Do not be: If Pap smears have been normal in the past years, it is extremely unlikely that there is cervical cancer. Most likely the post coital bleeding is from the IUD, hopefully, it resolves over time ...Read more

28 yrs old GPA 3 2 1. Heavy periods severe back pain and abdominal tenderness. 2 c sections. 6 abnormal paps. Is cervical cancer a likely candidate?

It depends: I would need more information regarding your pap smear abnormalities. it is more likely that your symptoms are due to scaring, adhesions from your cesareans or an inflammatory condition called adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is not cancer but can cause painful periods and overtime abdominal discomfort and pain with intercourse. i advise you to seek further evaluation with your gynecologist. good luck. ...Read more

 i have bleeding. All the time now and sometimes achy lower back. I think cervical cancer is backas ?

Doctor can evaluate: A woman with abnormal vaginal bleeding (bleeding is too heavy, too many days, too frequent, or none at all) should always follow up with her primary care physician or obstetrician-gynecologist. Cervical cancer is just one of many possible causes of abnormal bleeding. Other causes include uterine cancer, hormonal problems, infections, etc... Cancer treated early has better cure or survival rates. ...Read more

If your pap smear comes back abnormal , will you get cervical cancer?

If your pap smear comes back abnormal , will you get cervical cancer?

He/she can explain the cause.There are many precancerous conditions which can go away with time.Most such changes resolve on their own and rarely are indicative of cancer development over a period of many years. ...Read more
