I'm really new to this site and forum and hoping I can get a little support as I'm feeling a bit crap and worried.
I had my first smear test a couple of weeks ago and got a letter saying they had found high grade dyskaryosis and to go for a colposcopy. I've been for the colposcopy today, and the Dr took me into an office and asked me a bunch of questions, then informed me I would need to come back in a couple of weeks for treatment. She then said today they would also be taking a biopsy and directed me to another room. I had the colposcopy and she took 2 biopsies. The nurse said the biopsy results can take up to 4 weeks but can be quicker when they find something that needs to be seen to.
Now I'm kind of confused. If I'm already going back for 'treatment' why does a biospy need to be done? And it sounds like that will be before the biospy results come in, so are they just removing something without knowing what it is? Also - I thought that treatment to remove the bad cells is done on the day, at the same time as the colposcopy - so why am I needing to go in seperately? She also told me I would need to arrange childcare and have at least a day of rest after the procedure. It makes it seem somewhat more full on that a quick scrape of a few dodgy cells?
I guess my bottom line question is - is there chance I have cancer?
