I had my first ever smear (I’m 25) 2 weeks ago. I got the results on Wednesday to say I have severe dyskariosis and I have a colposcopy and LLETZ booked in for Thursday morning. I am absolutely petrified. I have two young children and don’t want anymore, I’m not concerned about fertility because I just want whatever this is, gone. I’m so scared of the C Word.
My question is:
When I have the colposcopy, will they know just by looking if it’s cancerous or not? I read some threads where the specialist has looked at the cervix and said ‘I’m really concerned about this area, it looks cancerous’ or have said ‘okay well good news is that none of it looks like cancer but it is abnormal so we are going to remove it’.
Is this standard? To tell you stuff like this on the day? What were your experiences?
I have anxiety disorder and I am a survivor of multiple rape - this is a pretty big deal for me to go and trust someone with my body. I’m anxious that I’ll get there, they’ll look at it, do the procedure, send the tissue off and they won’t say anything to me and then I’ll have to wait for another god awful letter to tell me if its cancer or not.
