I am new to this forum and i joined because i wanted some advice as im now starting to panic!!
Nearly 5 years ago i had my first smear test and the results came back as CIN3, i had a colposcopy but was told nothing could be done then as the amount of cells affected would need to be removed under general anaesthetic. So i had the surgery about a month later and a smear test after recovery which came back clear.
Since then i've had clear results and just over 4 weeks ago i had my latest smear but havent had the results back yet.
My worries lie in the fact that the nurse said that currently the results take 2-3 weeks, that has passed so i rang the Dr and they said 3-4 weeks and they hadnt even received them back to the surgery yet!!
My questions are, because i've had abnormal changes before, can these changes happen again within 12 months, can cancer develop in 12 months and do positive results take longer than negative ones?
I'm stressing out now!!!
I would be really grateful for some advice xxx
