Hi there!!! From what I get it can be several different things. From infection, benign conditions, or cancer. The smear should show you something though.Do you have hpv? If not then its most likely not cancer. Primarily its hpv that causes cancer. I pray you are able to find things to distract you from worrying so much till you get the results. I know its scary and people say don't worry it will be OK, easy for them to say they aren't facing the possibility of having a life changing experience. I'm here to chat if you need to talk. For me it feels better to talk about it. If I say anything to any one I know they say o don't worry you'll be OK, and thats it. I feel totally cut off. I had a pap in sept. Results: high grade squamous intra-epthileal lesion. Scared me to death! Had a colposcopy a little over a week ago and got results yesterday. Dr said seriously severe dysplaysia across my cervix (cin3) its precancerous. I'm having a leep done 11/5 and they will biopsy that. He said to see if there is anymore behind it or anything worse, if so they will do a hysterectomy. If not then I'm cured! BTW just remember even if you did have cancer it is highly treatable now.
