What Causes Cervical Dysplasia?
In order to deal properly with cervical dysplasia we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.
We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow cervical dysplasia to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind cervical dysplasia consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to cervical dysplasia. Here are two possibilities:
- Human Papilloma Virus
- Cigarette Smoke Damage
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
recent heavy tobacco smoking
much secondhand smoke exposure
reduced sense of smell
human papilloma virus
smoking 6-20 cigarettes per day
recently quitting smoking
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of cervical dysplasia:
|Human Papilloma Virus
|Cigarette Smoke Damage
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.
In the Reproductive Symptoms
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about cervical dysplasia:
Cervical Dysplasia. Have irregular, but non-cancerous, cells been found on a Pap Smear? (Class 1 = Slightly abnormal, Class 2 = Abnormal, Class 3 = Severely abnormal. Class 4 would be cancer.)
→ Not applicable / they were cancerous / don't know
→ Abnormal cells in the past only - class 1 or 2
→ Very abnormal cells in the past only - class 3
→ Current abnormal cells - class 1 or 2
→ Current very abnormal cells - class 3
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate history of cervical dysplasia, history of severe cervical dysplasia, cervical dysplasia or severe cervical dysplasia, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as:
Cigarette Smoke Damage
Women who smoke may be 50% more likely than nonsmokers to develop cervical cancer or precancerous lesions.
