Waiting patiently even tho the consultant reassured me he said it doesn’t look sinster.  Still telling me I have to wait.   Kind of convinced myself nothings going on.  But deep down it pops back up the maybes.  Is this normal should I take is word for it 

  • Hi Angie ( 

    Unfortunately, you’ll always have that niggle at the back of your mind until you get your results I think.

    It seems strange that you were told by the doctor that they saw a 5cm lesion, yet the consultant has told you nothing looks sinister. Did the consultant not mention the lesion at all? 5cm is quite large in the scheme of things.

    Your consultant won’t know what things are until he gets the biopsy results, so he can’t say anything for definite at the moment. The waiting is hard, but you’ll just have to hang in there until you get your results. Not too long now.

  • He did mention the Liason.  That’s what he said he don’t think

    its sinster   But kept telling me not to worry.   Telling me.  But wait for the results feel

    like been fed false hope by is comments so confused 

  • To be honest I think it’s better if they don’t say anything until they get the biopsy results. If the biopsy shows cancer you’ll have had false reassurance. My consultant could see my tumour when he examined me-it was less than 4cm but he didn’t say anything about cancer-just that he had found a lesion and would need biopsies. So I didn’t spend my time worrying. 

    Did he suggest what the lesion might be? For example did he think it might be a polyp?

  • No he just put silver nitrate on it he even said if results are clear I don’t need to go back to clinic it’s done with  never said anything that he thought it may be said not a lot going on it don’t look sinster  like I said drilling it into me. Wait for results  I am head screwed wished he had said nothing I am taking this as gospel I no I should not but he put me on a high got a trans vaginal scan on the 12 th to he wants that doing 

  • So it sounds like he definitely believes it is NOT cancer-I’ve never heard of silver nitrate being used for anything but abnormal cells, which are not cancer, and stopping bleeding.  It’s all a little bizarre sounding to be honest, but hopefully he is correct and there’s nothing to worry about. The TV scan will give some more information which can hopefully reassure you too.

    I presume you’ll have another appointment once the scan results are through just so everything is talked through face to face?

  • Oh Angie

    I’m so sad to read this-it’s awful not to have anyone to talk things through with when you’re going through this. You will feel so let down and rightly so. 

    I’m always around to reply to your posts here, but also you can phone the Macmillan support line-the number is in my signature below if you just feel you need to talk to someone on the phone. They can offer emotional support, and also you can ask questions to the Macmillan nurses. They can really help. I’ve phoned the support line myself before, and they are wonderful and so empathetic. 

    I hope you don’t mind me asking, but are you up to date with your smear tests? Have you ever had abnormal cells before, or any treatment for abnormal cells? You’re in the middle of such a stressful situation right now, it’s incredibly difficult for you.

    l’m sending you a big soft virtual hug, to let you know I care about you.

  • Hi... the waiting and uncertainty is the hardest part as your mind plays tricks on you.

    I was diagnosed in November. The specialist saw a 1cm lesion which she thought was most likely an ectropian but she did a biopsy and used silver nitrate to kind of cauterize the lesion and stop the bleeding. Unfortunately the biopsy showed cancer and I have just had my first post op check up.

    Once you know what you are facing it does get easier. Hopefully nothing to worry about but we are all here as sounding boards if needed. Nobody understands how it feels like we do. We are all here for you xx
