Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board


Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Hi, All. Please offer any and all expertise, please please please. I am generally very healthy, 37, married, 2 healthy kids, one baby loss to anencephaly, non-smoker, non-drinker, eat healthy, exercise, could lose a few pounds, had 2 laparoscopies for ovarian cysts (one in teen years, one in my 30's) and HPV negative.

My new/current OB/GYN and her staff were very critical that I was googling and trying to make sense of my latest pap results. I'm not terribly confident in her medical practice (although the group of docs came recommended). Sigh. This doc is new to me as we recently moved to a new city/state.

For the last 3 years, I have alternated between normal and abnormal paps...my prior doc always labeled/explained the results as "atypia." She never seemed concerned since I never had two back-to-back abnormal paps (she was testing me every 6 months). She last saw me 9 months ago, before our move, and my resluts were abnormal (atypia again). She directed me to come back in 6 months.

Due to our move, 9 months have passed. I went to this new doc in our new state for a pap. I got abnormal results 2 weeks ago. This is my first back-to-back abnormal test. The nurse told me I have two types of abnormal cells...the ACUS and AGUS. Never having heard of glandular cells on a cervix, I began my search to understand exactly what is going on in my body.

Yesterday, I had a colposcopy. She took cervical biospies at 7, 10, and 1 o'clock. She also did an endometrial biopsy. She said through her visual examination, she thought I had mild dsyplasia. She said she'd call me with the path. results in about a week to week and a half.

Is snipping cervical flesh different than the ECC you all praise?

I was on Day 5 of my period (wore a tampon on Day 4). I only needed a panty liner on Day 5. I called old OB-GYN's nurse and she said that their practice would consider the AGUS as perhaps being read on the pap due to being on my period at the time of the pap. My new OB-GYN said "no" and that there was no mention in the pap report of too many red blood cells and she felt my period had nothing to do with the AGUS. I hate it when two docs have two totally different perspectives. GRRRRR.

Where do I go from here? Any help is soooo appreciated. Waiting is hard.

Blessings to you all and thanks for being such a wealth of information.

Sincerely,
D
