You : You need to discuss the results of your pap smear with your doctor again so you better understand what was found.

Was diagnosed with early stages of cervical cancer. I'm 19, advised to do a surgery this month coming. I have a deep pain during sex almost in stomach?

Was diagnosed with early stages of cervical cancer. I'm 19, advised to do a surgery this month coming. I have a deep pain during sex almost in stomach?

Glad it was found: Elect for the surgery. It will probably be curative. Back in the bad old day, tens of thousands of women, many of them young, died of cervical cancer each year. Today's care prevents this. If you are offered the hpv vaccine, take it. It will protect you from any additional dangerous strain you may not yet have contracted. Your discomfort during sex may be due to endometriosis, probably not cancer. ...Read more

We don't know.: What you do know is that this new sexual partner has likely been exposed to hpv strains that are the high risk type. However, it is unlikely that you or anyone else for that matter will go through life having never been exposed to hpv. Hpv is extremely common and hpv vaccine, getting regular pap smears and follow up/treatment is the only way to truly prevent cervical cancer. ...Read more
