Your : Your best option at this time is to seek care at your local county hospital. They will base the amount you pay on your income and other factors, therefore if you are out of work then you will likely pay little to nothing. Also county hospitals are usually teaching hospitals associated with large university hospitals, this means that they have a wide variety of specialists, including gyn/oncology, which is what you need.

Carcinoma in situ: Infection of the cervix by the human papilloma virus (hpv) is associated with precancerous lesions and cancer. Some people confuse precancerous lesions (dysplasia) with actual cancer. It is important to know that regular pap tests will detect precancerous cells that can be monitored or treated.

Is it true you can get cervical cancer from starting sex at a young age? I started at 14 and only have one partner.We are both HPV free.

Please make sure you are seen by your gyn for routine exams and may consider a vaccine such as gardisil. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Possible: It is possible to contract hpv with only one exposure. Hpv is associated with over 99% of cases of cervical cancer - so one could get hpv by having sex once and eventually develop cervical cancer as a result of the hpv. 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
