Hello! I am completely new to this forum, and very glad to find this place. I’d appreciate any advice from you. Just as background information, I am based in the United States.
My Pap and HPV test detected E6/E7 mRNA 3 years in a row. After the second time abnormalities were detected a year ago, I had colposcopy and punch biopsy done. The result was negative. I was also hoping that maybe this procedure would accelerate the clear-up process (the medical technician also told me that there would be a good chance for that to happen). But this year I just got the third result, and no, the HPV infection hasn’t cleared up.
It looks as though I do not have any strains that are most commonly associated with cervical cancer: 16, 18, or 45. But it seems that I do have one or few of other high-risk strains.
This has caused a lot of anxiety in me, and at this point, I’m wondering if it will ever clear up or progress to cancer eventually. Is there anyone with a similar type of experience? If so, what did your doctor advise you to do? Will I need to have one of the more procedures done (LEEP, cone biopsy, etc.) immediately or some time in the near future?
Thank you very much for your advice in advance.
