Why did it not show the earlier stages of precancerous cells in one of my regular pap visits?
How fast can it spread?
I also have recently been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in situ, after undergoing a LLETZ biopsy in July. Mine happened pretty quickly as well, all my previous pap tests in the past 10 years had been all-clear. The bad news came as a shock to me also, especially being that I was very low risk (going by the factors that increase the risk of cervical cancer).
Apparently it can develop very quickly, and go from a good test to a bad one in just one leap
The only symptom I now realise I was experiencing over the last year or so was bleeding after sex, however I did not realise at the time that my body was trying to tell me something was wrong - just wrongly assumed we had taken things a little too rough.
I'm sorry you are also going through this. I wish I had more answers for you, hopefully somebody else here may be able to help you more. I hope that your results end up being better than you fear, and its easily treatable. Will be keeping track of your journey.
All the best,
