What's the DX?

I'm scheduled for a TAH in a couple of weeks. I had an abnormal pap a year ago. They did a colposcopy?? which didn't show anything. Then did a cone biopsy. The dr said they had to really look to find something in that, but the next pap came back abnormal. He told me the cone showed Grade 1 dysplasia, but the last pap showed Hi grade. He said it wasn't a cancer, but he thought I should consider a hysterectomy since I've already had the cone. I'm 55 and post menopausal. I agreed to having the ovaries removed also. This was in Sept and he agreed that I could wait until Jan. I got the order for the Pre-Admission testing and it says the admission dx is hi grade cervical intraepitelial neoplasia. Now I wonder what neoplasia is. Does anyone know? My doctor is very well respected and has always encouraged questions and discussion. He's on vacation this week.

From my medical dictionary...

Neoplasia is a medical term for tumor formation, characterized by a progressive, abnormal multiplication of cells. This term does not necessarily imply that the new growth is malignant; benign tumors also develop as a result of neoplasia.
Hope that helps you out!
