Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Borderline means that cell changes were found on your cervix. This usually does not mean that you have cervical cancer. Abnormal changes on your cervix are likely caused by HPV. It just means they need to follow you

Is something that I have to worry about ? How I have to be back to normal ?
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

HPV is the virus that causes cervical cancer.

First, it's essential to know that most people who have sex will be exposed to HPV at some point, and having HPV does not mean you will definitely get cancer. For most people, HPV infection goes away on its own. But for some people, it does not. Long-lasting HPV infection increases your risk of cancer over time.

I am worry about the bordeline change , soo this is not a cancer yet ?
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Yes it is not but they need to follow you up to see it is not developing. As I said  for most people, HPV infection goes away on its own. But for some people, it does not. Long-lasting HPV infection increases your risk of cancer over time.

I have this for 2 years , In how many years normaly get in to a cancer or precancer ?
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

You cannot predict it.

Finding high risk HPV early means you should be monitored for abnormal cell changes. Abnormal changes can be treated so they do not get a chance to turn into cervical cancer. So do attend the follow up appointments
