... Can we really know why it came back? Can't say I did anything in particular to keep my immune system strong.

... I had AIS diagnosed by CKC, with clear margins and close follow up for 10 years (and 2 kids) before I had an abnormal AGUS pap again. Then I opted for hysterectomy (2.5 yrs ago), which revealed AIS again. I'm still a little paranoid it will show up again, even though I'm missing critical parts, and they tell me its pretty unlikely (though from what I've read, not impossible).... (3 replies)

... Hi, k2539. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with all this.
I'm hoping that your colposcopy will show that further treatment is not needed, but if that is not the case I strongly encourage you to get a second opinion before you make any decisions. If possible you should consult with a gyn oncologist, as they are the experts in cancer and pre-cancer.

... I'm so sorry to hear what a hard time you've been having. It is possible to have cervical cancer that is not obvious visually, but there are certainly other possible reasons for cervical bleeding. I'm glad you had the pap and it sounds like your gyn has plans for an endometrial biopsy, which is a good idea too. Meanwhile, it can be so stressful to be waiting for tests and... (1 replies)

... It bled a lot and even she was surprised. Then she did a vaginal ultrasound which showed which she described as a very thick lining. And now wants me to have a biopsy and seemed more concerned about the endometrium but my symptoms and risk factors are more in line with cervical cancer. The pap results will take a week. ...

... Since this cyst has shown up on three ultrasounds, it may need to be surgically removed. The fact that it is complex is somewhat concerning. I say "somewhat" because MOST ovarian cysts are benign. The free fluid in your pelvis is probably just an indication that the cyst has leaked. If you don't have a family history or gene mutation for ovarian cancer (OC) then your lifetime... (7 replies)

... Hi Lydia, thank you so much for answering my questions and sharing your experience. My Ob/gyn is doing the cone-biopsy. The hysteroscopy I believe is a camera that goes into the uterus so she can see what's going on in there, and the D&C means she will scrape out the Endo-lining. And that along with the cone will be examined in the lab.
I'm so sorry you had the results you... (4 replies)
