If its caught early then the survival stats are very high 94% for stage I. Also the younger you are the higher the rate.
Hope things are ok.

Here are the stats, but dont self diagnose or misinterpret the figures.

Very high. Have you had a smear test? Also, it's insane that they don't cervical smear til 25 especially if you were too old for the vaccination. As it's an sti when you get bloods etc. To check for hiv and syphillis they should also do a smear test imo.

Suspected is not actual. hard to stop your mind wandering, except its been found early and you have age on your side. I prefer to find out about things as that can take fear away, but dont make youself paranoid. Fingers crossed.

Heya :hugs: Hope you're okay - try not to stress about this. I had to have a cervical biopsy recently too - it sounds scary but it's not all that bad.

Cervical cancer is very, very treatable if caught early. So try not to stress too much :hugs:

They may have decided to skip the smear (which is just like a swab) and instead go straight to take a look at the cervix with a microscope to see if there are any changes and take a biopsy.

And with every cell of my body, I hope you are safe, and the results negative.

Whatever the answer is, remember that statistics are after all just about likelihood. My mother had ovarian cancer stage 3iii. Statistics said she'd live 2 years max, despite that she lived for 8 years. So yea, just be careful with what you read.

That makes sense I didn't realise this was an option.

I see so it's just skipping the smear as Puddles says above.

Well importantly see it like a routine smear because it's still the first level of investigation into this. So don't worry at all. Do you know what the biopsy will involve- like have they given you a patient information leaflet ?

And seriously the chances of developing late stage cancer purely with infection of the Human Papilloma Virus are very very slim. Catching it early is very important and it looks like you will if it is the worst case scenario.

Heya, it doesn't really hurt that much - they will have a speculum which can be a bit uncomfortable if you've not had that before.

I'm not sure if they will do the same for you, but for me they used a numbing gel thing and then put a kind of dye on my cervix which allows them to see any changes. Then they have a look with a microscope (if you're lucky it might have a camera on it, then you get a screen so you can see what they can see :lol:). Then they take a tiny biopsy. It doesn't really hurt - it feels more like period cramps. No baths (showers are okay) and no sex for a few days afterwards so that the cut has plenty of time to heal. :yy:

Afterwards they gave me a cup of tea and they'll ask you sit down for a while as it can make you feel a bit faint.

It sounds like you've taken action quickly and they're being thorough, which is really good

not on the biopsy, the leaflet was just about why im being seen in 2 weeks time. and no idea what it entails eek!
