Cervical dysplasia refers to abnormal changes in the cells on the surface of the cervix.
Although these changes are not cancer, they can lead to cancer of the cervix if not treated.
Imiquimod is an immune response modifier. In mild cases of cervical dysplasia applying imiquimod topically has been shown to prevent these abnormal cells from developing into cancer cells.
