Pains in Cervix

I was diagnosed with Dysplasia in 2001. I'm having faint shooting and stabbing pains in the sides of my cervix and slight back pains on the same side. I just recently had an abortion 5 weeks ago. However I had my first abnormal pap smear when I was 15. By 16 I began the leep procedures. To take a wild guess, I'd say I've had at least 2 Leeps to remove cells. The last time I had a pap smear was almost 4 years ago and I can't remember if I was HGSIL, LSIL, mild or moderate. The pelvic pain has just recently started. Please respond I'm beginning to get scared. I don't have any insurance and would like to get information on a low income clinic. I want to have kids in the future and I hope this doesn't prevent me.

cervical cancer

I have moderate pain in my lower left side that comes and goes and recently has radiated to my lower back. I have been checked for a UTI and it was negative. I have had a hysterectomy years ago. I also have extreme gas and am losing weight. ( that part I don't mind) I sometimes experience some bladder spasms.

Please Help, Worried!

I was diagnosed with HPV over a year ago. Doc said he wanted to do a coposcopy and did, saying it was abnormal and they needed to do cryo. That was about 5 months ago. I've got an appointment set up for Sept. 21, but over the past two months I've been having what seems like spotting with dark blood and sometimes bright red blood, but it doesn't always last all day and I sometimes go a few days without it happening. My stomach hurts, like it's my ovaries, my legs have been hurting and my back is stiff as a board and I'm only 28. I'm scared it may be full blown cancer. Any ideas? Has anyone else had these sypmtoms and found out that it was cancer? Please let me know! Thanks

DO I REALLY HAVE IT?

Aside from frequent abdominal pains before and slight bleeding after sexual intercourse I also had discharge with foul odor. What should I do?

DO I REALLY HAVE IT?

I experience frequent abdominal pains before. And, I haven't had my regular menstruation this past 2 months. And, for this month, I had bleeding after having sexual intercourse with my husband. What do I have to do to know if I really have cervical cancer or if I have other disease. thank you...

symptoms

i keep getting the unusual discharge and the horrible pains in the pelvis. i was taken in to the hospital a week ago and had a smear test done . i am really scared as i have got to get my results tomorrow i dont know what i would do if they came back wiv a high cell count and had to do a biopsy

2 abnormal paps in a year

get a biopsy. don"t let the doctor tell you it can wait. be safe. especially if you have had unusual bleeding (during or after sex for example). Listen to your body. I was diagnosed six years ago. Full- blown cervical cancer. Had complete hysterectomy. Had back pains, cervical pain, heavy bleeding, & 3 abnormal Paps before my Dr decided to do biopsy. Dr's kept telling me it was nothing to worry about, I just needed to find the right oral contreceptives for me. (after lots of trial & error w/differnt Birth control pills). I was fortunate the cancer was confined to my cervics.

what is going on

I have not bleed in 2 years and just recently I started spotting and now again two months later the same thing is going on have had ultra sound and vaginal scope done lab work but no pelvic exam done and is that the only way to find out if I have cervical cancer?
—Guest Shirley

worried about the outcom

I did a pap smear a few months ago and my doctor called me in to tell me that I have high grade lesions. I am waiting now to do another test colposcopy which I will be doing Sept. 23. I am also worried about what is going to happen. If it comes back positive to cervical cancer, what kind of surgery will I have to go through and if I have to take some time off of work.

Givin Me the Runaround

I've had "abnormal" paps since I was 13yrs old. I had nurses and doctors tell me that usually the "abnormal" will go away with time. I had my first colpo at 17 and I finally found a doctor that I like here in my hometown who has really tried to get to the bottom of this. I have had two more colpo's and cryo-therapy done and I am still mod-high pre-cancer. My doctor says that he doesn't want to go any further, meaning a leep or a hyster, because I am newly married and have no children. So, I am to schedule a pap in a year and just wait. I asked his nurse what my chances are of getting cancer since I have had abnormal paps at age 13 til now at 22 years old, heavy/crampy periods that last at least 6-8 days, the first two days being so bad at times, I don't want to do anything but sleep. I am always tired. I am always moody. I don't know if that has anything to do with my problems and I do like my doctor, but, my gut feeling is that I need a second opinion. Please email me with answers!
