I’m new to the forum and just needed to vent.
I’m 24 and went for my 1st smear. My results came back with high grade dyskaryosis. I’m booked in for a colposcopy in two weeks. It’s all I keep thinking of and can’t stop worrying! I find myself going into thoughts of 'worst case scenario' and then getting upset throughout the day. I can’t bare the not knowing.
My great Nan passed away of cervical cancer when she was in her early 40s, my Nan battled cervical cancer in her late 30s, my mum had treatment when I was younger and now my results are showing abnormalities. I know they say it’s not hereditary as it’s mainly contracted through HPV but I can’t help but think this isn’t a coincidence.
I know there are people in a much worse position than me and feel daft for over thinking things but I just want to know what’s what.
Any advice on how to stop my mind going into overdrive would be greatly appreciated... xx
1st smear – 17th April
