White spots on transvaginal ultrasound

Hi. I recently went to see a new gynecologist because I wanted my hormones checked. I am 39 and am having perimenopausal symptoms, nights sweats, hot flashes and emotions like crazy (i'm not typically very emotional even before my period). I also told him about my periods, which last two weeks, first week heavy, stop for a day or two, then I wipe pink for another week. Then it starts all over again in 6 - 10 days (21-25 day cycle). My last gyno who delivered my last child told me that after you have 3 kids your periods are wacky, so I just contributed it to that. But when the night sweats etc started, I decided I'd better get checked out. I have had regular paps with my primary doctor since my son's birth. In 1994, I had an abnormal pap, ob/gyn said it was pre-precancerous and it was HPV. But after four paps in two years, he said I was clear.
So, back to my recent visit. Doc said he wanted to do a transvaginal ultrasound which he did right then. My cervix measured 7 x 9 cm and he saw white spots on it, which should not be there. After I got dressed, he came in and said that there is something wrong, he didn't know what it is, but there is a small chance it could be cancer. He said he wants to do a D&C with Hystoscopy to bioposy the cervix and anything else he sees in my uterus. This is now scheduled for July20th. After I left the office, I remembered about the 1994 pap and then a phone call I had gotten (six years ago)from my husband's ex-wife after she had to have a hysterectomy because of HPV which she blamed on my husband. Anyhow, now I am worried that this has been growing in me for 12 years and I can think of nothing else. If anyone has had the same results on a transvaginal ultrasound(the white spots), please let me know what came of it or if you can give me any insight into what else this could possibly be??? The doctor didn't give any other indications of what else it could be, just that he didn't know and it could be cancer. Help???
Thank you, in advance, for any replies.
