After an abnormal pap and irregular bleeding, I was scheduled for a colposcopy today. My doctor found a large mass on my cervix. She said it appeared to be about 6 cm, and she thinks it's stage 1 or 2 cervical cancer. I was floored when I heard the C word... I get regular paps every year and nothing has ever shown up. It's been very emotional today. And of course, I took to the Internet to find out everything I can about this cancer. I'm still awaiting biopsy results, but it there any chance this could be something besides cancer?
Also, I see that a lot of people on here chose radical hysterectomy, is that really a better option than radiotherapy?
