I’m 21 and I have a coloscopy coming up. I’ve been scared and dreading everything. My Pap smear came abnormal with low grade dyskaryosis CIN 1, my HPV 16/18 came back negative but 1 HPV came back positive what does this mean for me? I’ve been doing research online and all I see is cancer. What if they do a biopsy and find abnormal cells what happens?
I'm sorry to see that nobody in this group has felt that they can share their experiences with, especially as I recommended that you joined this group for help and support.
I haven't had a colposcopy but found this information for you which tells you about the procedure and also has a video explaining what will happen on the day.
As I don't know what your results mean could I suggest that you post that question in ask a nurse and one of the specialist nurses will aim to reply within 2 working days. You could also ask about potential treatment for this condition too although I have found this information which you might like to take a look at.
Let us know how you get on.
