Possible, unlikely: Cervical cancer can cause spotting, but the large majority of spotting has other causes, including hormonal (e.g. estrogen) issues and infections, e.g. STDs. It sounds like you're seeing a doctor about this. If you had cancer, she would have seen it and discussed it with you. However, you also need another pap smear with HPV testing and perhaps STD testing if at risk. Discuss with your doctor.
