'Possible' CIN, referred to MDT

Hi everyone,

I’ve been ‘on the radar’ since 2020 when I had my first abnormal smear and HPV+. Have had persistent HPV for 6 years now, can’t seem to shake it despite being a relatively healthy non smoker. Have heard it can be trickier to get rid of over 30.

I had a colposcopy a few weeks ago and left feeling reassured, she said she could hardly see any cell changes but she would biopsy to confirm so I could hopefully return to the regular cervical screening cycle. Had a letter today that said the biopsy shows ‘possible CIN in a tiny fragment’ and that it’s been referred to MDT to discuss future management. So now I feel way confused than I did previously and really anxious. If it’s not CIN, what is it? Surely if they thought it was benign they would have just told me to come back in 6 months/a year or something.

Don’t know how to feel! Anyone had anything similar?
