... anybody being very "zen" in your shoes!! Please check back in when you get a chance and let us know how you're doing. There are many support groups available for cervical cancer if you should need them. Sending you lots of warm thoughts and support. ... (1 replies)
... GYN and soon. He explained to me that my cervix looked "like a chunk of it was missing". When my OBGYN saw me she confirmed that my "cervix had the appearance of cervical cancer". She did a pap smear and told me to "be zen until then". ... (1 replies)
Pap scare
Jul 10, 2014
... Regardless of what the cervix looks like, only a biopsy can really tell you what you're dealing with. Cervical lesions can be caused by multiple things, and at this point you just can't say for sure. ... (1 replies)

Pap scare
Jul 10, 2014
... rogressed to cin3. Most paps after came back normal. In 2010 started having abnormal again. When I went for a colposcopy they couldn't get a sample because my cervical os was too narrow. They were not able to dialate me so they scheduled me for a leep. No cancerous or precancerous lesions found. ... (1 replies)
Dealing with HPV

... and you should be ok since cervical cancer typically takes many years to develop from abnormal cells. ... (12 replies)
... I don't currently have cervical cancer but I figured this is the best place to ask some questions. I have a cystocele and recent rectocele. ... (2 replies)
... An ECC would have been nice but at this point you can just wait and see what was found, as you may turn up information that will make the ECC unnecessary. I agree with StLouisgal that a hysterectomy should be your last resort. The whole BRCA thing is scary, but do remember that in this case cervical cancer/precancer is not related to BRCA, so even if you had the mutation it... (9 replies)
... Based on my knowledge and experience (an unwarranted hysterectomy), hysterectomy would be a drastic treatment. And I have heard of women who had cervical cancer (which you don't even have) who were successfully treated without having hysterectomies. Sure, removing organs will prevent cancer in them but the trade-offs (adverse effects) can be worse than the elimination of... (9 replies)
... I had an abnormal pap, AGC cells detected and HPV (16). A week later, I had a colposcopy with endometrial biopsy as well as some cervical cells removed for biopsy and an ultrasound (both vaginal and one with ovaries). I haven't heard back yet on wether or not the cells are precancerous or cancerous...should know today or early next week. Anyways, I've been doing my own reading... (9 replies)
... Thanks, Greeneday. keep us posted when you get your biopsy results back. I've got my fingers crossed for you! :-) (4 replies)
... I'm not sure which one, actually my Dr didn't specify or if she did I didn't catch it. I'm assuming it's AGC since they did the colposcopy, ultrasound and endometrial biopsies. I wrote that down so I can ask her when they call me with the biopsy results. She did mention that they would be more concerned if I was post menopausal (I'm 34). I don't know if that helps? (4 replies)
... Greeneday, what exactly were your pap results - was it AGUS or AGC? (4 replies)
... June 03, 2014 I had my colposcopy and cervical biopsy. ... (4 replies)
... I am a 28yr old female with SLE and have been recently diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer caused by the HPV virus, and I am very scared of what is going to happen. ... (1 replies)
... 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. ... (1 replies)
... 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. My question is this.. ... (1 replies)
... Cervical cancer would not be something you'd be able to feel or see with the naked eye until the end stages... and cervical cancer generally takes a very long time to develop, going through a number of precancerous stages first. ... (4 replies)
... Yeah, they did an ECC with my last one, I am sure they will again this time as well. As well as a cervical biopsy. Sigh. I just want this all to be over. ... (6 replies)
... The ECC tool is able to get a sample from higher up inside the cervical canal, in places that the colpo tool can't see. That's the best way to make sure there aren't any abnormal cells lurking up there. ... (6 replies)
... Thank you so much for your reply! I've been obsessively checking this thread all morning, in a panic. The 16/18 results STILL aren't back. I'm not anxious about the results- I'm sure it will be positive- it's just that until that comes back, my doctor will not speak to me about it. So I'm very panicky. :/ I looked up my results, and the exact wording on my surgery path... (6 replies)
