On March 21, 2013, ASCCP released the new 2012 consensus guidelines for management of abnormal cervical cancer screening tests and CIN/AIS.  These guidelines comprehensively revise management strategies with clear algorithms. The new guidelines recommend more conservative management for women 21-24 years of age and provide guidance on co-testing. They build on past guidelines but incorporate data on risk from almost 1.4 million women screened with the Kaiser Permanente Northern California group, allowing for more refined management. Dr. L. Stewart Massad co-authored the 2001 and 2006 ASCCP guidelines and was the chair and meeting author for the most recent updates. His presentation will provide an overview of the updated consensus guidelines and scientific review.

Dr. Massad is a professor in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. His career has focused on cervical cancer prevention, and he has also worked on assessing relationships between HIV-induced immunosuppression and cervical cancer and cancer precursors.

Dr. Massad received his medical degree from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina where he also completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology. He trained in internal medicine at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York and completed a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Massad earned his Bachelor of Arts at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
