So so frightened

I've just had the results from my smear that I have rare and aggressive cancerous cells

In for colposcopy within the next 2 weeks and just fearing the absolute worst

Does anyone have any experience of aggressive cells theybcan share?

Hi Woody87

I don't have personal experience of rare and aggessive cancer cells.  Just thought I'd mention that you can find historical posts on the subject by typing 'rare and aggressive' in the search box top right of this page.

Hi! Cancer cells are aggressive in principle. Don't panic. The main thing is the stage and prognostic signs. Go through all the tests to clarify the stage. Find out about the available treatment options in your situation. Weigh the pros and cons. If it's dysplasia or cancer in situ, that's one thing, you'll get off with a little blood. Tune in for treatment and healing!
