Cancers take time to develop and there are lengths of time that are reasonably safe for waiting. I'm glad that you understand the importance of this and wish you a good outcome. ...Read more

It is unlikely that that would happen and if that woman was having annual exams and paps as recommended the problem could be detected and treated to prevent cancer altogether. ...Read more

Can ladies who have cervical cancer have a harder time getting pregnant?

Can ladies who have cervical cancer have a harder time getting pregnant?

Yes: The rapidly dividing cervical cancer cells produce a major white blood cell (WBC) reaction by the body trying to "defend itself" from the invasion.

If I had a cervical smear test and I had cervical cancer would the actual smear result written to me say a finding of cancer? Or something else.

Yes if diagnostic: First of all, the sample must be adequate. Sometimes there are not enough cells or there is a lot of obscuring blood and debris and a definitive diagnosis is impossible. If adequate, the diagnosis could be benign (examples: normal, non-neoplastic, inflammatory) or malignant (ex: squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, etc.). Also possible: atypical/premalignant (ex: atypical squamous cells). ...Read more

What: What is the diagnosis that was told to you by all the doctors you have seen? What medication was prescribed?
Vaginal "secretion" or discharge is typically not a sign of cervical cancer. A pap smear detects cervical changes including cancer, so if you have not had one this year, I recommend you get one.
Back to the discharge. Have you been tested for std's? Vaginal cultures done? Please reply with the answers to my questions and a description of the discharge and any associated symptoms (odor, irritation, itching).
Hope to hear from you soon. ...Read more

Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation. Atypical endocervical cells seen. On my pap smear result. Am I at risk to cervical cancer?

HPV test?: Unfortunately, anyone who has had genital contact is at risk for cervical cancer because the human papilloma virus is so widespread. Usually when we find atypical cells on a pap smear, we reflexively test for hpv. If it is positive, then you do have a small risk for dysplasia or precancer, but if it is negative, you have almost no risk. If your hpv test is (+), you will need follow up. ...Read more
