I feel a bit of a fraud posting as I haven't been diagnosed with cervical cancer or abnormal cells but I'm concerned about symptoms and cannot get a GP appointment until the 8th of September!!
So I was DX with PCOS around 18 months/2 years ago but suspect I've had it a good few years just that being on the pill masked the symptoms. I'd been off the pill 3 years prior to DX and no hormonal contraception since. hi
Around a year or so ago I started spotting between periods. Sometimes it would be around the time I should be ovulating, other times the day before my period properly started which is fine. Changes can happen.
My concern is my latest cycle. I'm currently on day 72 and still no period. What I have been getting is some intermittent spotting. Started 2 weeks ago and happened once a day for about 3 days then stopped. Then once more that Friday night. Nothing more over that weekend but it returned last monday when I had brown dsicharge and then bled, enough for me to think my period had starting albeit very lightly. That only happened the once then back to very light spotting, up until last night I thought it had stopped again until I wiped after a wee and there was brown discharge again. It's only even on the toilet paper when I wipe.
I have cramps like I'm getting my period and my back aches like hell but nothing.
My main concern is obviously Cervical cancer which has brought me here. My last smear was January 2017 and was clear, I have also had internal US for an ovarian cyst. Most recent being October last year.
Transvaginal examination performed with verbal consent obtained.
A left ovarian simple cyst has increased in size and changed to
multilocular cyst measuring 5.7 x 4 x 5.4 cm. This cyst contains
approximatelly four locules, its septae are thin except cross point of
septae. Right ovary appears normal. A normal A/V uterus. The
endometrium is normal measuring 13 mm at the fundus. No free fluid in
October 2017 - No notes but Transvaginal US showed that cyst had shrunk - everything else clear.
Is it still possible this could be cervical cancer less than a year later?
