's Mary!

Welcome to Hystersisters and the Cancer Concern Forum! You should ask your doctor questions like this and what it means for you in particular, but the way I understand it is that HGSIL stands for High Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion. Around here we call it moderate to severe cervical dysplasia. This means that the cells in the "skin" of the cervix are abnormal. Endocervical refers to the area on the inside of the cervix. Dysplasia is a precancerous condition. The cone biopsy will give your doctor further information about the status of your cervical cells and will help him/her determine what is the best treatment for your case. In 80-90% of cases, a cone biopsy will be all the treatment that is needed. In the remainder of cases, the dysplasia will recur and further treatment (another cone, laser, or hysterectomy) will be indicated.

Good luck with your cone biopsy! Please feel free to continue to ask more questions, and make sure you let us know how things go with the cone!
