Adenocarcinoma in situ of the cervix.

I had a vaginal hysterectomy 20.10.08 because og adenocarcinoma of the cervix. I have got my patalogy report now and it schows that the cancercells still are in situ and has not became invasive yet. Adenocarcinoma is a multifocal lesion and on the internet I reas that wimen should have follow up pap smears from the vagina.
The gyn that called me from the hospital dont thinks that is nesecarry.
I want to know what others here have done after hysterectomy because og adenocarcinoma in situ of the cervix. Do you have follow up check ups????

Adenocarcinoma in situ of the cervix.

good news that the the adenocarcinoma was 'in situ' rather than invasive! and that would mean you don't need further treatment, right? BUT, you definitely (definitely!!!) need to have regular follow up pap smears. this is recommended by the american cancer society, american college of obstetrician and gynecologists, and so forth! hpv is the causative agent of cervical cancer/dysplasia, and the virus can still cause other problems in the vagina, vulva, etc. and though it's not common, it's also not rare! please be sure to be seeing a board certified gynecologist or gynecologic oncologist and make sure your doctor is practicing medical excellence - you need and deserve it!

I'm glad your lesions were restricted to in-situ and not invasive. That is good news.

I had adenocarcinoma Ia1 and I will be having regular smears of my vaginal cuff (where they tied up the vagina where the cervix use to be). Right now, I see my gyn/onc every 3 months. I don't know if I'll have a swab every 3 months or less often than that. From the idea I get, it wouldn't be a bad idea to continue getting swabs AT LEAST every year.
