Re: Just had a copscopy
It is very scary to hear the word cancer mentioned at all but it is really not as serious as it sounds - providing you have the treatment completed and always keep up to date with your pap smear tests.
Pre-cancerous cells are caused by a virus called HPV and if you have this virus, you will have it for the rest of your life. If you take care of yourself though, it can become dormant in your body and not cause you any health problems.
Having the pre-cancerous cells removed is not pleasant by any means but it is all over within a few minutes.
