I just found out last Thursday that I have cervical cancer. I’m sure I don’t have all of the terms down yet, but it seems like I have at least stage 1A2 grade 2 squamous cell carcinoma. I had a LEEP done 2 weeks ago and it showed a depth of stromal invasion 3.0 mm at least. Apparently the exact depth couldn’t be determined due to “transection at the deep margin.” I had a PET scan on Tuesday and it was clear (no evidence of hypermetabolic metastatic disease). I’m meeting with the gynecologic oncologist tomorrow and I’m a little overwhelmed.
Are there any specific questions that I should ask the oncologist? Has anyone else had a similar diagnosis that can share their experience? I just found this forum today, and I’m trying to read some stories in my free time. I’m so glad there is a community for support with this. I’m just feeling a little lost. Thanks.
