Hi, i’m new to this site and am looking for a bit of reassurance.
I’m 28 years old and have a 2.5 year old and an 8 month old.
I had my first smear in 2012 which came back as CIN 2 and 3… had colposcopy and they did LLETZ. I had a letter after which said it was all clear and to retest after a year. So i had the 2nd smear at the end of 2013 and was tested for HPV my results were clear and hpv negative.
I felt my cervix last week and felt a really hard lump about 5mm or so wide and the rest of the cervix felt quite rough. I made an appointment with gp yesterday and she took a look and a feel - her face looked worried and she went quite quiet on me. She said she could see a lot of abnormalities and could feel the lump.
She then said that she was gping to refer me back to colposcopy as an urgent referral. She said i should get an appointment within 2 weeks - she said that this is the route for cancer patients as normally it is 4-6 weeks in my area. She said she is not saying it is cancer but wants me in quick to look.
I get discomfort when i have sex and over the last few months get bad back pain and abdominal bloating.
I am petrified that the Gp has seen something really bad but didnt want to tell me… has anyone else ever had such abnormalities that can be seen with naked eye within a short space of time (my last sear was clear just over 2 years ago)
Could my last results have been wrong?
Also is it true that you can only get CIN3 if you are Hpv positive? My result was negative but have had CIN3 and potentially back again.
Thank you in advance
