Hey, I was searching the web and stumbled across this site, maybe you can help.
My wife went for her first smear in 8 years last week, she is 34. Her last smear was after our first child was born, she is now 9. That was normal.
She received a letter yesterday with the results of her smear, low grade dyskaryosis and high risk HPV. She received a phone call this afternoon from the hospital with an appointment for 5 weeks time. Colposcopy booked.
I’ve done some reading online which has put both our minds at rest a little, but I’m a “worst case scenario” type of guy and my head is pounding with thoughts!
What if they’ve mistaken the results and it’s worse than what they think type of thoughts…
But then surely they can’t be that worried if they want her to wait 5 weeks for the other tests?
Does low grade dyskaryosis have to mutate to high grade before it then becomes cancerous? These are questions Google dosent really answer, it seems you amazing people know your stuff so any advice would be most appreciated… Thank you
