Hello, everyone. I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I'm mostly on here to speak with people who are going through the same or similar situation and for emotional support, because honestly I just feel so lost right now. :(
About a year ago, I had an abnormal pap smear or low grade dysplasia, so they did the colposcopy and biopsy. When the results came back, the doctor said that the biopsy showed only some irritation and it wasn't precancer or anything to be concerned about much to my relief.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I had another colpo and biopsy. This biopsy came back that I have CIN III and will need to have LEEP done under GA at the hospital. How could it go from just irritation and not precancerous cells to CIN III in just a year? I thought this was supposed to be a slow growing disease, right? Am I missing something? The only thing I can think of is that he either missed some areas during the biopsy a year ago, or I have a particularly bad case. They also told me that they do the LEEP and then send off the tissue for further testing to make sure it's not cancer. I thought that was the point of the biopsy they already did... Is it possible I already have cervical cancer and not CIN III? Is it something you can only see after a LEEP or similar invasive procedure?
I'm sorry for all the questions, but I'd really appreciate some advice from people who are knowledgable about the disease or just people that are in this situation that want to talk and offer emotional support to one another. Thank you in advance. x
