Looking back, did you have symptoms?

My question is for anyone that discovered their cancer had spread after the colposcopy.


Did you have any symptoms or feel something was not right? Or were you completely caught off guard? 



I had no idea I had cancer. Only symptom i had was spotting which I thought was caused by my c section 4 months prior to my diagnosis.

28-8-2019 diagnosed grade 2 squamous 2B 4 cm tumor Mri suspect lymphe nodes but pet scan Shows no lymph nodes 25 radio extended field, 6 chemo and 4 brachy finished October 29 2019

I had stage one cancer and no symptoms at all. I felt great actually.

I had just one massive bleed. Now. Looking back I had a bit of discharge a few weeks before but I thought it was stress or thrush. After the bleed I had a slight discomfort in my left leg, like cramp. 

06 Jan 20 massive bleed. 7 feb 20 smear came back highly differentiated severe dyskolious. 14 Feb biopsies taken. 21st Feb cc cells found. 22 Feb 20 told poorly differentiated squamous cell. 28 Feb staged at 2a. Tumour is 2.4mm/9mm 6 March restaged at 3c due to 3 lymph node involvement - x1 2cm. 12 Mar 20 met oncologist - told me coronavirus will probably kill me before cc does. 18 March 20 pre scan booked.

I had no symptoms at all, never had an unexpected bleed, and like Lauriebeth, felt great.
