Cervical dysplasia is the abnormal growth of cells on a woman’s cervix. There are no signs. It may be found during pap smear. It may lead to cervical cancer without medical care.
It is caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI) called the human papillomavirus (HPV). A shot can stop this infection. Safe sex and not smoking can also lower the risk.
Some changes may just need to be watched. Other changes may need to be treated with drugs or surgery to kill the cells.
Some people look to natural treatments to prevent cervical dysplasia.
