I am 36 yr old and have been newly diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma in situ.... but not sure if it is in situ as i only got results from colpo and punching biopsies, and am scheduled for laser cone on July 10 to determine if there is any invasive.
I was told about Adenocarcinoma on Tuesday and had never heard of the name before. I wad told right away when to have a cone biopsy but no MRI or CT scheduled before surgery.
Is it normal to have no further analysis to see whether i have cancer anywhere else and go right into laser cone?
I am scared as i read many blogs of who had Adenocarcinoma and past away.... and upset somehow as at annual health checkup in April i was told by a gynecologist there would be nothing to worry about and when the smear result came back with LSIL IIIA moderate dysplasia, the clinic took 1 month to prepare a referral to get a further exam done. Then when i finally could go do colpo and biopsies, i got the result that i have Adenocarcinoma in situ.... very worried as i was told it is rare to find Adenocarcinoma with biopsies test as they are unlikely to be near surface, meaning there is likely something more way up.
as i found this forum where various ladies have gone through Adenocarcinoma, it would be great if any of the ladies can give me advice on how to be positive when waiting for conization, and if it is nornal to not have any other exam before the conization (and just wait for conizationa and its result which is like a month long wait in total).
