Re: 10yrs normal Paps to cancer
Welcome to my life! I've been having paps since I was 15. I am now 26 and just had my first abnormal one in October (adenocarcinoma in situ). I've had 2 cold knife conizations to remove the areas, and found out I actually had stage 1a1 cervical cancer.
From what I know, adenocarcinoma is a lot harder to detect than squamous cell carcinoma on paps. What is likely is that while cells were changing (dysplasia), our paps were coming back "normal."
I wish you all the best! I just got the "all clear" last week. I'm hoping to try to start a family soon....
