Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board


Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Okay, I've never heard of any link between cervical cancer and prolapse, so I did some googling and came accross this abstract:

It says:

Basically what that says to me is that your doctor should do a biopsy to rule out cervical cancer, but that chance of that is rare (1.36%). That chance that a person with a prolapse has cervicitis (basically an inflammation of the cervix that can be caused by many things) is really good (88.28%).

So, I'm sure your gyno wants to rule out cervical cancer, but it would be much more likely that your bleeding was just cause by your cervix being irritated.

Hope that helps.

And luvbug is right! Nothing is stopping you from calling up your gyno's office and asking her to tell you why she did a biopsy! She's really the one to ask.
This is encouraging! I am so glad you found that. It seemed every time I googled cervical bleeding, it came up with cancer info. That really scared me! I do feel much better. I had not ever heard of cervicitis. :) The family history of cancer still makes me feel like chances are higher for me than that, but again, I am much more encouraged now. Thanks so much!!!!:angel:
Cervicitis isn't really a disease in itself . . . it basically means your cervix is irritated. Cervicitis can be a result of cervical cancer for sure, but it could be from an infection of anything else that could irritate your cervix.

I think what that study is showing is that the chances of your bleeding being caused from irritation from the prolapse are very high and the chances of it being from cervical cancer are very low.

So, yes, very encouraging!
I had the same results when I googled post coital bleeding! Scary huh!. I was in the same boat last December with constant bleeding after sex and it was from an infection (BV) kinda like a yeast infection but from bacteria rather than a fungus like yeast. There is a very high likelihood that your cervix being prolapsed and being easier to be poked by your husbands bits during fun time or just by moving could cause the bleeding too!.

I just thought I'd share that with you:D.

Welcome to the board BTW:wave:

Jess~

PS! I am also having a hysterectomy because of cervical issues :)
