Hello, I hope I'm posting in the right place so apologies if not!
I'm 36 and have been referred to Gynaecology today on a 2WW referral for a colposcopy. I have a 2 year old and I'm petrified I'm going to die and leave him without a Mum
I've been having some spotting between my periods and constant period type pains all month and had a feel around inside and felt a lump on my cervix so obviously I immediately panicked
I went to the doctor today and she examined me with a speculum. She couldn't see a lump but says I have a cervical ectropion with some ulceration at the 6 o'clock position on my cervix and that's probably what I can feel
I'm not overly concerned by the ectropian as I have had one in the past but I'm very worried by the ulceration and this is why she's referred me
I had a normal smear result last May but I know they only test for HPV now not the actual cells so I'm scared that I'm in the tiny percent that is HPV negative but has dodgy cells
I do suffer with anxiety anyway and this is tipping me over the edge already, I don't know how I'm going to get through the next 2 weeks until I'm seen. I don't want my baby to have to grow up without me or have to have a hysterectomy so I can't have another baby
Has anyone been told they have an ulcerated area and it not turned out to be something bad? Dr Google is not reassuring as all the cancerous photos are ulcerated. Please help me
