Oh my goodness........I can't believe your GP would say that to you.......thats just dreadful!
Just for reassurance - my GP did the absolute opposite She told me that my letter was badly worded - it said I had high grade dyskaryosis, that it was 'unlikley' I had cancer but I needed a colposcopy anyway (just seeing 'high grade' and 'cancer' in the same sentence sent me up to the moon!) - and told me that only a few years back I would have been left for 6 months to see if the cells would have gone back to normal by themselves, that it wasnt cancer (yet) and was extremely unlikely to turn out to be so. She explained that 1 in 20 women have an abnormal result and that its pretty common. She tried very hard to put my mind at rest so it just shows that some GPs (in the know) have the empathy to give you facts AND reassurance. Please dont pay any attention, Tank is correct GPs dont know it all. I was lucky enough to see the GP who has made it her business to specialise in Gynae practice. Yours sounds like the unemotional detached sort who dont realise the impact of their ill chosen words!
Good luck with your appointment, hopefully you will see someone who knows what they are talkign about :-)
