cervical intraepithelial neoplasia

(SER-vih-kul IN-truh-eh-pih-THEE-lee-ul NEE-oh-PLAY-zhuh)

Abnormal cells are found on the surface of the cervix. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia is usually caused by certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) and is found when a cervical biopsy is done. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia is not cancer, but may become cancer and spread to nearby normal tissue. It is graded on a scale of 1 to 3, based on how abnormal the cells look under a microscope and how much of the cervical tissue is affected. For example, CIN 1 has slightly abnormal cells and is less likely to become cancer than CIN 2 or CIN 3. Also called CIN.

Pronunciation of dictionary term "neoplasia intraepitelial cervical"

Se encuentran células anormales en la superficie del cuello uterino. La neoplasia intraepitelial cervical es causada, a menudo, por ciertos tipos de virus del papiloma humano (VPH) y se encuentra al realizar una biopsia de cuello uterino. La neoplasia intraepitelial cervical no es cáncer, pero se puede volver cancerosa y diseminar al tejido normal cercano. Se evalúa en una escala de 1 a 3, con base en la apariencia de las células al microscopio y en el grado de compromiso del cuello uterino. Por ejemplo, la NIC 1 tiene células levemente anormales y es menos propensa a volverse cáncer que la NIC 2 o la NIC 3. También se llama NIC.
