Pre-cancerous cells, what next?

So I have been posting in another forum mostly because I didn't know this one was here I guess.

So I had an abnormal pap Nov 2008, PCP wanted to do a colp but I was laid off, had no insurance after the pap, so didn't proceed. Nov 2009 have insurance again, another abnormal pap, so this time I have the colp. She gets the results and her M.A. calls basically tells me nothing except she wants to refer me to "specialist". That's fine, so I decide to see my OB/GYN whom I haven't seen since 1998. I had lived all over the country since then and now that I'd moved back to my home town just hadn't seen a need to go to him.

Anyway, I go to that appt. he says PCP never do colp's right LOL and he wants to do his own (grr), oh yeah and btw I have HPV which my PCP never mentioned. Okay so a week later his office calls. There are pre-cancerous cells, "NOT CANCER" she repeats over an over, I'm guessing they get a lot of panickers, so I'm like okay I get it, what do you want me to do. So she schedules me for a sooner follow up. I was originally going in end of May for another pap should the colp be negitive. So now I'm going in on March 26 and I'm wondering what's going to happen now.

I'd kind of like to show up slightly prepared. If any of you have seen my other post(s) I really want a hysterectomy. My periods are heavy I guess, compared to some family members anyway, so they tell me. I apparently have more cramping and abdominal discomfort than most during that time as well. He's willing to do it, but I'm wondering if there's another step or two coming up that I don't know about. I hope I'm making sense. Okay, so looking forward to any advice/heads up I can get. Thanks.

Pre-cancerous cells, what next?

Hey there, I too have been told that I have dysplasia or a pre cancerous condition of the cervix. This was just this past October, however this was not the first time. The first time around my gyn opted to do cryosurgery where they essentially freeze off the bad portion of your cervix, it is minimally invasive and can be done right in the office. You are then followed more closely for about a year, and this procedure worked for me for about 6-7 years. I was recently seen by a new gyn for other problems such as constant pain and bad periods, they did a hysteriscope (sp) and on the way out of the uterus they accidently and thankfully caught some cervical cells and when they tested them they again tested positive for pre cancerous cells. I too have HPV. This time the doctor wanted to take a more agressive approach, so in December I had a cone biopsy of the cervix done. The results were that they thought they got all of the bad cell and this kind of treatment can be curative. I will have to go back every 3 months for the next few years and be monitored. I have yet to be rechecked, but I will be in May as I too have no insurance. I hope this helps you some if you have further questions feel free to write back <Oops!

Good luck, Michele

Re: Pre-cancerous cells, what next?

Hi there - I had a pap and colposcopy done back in 2006, the cells were pre-cancerous. My doctor did a cryosurgery (where they froze my cervix). Then I had 2 good paps following that. Until recently.
I have been having awful periods, bleeding after sex, extra long 3 week periods. I went in on Friday 27th and he did another pap, and cryo (freezing). He also told me to think about a hysterectomy and that he would contact me as soon as he got the results. So now I am waiting
I know this waiting stinks...hang in there....

Re: Pre-cancerous cells, what next?

It's rough, I had the pre cancerous cells before I had the cryosurgery about 10 years ago, then I had a hystectomy which I regret.

If I had to do it again, I would go right to an endocrinoligist and have my thyroid, adrenals and ovaries checked, learn about Estrogen dominance, which is all over the internet these days... and find out as much as I could about Progesterone, Vitamin D3, Evening Primrose oil and would have changed my diet to a lot less sugar and estrogen boosting foods.

God bless you ladies and help you through it all ...

Re: Pre-cancerous cells, what next?

Hi Stacey,

I'd encourage you to consult with a gynecological oncologist, you don't want anyone else messing around with cancer, whether it's pre-cancerous or not. And btw, my gyn also told me my condition was pre-cancerous, but my cone biopsy that was done put me at stage 1b1, NOT pre-cancerous. The cone biopsy is usually the next step, and I'd have the best gyn/onc on board to perform it if I were you. Hth, and good luck.
