Anyone not have a smear in15+ years and came out with no cancer?

I haven't had a smear in about 15 years. I had one this year and the results came back asc-h. I am going to have a keep done on the 17th. HAs anyone not had a smear in a long time and came out with no cancer?

ASC-H pap results

LEEP to be performed on September 17, 2020

September 20, 2020 LEEP done. Dr said I didn't have cancer. Waiting for results.

LEEP results are CIN3 all margins clear. No cancer. ECC was negative for SIL or cancer.

I go back for another smear in 6 months.

I have not had a pap in about 15 years.

Atypical squamous cells cannot rule out high grade lesion

Hi Angela

I can't really answer your question but I just wanted to say that those who have been treated who find out they do not have cancer very often don't return to this website and so the likelihood that they would see your post would be small. I have never missed a smear but still ended up needing treatment & it turned out they didn't find cancer but I learned that HPV can lay dormant for many years and that it usually takes a long time for cervical cancer to grow. There's no point beating yourself up for missing those 15 years. The positive thing is that you are now in the system and will get treated. It is human nature to fear the worst. You will probably feel better when you know where you stand. Big hugs

1st ever abnormal smear hpv & severe high grade dyskaryosis August 2019 lletz September 2019 polyp & nabothian cyst found Results hpv & mild cell changes polyp innocent Repeat colposcopy Dec 2019 test of cure January 2020 results of test of cure; no high risk HPV present , check up colposcopy appointment in June because of the discrepancy between initial smear & lletz result - June 2020 repeat colposcopy & pap - all clear - discharged from hospital - next smear in 3 yrs Back again August 2020 following post menopausal bleed; more tests! Turned out to be hormonal/menopause related but they also discovered a small ovarian cyst which they will check again in 4 months; cyst was not related to bleeding

Not quite that long but my last smear was 2008 so 12 years. Not deliberate - I don't know how I missed two smears! Came back HPV infection and abnormal cells. Went for colpscopy and he nurse told me it was a "high grade" infection so I was pretty worried. Had to go again and have it under general anaesthetic and the consultant said it was tiny and he's removed all the affected tissue and he's "very optimistic". No mention of cancer yet.
