Diagnosed with cin 3, carcinoma in situ...very scared.

Hey everyone, I am new to this website and I am so thankful that I came across it. I am 24 years old, and was recently diagnosed with cin 3, carcinoma in situ. My doctor did a cone biopsy surgery hoping to remove all of the precancerous cells. He also scraped up into the uterus to make sure that there were no precancerous cells there because I really want to have kids.

The good news came back showing that there was no invasive cancer. I went back a week after for a check up and he said it looked like my cervix was healing very well, but he put some liquid to stop just a little section of bleeding. My surgery was more than 3 weeks ago and I am still spotting. The blood is a very light pink. Not heavy. Is this normal? (I do have two pretty physical jobs) So perhaps being on my feet all day is making me bleed? He also said that the pathology report is showing that there may still be precancerous cells in my cervix and that I will have to go back in 2-3 months to get a pap smear. Has this happened to anyone else? I was hoping the surgery would show clear margins. :( 

I have been so worried and stressed about this that I can't even concentrate at work. I feel like I am losing myself. I just keep thinking..would if cancer is growing inside me right now? I am just so scared. If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate to hear. Thank you so much.


Sorry you're going through this Hun. I can't really answer any of your questions right now as I suppose no one knows. Just remember they are keeping an eye on you & CC is very slow to develop (that's why routinely you only have a smear every 3 years). Everything crossed x

Hi girls,

i also have cin 3 severe dysplasia and was referred to a gyn-oncologist who I am seeing tomorrow. I guess she will tell me what the next step is. i was told I "definitely do not have cancer" but I am also very worried for my future as I also want children. Praying for clear margins for you !
