My last smear test was November 2010, but I have bleeding in between periods, not all the time just a handful of times. I mentioned this to my doctor last week who examined me and told me I had an abnormality on my cervix. She said it was a raised patch and was quite red. She said she would refer me to gynecology. I just left her office and said thats fine. But I have been worried and can't stop thinking I have cancer and if she could see it, it must be advanced. Should I be worried and will I probably be seen quite quickly. I'm 48.
