a higher risk the abnormal cells will develop into cervical cancer. You may be offered treatment to stop this happening, or another colposcopy.
How long does it take for CIN1 to turn into CIN 2?
In general, it takes 10 to 20 years for CIN to progress to cancer, allowing a significant time period for detection and treatment. Progression from CIN to cancer requires persistent HPV infection.
What is the difference between CIN1 CIN 2 and CIN3?
Low-grade neoplasia (CIN 1) refers to dysplasia that involves about one-third of the thickness of the epithelium. CIN 2 refers to abnormal changes in about one-third to two-thirds of the epithelial layer. CIN 3 (the most severe form) describes a condition that affects more than two-thirds of the epithelium.
How quickly does CIN1 progress?
Overall, 82.1% of the women with CIN1 regressed within 2 years, while 1.5% progressed to a high-grade lesion within 3 years.
How serious is CIN1?
CIN 1 – it’s unlikely the cells will become cancerous and they may go away on their own; no treatment is needed and you’ll be invited for a cervical screening test in 12 months to check they’ve gone. CIN 2 – there’s a moderate chance the cells will become cancerous and treatment to remove them is usually recommended.
What is the treatment for CIN 1?
CIN 1 – it’s unlikely the cells will become cancerous and they may go away on their own; no treatment is needed and you’ll be invited for a cervical screening test in 12 months to check they’ve gone.
How do you get rid of CIN 1?
What is the best treatment for CIN 1?
The clinical management of women with CIN 1 lesions may take one of the following courses: (i) immediate treatment or (ii) follow the woman and then treat if the lesion is persistent or progressive after 18 to 24 months. All women with CIN 2 and CIN 3 lesions should be treated with cryotherapy or LEEP.
Will CIN 2 go away?
Right now, CIN2 is typically treated. But some studies have suggested that CIN2 lesions often regress completely without treatment and should therefore be simply monitored instead.
What is the best treatment for CIN 2?
laser or loop electrosurgical excision procedure (leeP) are the preferred treatment methods for recurrent CIN 2 and CIN 3 (sor: B, based on clinical trials without randomization).
