You've been : Responsible in getting the lesions biopsied. Now comes the hard part of waiting for results. Get an estimate of the wait time for the biopsy results from your doctor and try to put it put if your mind until then. Keep on mind that even many cervical cancers can be treated can be treated successfully. I am glad you had proper screening and what appears to be an early diagnosis.

Probalby not: What your doctor saw are likely pre-malignant lesions due to hpv infection. They range from low-grade to high-grade. Depending on the result of the pap smear, you may need colposcopy and a cevical biopsy. Follow up with the result and talk to you gynecologist.
