CIN3 and Lletz treatment

I have been diagnosed as having CIN3 that needs further treatment called Lletz. The specialist assurs me that there is nothing serious or any evidence of cancer on the cervix. I had my smears and biopsys 2 weeks ago i am still losing blood and discharge from this I am worried because I am not due to have the above procedure until October is this to long to wait. It is really getting to me as I have a young child and am unsure of what all of this means.Can anyone help me understand better??

CIN 3 is diagnosed when there have been found cervical cells that are severely changed or cells that have features of cancerous cells.
Sometimes, CIN 3 is called carcinoma in situ or "at place", meaning that the cancerous looking cells are still contained within the layers of cervical mucosa, and if they spread through the deepest layer of mucusa, spreading into the tissue underneath, it will become a true cancer.
You need treatment as soon as possible, and the prognosis is good, since the removal of affected area means preventing a cervical cancer.
In most of the cases of CIN 3, treatment is needed just once.
LLETZ (Large loop excision of the transformation zone) is the most common treatment for removing abnormal cells from the cervix. It is sometimes called LEEP (loop electro-surgical excision procedure). It takes about 5 to 10 minutes and is usually done under local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure.

Best wishes!

I had mine 3 weeks ago. I went back to the doctor this morning as was still experiencing discharge. She found that I had a significant infection to which I am now on 2 courses on anti-biotics.

Don't hesitate to see a doctor for these kind of symptoms.

Why so long to wait?
My daughter moved from England to Wales to live with me a year ago at the age of 21 and was called for a routine smear test. She was diagnosed with CIN3, which was a massive shock. Her biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and she had laser treatment soon after. She has to wait 6 months for a check - it will be the longest wait of our lives! Why such a long wait and why on earth are women in England not checked until they are 25? Thank goodness my daughter moved to Wales!

In young girls, abnormalities heal without any treatment, especially in monogamous relationship and with constant use of condoms. All your daughter needed was a healthy lifestyle: healthy diet, strong immunity, no stress and plenty of rest. If your daughter was still in England, she would have avoided the pain of treatments, would still had her cervix intact and wouldn't need to face complications in her pregnancies in the future caused by the "treatments". In the countries/states where the medical system is obsessed with pap smears women are misled to believe that their lives have been saved, while in fact they are harmed for no benefit.

I just had a lletz today under general for cin 3. im 33 years old.
suzy5,I find it irresponsible to say these procedures are unnecessary for younger than 25's. cancer strikes at any age, breast, ovarian and cervical (the latter 2 should be checked immediately if you have sexual contact at ANY age - consential or otherwise! )
I also suffered with extreme endometriosis which was debilitating physically, emotionally and mentally, especially because certain doctors said it was just period pain, which clearly was not... this I suffered from since my first period at 13 and diagnosed at 25 only because they thought my appendix was about to burst, I was actually ovulating and the endometriosis was causing this pain, even morphine wasn't helping.
I think if you generally want to live, having preventative surgery to get rid of CANCER cells, which is what cin 3 is, get it removed! also with endometriosis, id rather have those endometriomas removed than been in constant pain because your womb, ovaries and bowel are all stuck together. .. just some reality

therefor have to attent colposcopy 6 months later.. i went for this last week and was told that a small white area has returned
however they are not sure if this is the HPV virus or whether its abnormal cells. I had a biopsy done and am waiting on the
results. I am very scared about this.. i dont have any children and wanted to try for a baby this year, i am scared that its

LLETZ
Hi everyone thanks for your posts on here.
It is really comforting to hear other stories. i am 35 About two weeks ago I had a LLETZ as they found i was at CIN3 pre-cancerous cells on my cervix. High risk HPV.

Right now i am feeling emotional as i have started bleeding but it is like an on off bleeding and not like period. the blood has been getting heavier but is not heavy enough to be a period. Before this i had heavy discharge and that smelt not very nice.

I have not been checked for a infection as the NHS help line (as it was a weekend) told me that unless i feel feverish and pain it probably is not an infection.

I feel a little dizzy and achy and my hips have been aching since. May go to docs and get checked on monday just incase.

I have read your stories and i want to wish you all the best with what you are going through. I am practicing mindfulness and relaxation to help my mind stay unworried as this surely will not help.

I send you all loving possitive energy.
warm wishes
kerry
