        it would apply to in siti, which is stage 0, and probably not to Severe Dysplasia, which is not cancer.

         

        I haven't looked over on the main board yet, but if you haven't,  you should post this there, not here. This off topic board is rarely looked at by most folks, only a few of us still browse here.
