Answer

The location, size, or extent of the lesion and the potential for malignant transformation largely dictate treatment. Uncomplicated lesions can be treated with chemical ablation, cryoablation, surgical excision, or laser treatment. Treatment options for cervical neoplasia depend on the stage of the disease.
