In brief: Cervical cancer

In general, the 5 year survival for stage iva or b cervical cancer is 15-16%.
Healthier and younger patients generally do better. The treatment for an 84 yo may be too much to tolerate

In brief: Yes

Generally yes, so you should follow up on the results with your gastroenterologist.
You might need some prescriptions if it is positive.
