This is my first post, so please bear with me. I hope I'm able to make a contribution here. I've had regular pap smears every two years like clockwork. I am 31, married with one child. I have never received an abnormal pap result. Until 48 hours ago.
Diagnosed with Endocervical Adenocarcinoma in situ - first up. Do not collect $50, do not pass Go!
Is it rare for someone to be diagnosed with this by way of pap smear? Surely the pathology would need to be bang on the money, yes?
I underwent the colposcopy and biopsy yesterday, to confirm the smear results.
But, I'm guessing we are all sadly familiar with the drill.
Btw, there is no family history of cervical cancers. However, my identical twin has secondary liver cancer, which originated in her breast late 2010.
Just really wanting to say "hi" to everyone and to have a bit if a natter.
