I did hysteroscopy and colposcopy today. The findings were: CIN 1 polyp on the cervix and enlargement of endometrium with excision of septum of the cervico - vaginal region. Not question is how could they diagnose CIN 1 polyp before the biopsy results?! Now am terrified that I have cervical cancer that spread to the endometrium causing its enlargement. The doctor is super rude and explain nothing , he said nothing to say before the biopsy and am terrified crying when I see my daughters 

  • Hi  

    It’s not possible for us to give medical opinion in the group or try to interpret any results as we are only patients here to help provide support to others based on our own experiences. 

    Do you know how long you need to wait for your biopsy results? At the moment you don’t have answers so if you are speculating on what the results will be, you will only increase your anxiety. The biopsy results will hopefully give you the answers you need.

  • Hi Loli

    I'm so sorry the doctor was rude and didn't explain anything.  I know from personal experience that type of experience can be traumatic and have a very negative impact on our emotions. 

    It can be very tempting to Google for answers and it really would be best to try not to do this as it will only increase your anxiety.   Hopefully you won't have to wait too long until you get your biopsy results.  It gets easier to cope when you know more about what you're actually dealing with.

    I was diagnosed with stage 2A squamous cell cervical cancer (node negative) in 2017 following symptoms: persistent, watery, yellow vaginal discharge then post-menopuasal bleeding.  My treatment was a radical hysterectomy followed by chemo-radiotherapy.  My long term side effects include lymphoedema and urinary retention which I manage with intermittent self catheterisation.

  • Hi  

    How are you? Have you managed to get your questions answered by your doctor or has treatment been suggested?

  • Hi 

    Thank you for your question. I am very frustrated honestly. The gyno did hysteroscopy and the biopsy results are dysplasia. Am frustrated because the biopsy is taken from the endometrium not the cervix. I have very light red blood so I needed to check the cervix but no one listened to me. 

    love 

  • Hi  

    You did say that you had a colposcopy, so that is where they have a very close look at the cervix. Maybe the doctor didn’t feel it was necessary to take a biopsy of the cervix if they didn’t see anything of concern? You mentioned CIN1, which is often left to check again at a future date to see if the cells have regressed back to normal. 

    You also mentioned a polyp-is that going to be removed? Have they got an explanation for your bleeding? I’m  sorry you remain frustrated and still looking for more definite answers to your problems. I can understand your frustration about all of this. Are you going back to the doctor for any further appointments?
