Last Friday I was told that my smear test result showed rare and severe high grade abnormalities in the endo cervical (glandular) region. When I asked whether it could be cancer I was told that it might be. I have never been so terrified in my life and my first thoughts were that I am going to die and not see my two young children grow up.
I am booked in for a Colposcopy next Tuesday. I have been doing a lot of googling on endo cervical cancers and reading all sorts of horror stories so thought I'd put a message on here to see if anybody is going through similar things to me.
Has anybody else been told they have rare and severe high grade abnormalities in the endo cervical (glandular) region? What's frightening me the most is that I have read that smear tests are not designed to pick up endo cervical abnormalities which are in the cervical canal, so the fact that these cells have been found on the cervix could mean that, if it is cancer, it has begun to spread? I'm experiencing a dull ache in the pelvic area along with sporadic stabbing pains. I've had a small amount of irregular bleeding in the last few weeks but nothing much.
I have had pelvic aches and pains for years and but tests and scans have never come up with anything. I also often feel as if something is pressing on my bladder and am always dashing to the loo, have been reading this could also be a sign of cancer. Arrrgghhh I'm driving myself mad with worry. I know I just need to wait for my colposcopy appointment but it's hard not to worry.
Is anybody else feeling the same as me?
