Doctor's Notes on Cervical Dysplasia Stages, Symptoms, Treatments, and Surgery

Cervical dysplasia is a precancerous condition in women that appear in cells (cells appear abnormal) that compose the lining of the cervix. There are no signs and symptoms for this condition; it is recognized when a PAP smear is done during cancer screening.

Cervical dysplasia can be caused by infection of the cells with the human papilloma virus (HPV). It raises the risk to develop cancer. A vaccine against HPV is available to help prevent infections.
