I'm new here and going out of my mind with worry. I'm just looking for any similar stories to mine.
In August 2011 I had a smear that came back as 'moderate dyskaryosis'. I had a lletz performed and have had clear smears since. My last smear was a little over a year ago and it was clear. I had one last week and was shocked that it came back as 'high grade'. I had swabs done at the same time as my smear and it came back I have thrush and I also have a telephone appointment to discuss other results. Could this be related to my smear results or could it be something else? Could thrush or infection be confused as dyskaryosis?
The doctor that performed my smear mentioned that she noticed my cervix has 'ectropion'. I had no idea what this meant but after coming home and googling it, I found a statement that it is 'hard to distinguish ectropion from cervical cancer'. This terrified me.
I had a mirena coil inserted last May. I have never had thrush before this, and I have had it twice since I had it put in. And now this. Could it all be related? I also had bleeding after sex with my ex but I just put that down to the coil but now I'm panicking it's cancer.
Has anyone had dyskaryosis come back after having a lletz performed? Has anyone been diagnosed with cancer a year after a clear smear result? If it is cancer, could it have spread to other parts of my body within a year?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm sure you all understand though!
