Are these symptoms of cervical cancer or normal aging?
This has been happening within the last year and a half.
1. I'm not pregnant and I'm thin, but I have bloating in lower abdomen/pelvic area below belly button. It's sticking out and hard only when lying on back for a few weeks now, but no pain (pelvis feels like I'm 3 months pregnant, but I'm not). When I stand up it's gone.
2. Smooth, hard vaginal lesions the size of a pea in the posterior vagina noticed a year and a half ago and still same/similar size (gyno. called them vaginal lesions), infrequent dull ache in area of lesions, frequent urination and urge to pee for a year now, spotting one day brown discharge a week after ending my period (this happened last week).
I'm almost 46, so I'm wondering if these are just signs of normal aging, maybe perimenopause and incontinence/bladder prolapse? I do have a long history of HPV and got HPV 16 and 18 12 years ago. I've had two abnormal paps in the past, but had a clear colposcopy 9 years ago, and a normal pap smear 3 and 5 years ago.
I'm going to make a gynecology appt. today and request a pap and ultrasound. This is early because doc said I didn't need a pap until 2020, every 5 years.
I'm concerned. Thank you for any advice.
