Hi im new to this forum. i have been experiencing symptoms for around 3 years. i kept going to docs and was told the discharge was BV and this was the reason i was bleeding. I took to investigating my symptoms myself as i didnt feel i was getting anywhere with my docs.
i have been diagnosed on monday with stage 1b2 cervical cancer. My consultant has requested i need a physical exam under GA for futher biopsies etc. i was wondering has anyone had this done after diagnosis as im worried that it could have spread. The hospital staff have been so good with me and was shocked to hear how my doctors have attributed my symptoms to a mere infection. Im not in shock as i knew deep down. i can appriciate that i am lucky and that there are much more serious diagnosis that other patients have received.
On the letter it stated that the tumour is around 4cm but i have looked onine and it states that the cancer is 4cm so im really confused is it a tumour or cancer? I have been offered a hystorectomy to treat it. what are everybody elses experiences with cervical cancer and the diagnosis process. The main thing i find confusing is that i have glandular neoplasia which i thought was only in the glands and if so how have they found it on my MRI scan?
