I have recently been diagnosed with HPV and have been notified of a presence of squamos cells. I am to go in for a biopsy next week, and had a few questions that have me very concerned.
Since it is quite possible that i have had HPV for a long time, are the chances of it leaving on its own any time soon slim?
If it turns out that i do have to go in for the "LEEP" procedure to remove any cancerous cells in the cervix, will the HPV remain present? If so, does that not mean i will always be at high risk for developing cervical cancer? How many times can a "LEEP" be done?
What are the chances of the cervical cancer spreading? Do i need to be concerned about more serious problems in the future? (Hysterectomies, etc.)
