I had CIN II and hpv removed in 2005 and i've had clear smears ever since. However In November 2012 I had a smear which came back borderline with hpv so was referred to colposcopy. I was gutted that 7 years later it felt i was about to begin the whole process again having already been through it once before. Anyway, 3 biopsies were taken and I got the results in Dec 2012 as 'inflammation' and asked to return to colposcopy in 6 months time. Waiting for the biopsies was a really anxious time and i ended up being off work with anxiety.
I returned to colposcopy on the 17th May 2013 (2 weeks ago) and asked that biopsies arent taken unless necessary as waiting for the results brings on anxiety. He said that he needed to take 2 biopsies. Five days later i received a letter which was also sent to my GP stating that the 'colposcopy revealed acetowhite with mosaic, i will send you the biopsy results in due course' of course i have googled this and from what I have read, this means high grade CIN. If what i have read is true, What I dont understand is, how could it show inflammation 6 months ago and now possibly CIN II or CIN III?
I have read that slight acetowhite and fine mosaic could indicate CIN I but it doesn't mention 'slight' or 'fine' in the letter.
It's been almost two weeks now and i know i could wait a further two for the biopsy results yet :( Waiting is starting to become difficult.
I was just wondering if anybody else has received a letter stating 'acetowhite with mosaic' and what was actually revealed when they got their biopsy result?
Thanks in advance x
