CIN 1, 2 and 3 Curious

Hi all,

I’ve just received my letter back after my Loop Excision 3 weeks ago. My initial letter had stated severe cell changes and HPV. The nurse said it was just a small area and confirmed CIN 2 and 3 at the appointment. This letter says I had CIN 1, 2 and 3 and tells me that I just need to go for a smear test of clear in 6 months with my GP.

I was just wondering if anyone else had had all 3 CIN grades at the same time.

From my limited knowledge i suppose any one could have cells with different stages of change but should they not stage as CIN3 if you have all three?
