Pap Smear Classification

A pap smear classification of cin 1,2, or 3 will often warrant cryosurgery or a cone biopsy, verruca and other infections aren't in these classifications. There can be a great deal of confusion is results of this test. It is simple to think of this test as showing the following: normal or irritation; normal, but with minor changes (ASCUS, LGSIL); precancerous changes; cancer. Sometimes the results are graded from 1 (normal) to 5 (cancer). A pap smear classification of cin 1,2, or 3 will often warrant cryosurgery or a cone biopsy, verruca and other infections aren't in these classifications.

Pap Smear Classification

  -  

Cryosurgery, Verruca

Disordered growth of the cells on the cervix is called dysplasia (CIN). In mild dysplasia (CIN 1) only a few cells are abnormal. Moderate dysplasia (CIN 2) involves about a half of the cells; severe dysplasia (CIN 3 or carcinoma in situ) is cancer. A pap smear classification of cin 1,2, or 3 will often warrant cryosurgery or a cone biopsy, verruca and other infections aren't in these classifications.
