What is cervical dysplasia?
Cervical dysplasia is defined as a precancerous condition in which abnormal cells grow on your cervix. Your cervix is the narrow portion located on the lower end of your uterus that connects your vagina and uterine cavity.
The cervix is divided into two parts: the endocervix and exocervix. While the former comprises the opening into your uterus, the latter protrudes into your vagina. Both the inner and outer portions are covered in different types of cells and meet in the “transformation zone.” This is where most cases of cervical dysplasia occur.
