Ask the Doctor

Question:
I have been diagnosed with cervical erosion. The doctor recommended cryosurgery or treating it with lazer. She said it is best not have a baby for 1-2 years after such a surgery. I have not decided yet on whether I want to have a baby in the next 1-2 years, so I'm not really sure if it should treat it just live with it. I have read an Internet medical site that cervical erosion sometimes does not even need to be treated. Is it true? Or if it does need to be treated, how long can a person wait? And what is better: cryosurgery or lazer? For the record: I am 26 years old and the disease, according to my doctor, is not at advanced stage.

Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that the "ask the doctor' service is an advisory service not a diagnostic service. The decision in this case absolutely rests on the histology (= tissue diagnosis) of the smear taken when the erosion was diagnosed and with the histology of the subsequent colposcopy and biopsy which - on the information below - should be the next step if not already done. The answer you need is from a specialist gynecologist. You certainly should not 'just live with it' - it does need treatment. We think you'll find that if you discuss this with your doctor that will be emphatically his/her advice. These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician
