... Hi there!
First, I totally understand the feeling of panic you are having! I had several paps come back with HGSIL, with the words "favor neoplastic" after it, which meant it was likely caused by precancerous changes.
I had both squamous and glandular cell abnormalities at the same time. It was scary, but I had a cervical cone biopsy (which is similar to the LEEP) and it... (1 replies)
... I cried all night and then some the next day. I have a colposcopy on Monday and I'll probably have a biopsy done and I'm so. scared. I'm so scared of what the results are going to tell me. ... (1 replies)

... Hello everyone. I'm new at posting on this board. I had a biopsy done on my cervix and received a message this evening from the doctor. She said it's after hours. ... (3 replies)
... @blibbet, yes, the first step was a LEEP. I was unable to get clear margins, so I went on to have a large cone biopsy. That also could not get clear margins, so hysterectomy was the next step. I also had glandular dysplasia, which is more difficult to monitor and is more "sneaky".
If I could have avoided the hyst, I would have. Although I was done with kids, I have... (7 replies)
... Yesterday I got word that my Pap smear showed Abnormal endocervical glandular cells. I am scheduled for a biopsy and colposcopy next Tuesday. Of course, I'm scared to death when I read the Internet and see that AgC is rare and usually indicative of cancer. ... (5 replies)
... I agree with STLouisgal. This sounds more likely to be precancer, and it is quite common and there are many ways to remove those cells. I hope when you finally talk to your doc you tell her that that's a terrible way to leave a message on someone's machine!
I'm so sorry for all the grief that has found its way into your life recently. Sending lots of supportive thoughts... (3 replies)
... I know sometimes our minds go to the worst case scenario which causes even more stress and angst. And it is no wonder your mind is taking you in this direction with all you have been through with your family members. I am sorry for that!

... rsed my dysplasia and my last pap showed no abnormality. I'm still awaiting my virology report.. Point is don't stress out until you have all the pieces. If a biopsy is taken during colposcopy, wait and see what the results say. But until then do your own research, find what options are out there that best fit you. ... (2 replies)

... Sorry you are going through this. So they did not do a colposcopy in 2010 or 2012? I guess because HPV was negative and HPV causes most cervical cancers? I wonder if the TVT sling material (mesh?) can skew pathology / biopsy. I know it can wreak havoc in your body as it sounds like you are experiencing. Also, different pathologists have various levels of experience. So a... (3 replies)

... Thank you for your answer! I am glad that you feel well now! How do you feel after the hysterectomy?
I will get my results this week, just before Christmas.... The strange thing is that they only found squamous cells with dysplasia on the ECC, but on the pap test AGC. Maybe they found more on the cone biopsy. (4 replies)

... I am worried about my results from the laser cone biopsy that I did last week. Everything started out with AGC on the PAP test. After further investigations with biopsy they found CINIII in the cervical canal. I have also high risk HPV. ... (4 replies)
... cone biopsy, which ultimately was unsuccessful, and then a hysterectomy. Even though the cone didn't work for me, I don't regret having tried it at all. The cone biopsy surgery was relatively simple and the recovery time was quick. For me it was definitely worth the effort to at least try and avoid the hysterectomy. ... (7 replies)
