|CIN 2 (Moderate Dysplasia)|
In CIN 2, or moderate dysplasia around half of the epithelial layer is abnormal. It is less likely to regress back to normal on its own than CIN 1 (mild dysplasia), although it will do so 40-50% of the time. About 20-30% of the time, moderate dysplasia will progress to severe dysplasia, and about 20% of the time it will persist. Most physicians prefer to treat moderate dysplasia, although it is possible to wait and monitor it to see what the course will be.

1) Cryotherapy for small areas of dysplasia.
