Abnormal tissue development

Question: dysplasia? i was told today that i have dysplasia. my dr. said that she had already told me this, but i do not recall her ever mentioning this. she told me that it is now more mild than it once was about 6 months ago. she also mentioned something about an ascus? i'm not too sure what that is either. i was diagnosed with hpv also when i went and got this check up that apparently showed i have dysplasia. i would just like some information about this, can anyone explain to me what the dysplasia and also what an ascus is? thanks.

Answer: Most laboratories in the United States use a standard set of terms called the Bethesda System to report test results. Under the Bethesda System, Pap test samples that have no cell abnormalities are reported as "negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy." Samples with cell abnormalities are divided into the following categories: ASC—atypical squamous cells. Squamous cells are the thin flat cells that form the surface of the cervix. The Bethesda System divides this category into two groups: 1.ASC–US—atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance. The squamous cells do not appear completely normal, but doctors are uncertain about what the cell changes mean. Sometimes the changes are related to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (see Question 13). ACS–US are considered mild abnormalities.… This link will help you understand cell changes (dysplasia)… Learning more about your HPV infection will help you communicate better with your doctor… Knowledge is power! I wish you well.
