Hope you are well
I am Anna and I'm 30 years old and have received cervical diagnosis a week ago. Had an MRI the next day and having my CT scan this Sunday.
The doctors said the cancer looks like its in in its early stages and provisionally staged it as 1A.
I am keeping quite positive but feeling really anxious waiting for results. Hoping the stage won't change.
Wasn't having any symptoms and not having symptoms now either.
Can't believe how well I'm coping to be honest but I've noticed I'm very angry amd frustrated too especially with others but I try to control it.
I'm gappy to have joined this forum
I’m sorry I didn’t notice you had made this post before I replied to you on the other thread! I won’t repeat myself here, but will just say you are very welcome to be with us. Stage 1a is very early and very tiny, so hopefully things will remain at this early stage after your scan.
I forgot to mention that you can add information to your profile by clicking on your name, typing in what you want to say about yourself and pressing save.
When you do this it allows others to see what has brought you here and what treatment you have had. If you click on anyone’s name on the forum and they have completed this section you will be able to read their story.
If you stay at stage1a, the treatment should be very straightforward and wouldn’t involve chemotherapy or radiation. It can even be as simple as a LLETZ or cone biopsy. At that stage you’re looking at a surgical option of some sort to remove it. It really is incredibly tiny, measured in millimetres. Stage 1a1 can only been seen with a microscope, and stage 1a2 is still tiny. Statistics are very much on your side for a complete cure and very little chance of it ever recurring. Keep those thoughts in your head if you can!
That would be highly unlikely, but I’m not a medical professional so cannot say for certain it’s impossible.
I had a visible tumour measuring 3.8cm (stage 2b) and it hadn’t spread/gone to lymphnodes. And it had been there a long time, as I’d had symptoms and bleeding for a year or more before seeing a doctor.
I was worried about spread because of the size of my tumour, but scans showed it was just in one place.
