Period: Hello. If your colposcopy was normal than you do not have cancer. Your GYN will likely recommend an early PAP smear to follow-up on the the one that showed some changes - probably in 6 months. Many times the next PAP smear is normal and you can go back to a normal schedule but it is important that you go to all the appointments and follow the recommendations for future PAP smears.

Cervical cancer: Truly anything is possible but unlikely. With that many ASCUS paps I would request my slides be sent to a different pathology group for review.
