Hi, I found out yesterday I have early stage cervical cancer, and wanted to ask for others opinions as my consultant seemed overly optimistic.
I had a severe abnormal smear result, so went for a colposcopy and they did a loop biopsy the same day as the consultant said it was a very large area affected. I went back for my results yesterday and was told it was cancer and I have been sceduled for a cone biopsy on the 3rd June.
The consultant said he would take a larger area away with the cone biopsy and he was extremely confident that he would get it all and I would need no further treatment.
It just seems odd that a few weeks after being diagnosed I may have the all clear!
I said I would consent to a hysterectomy, if on the day of the cone biopsy it was alot worse than he expected, as I dident want to have another surgery and obiously wanted to get rid of the cancer ASAP. But he just kept telling me he was sure I wouldn't need a hysterectomy and I wouldn't need chemo or any other treatment either.
Has anybody had a similar experience?
