Can vaginal odor be a sign of cervical cancer? Ever since I had the colposcopy (came back benign), I have this odor. I used to have an odor come and go but since the colposcopy, it seems to stay with me and it's a different smell. The odor is like it was just after the colposcopy. I'm going to my doctor in 2 weeks for a 6 month follow-up pap. I'm going to tell her about it. Any suggestions?
