I’m wondering if anyone has been referred for a colposcopy on a 2 week cancer referral following a visual examination only?
I’ve had a contraceptive implant in for 2.5 years and have only recently (past 3 months) began bleeding/spotting sporadically. I have also been experiencing pain when urinating and increased frequency/urgency despite having no infection present.
I had a smear performed on Tuesday at which the nurse said my cervix didn’t “look normal” and she booked me in to be reviewed by my GP today.
I’ve been to my appointment today at which I’ve had another smear-like examination performed and an internal. My GP has referred me to the colposcopy clinic via a 2 week urgent referral.
I’ve been reading posts on here but many people have had abnormal results from their smear prior to being referred for further investigation. Is there anyone who has been referred following their visual examination ahead of abnormal results being reported?
I’m very worried that being referred following just a visual could mean bad news is on the horizon!
