What is cervical dysplasia?

Cervical dysplasia (also known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia) is abnormal tissue growth in the cervix (the narrow, lower portion of the uterus).  The dysplasia may be discovered on an abnormal Pap smear or colposcopy.  Some types of cervical dysplasia can progress to cancer if not treated.
