got biopsies back from gyn/onc

I just got a call from gyn/onc tonight at 9:30.He said that biopsies came back with severe dysplasia very far up in cervical canal.Now he said there was a 5% chance of there being invasive cancer so wants to do a cone before hyster.Has anyone else had this in cervical canal? He then said that cutting into bladder was a concern because of my cervix being "Very,very short" .What the heck does that mean? anybody know?

Sorry, I can't help you. I don't know the answers to your questions, but I am wishing you the best and that it's NOT cancer.
Good luck and keep us posted, please.

I don't know what he means by a short cervix!

But, I have been there...know how yukky it feels. Hang in there, and have the cone. The good news is, it is still dysplasia..not invasive. So hopefully when they do the cone, it will have clear margins and you'll be done!

Now, in the meantime, broccoli and cauliflour..(in many studies.. these have reversed dysplasia. There is even a supplement available!)

I will pray for you!

Sorry, no experience here,but I did want to give you a big ole' and I hope seriously that there is no cancer. 5% chance of their being cancer means there is a 95% chance that it's NOT cancer, right?
Keep the faith.

<running off to eat some broccoli and cauliflower, even though I no longer have any of those organs>

Sounds like you caught things just in time, and will be taken care of pronto.

I don't know anything about a short cervix, fanny. (Maybe Randy Newman will write a song for you? ) "High up" in the endocervical canal, though, is where cancers can hide, and that is why the cold knife cone biopsies (if that is what you are having) are done, to remove that tissue and get a pathologist to examine it.

I do know that you want this done before a hysterectomy, because a hyster w/cancer will be handled differently than one without.

Take care ... just had a cone last Friday and they ain't that bad, really.

This is kind of hard to wrap your mind around but I will try to explain it so it makes sense. The short cervix is talking about the axis that runs parallel with the vagina.

If you think of the cervix as being a little round "box" that is usually 1-1/2" in circumference (around), 3/4" thick with the center being the os (the opening that allows menstrual blood to pass) located right in the center of the cervix just like a very small center in a donut, and 1-1/2" tall with the top part connected to the uterus and the bottom part just hanging in the top of the vagina.

The part that is being referred to as short, is the 1-1/2" tall part. The thickness of the cervix that connects the uterus to the vagina. It is this axis that a cone is taken from. Some people think of it as taking a cone from the "bottom" of the cervix. I don't know if you have had a cone which would "shorten" your cervix, but some women have a naturally short cervix. Hope this helps. Judy

I just had a Large Cone done and also have Severe Dysplasia far up into the cervical canal. Doc said I did not need my cervix anymore so we did not mind him just about taking all of it. I get my results of it on Friday.
He never said I had a short cervix or anything about the bladder...
Get your answers though....That would not be a good have something happen to your bladder just for a Cone.
Will stay posted!
