Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

If you have CIN3 it means you have carcinoma in situ- which means you have severe dysplasia that spans more than 2/3 of the epithelium, and may involve the full thickness

Dr. Natasha :

About 12% of people will progress to invasive cervical cancer

Dr. Natasha :

so you will need to get regular checks. Will you be ok? 88% yes

Dr. Natasha :

And cancer appears within the next 15 years, so make sure you get regular checks

Customer:

Dr. Natasha :

No, you do NOT have cancer

Dr. Natasha :

you have cervical changes, which is 12% of people will progress to cancer in 15 years
