Recommendation ID

The committee recommended that further research is needed to better understand the natural history of low-volume cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2 lesions.

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

It noted that this is not captured in the current versions of the natural history models for CIN and cervical cancer (see section 5.10), but is likely to become increasingly important for colposcopy services as HPV primary screening is rolled out and vaccinated groups enter the screening programme.
