Abbreviations?!

Hello,
This is a new world for me, having been told in the last month that I have cervical cancer. Very happy to find a forum for questions, responses, like-minded fellows, reassurance....
BUT - is there anywhere here a guide to all the abbreviations?! Everyone has a signature with their story. I'm just at the beginning of a hopefully short cancer journey, and I have loved reading some of the supportive posts here......but what do all the letters mean please?

Hi Izzzy76! CGIN and NED please!

Hi Mel, cgin is the glandular version of cin and stands for cervical glandular intraepithelial neoplasia. Ned I believe stands for no evidence of disease x

Ned is what we all want, no evidence of disease

 

Welcome here,  I hope you will find support and comfort from all the lovely ladies here
