  3. In the cervix, what is SCC associated with?
    What is Adenocarcinoma associated with?

    How is CIN graded?what is it associated with?
    • -HPV 18

    -graded on how far it moves up in the epithelium. CIN III all the way through. Associated with either HPV6,11 or 16,18 depending on the grade.

    • Cervical Cancer
    • Radiation/chemotherapy AND Surgical
  13. what are the ages for the HPV vaccine?
    do we test for low risk HPV? Why?
    • Recommendations (ACIP)
    • -Young as 9 years old
