I had my colposcopy this morning. The consultant couldn't see any abnormal cells on the outside of my cervix but said he can't see futher up the cervix so took a smear which he said would catch any abnormal cells from up there.
I didn't get referred for the colposcopy from an abnormal smear but because I was having abnormal bleeding etc, my next smear isnt due till next year.
Now im a bit worried because I've read on here from a few people that adenocarcinoma wasnt detected through a smear. The consultant has assured me it would be if it's there but what if it doesn't and something is up there :(
Obviously having nothing wrong with the outside of my cervix is good news but now I've got to wait another couple of weeks before I find out if the inside is clear too!!
Has anyone else been through this? Has anyone had adenocarcinoma diagnosed by smear only and biopsies later plus nothing seen on colposcopy???
