Re: Cervial Cancer HPV question
I was sent to the gyn by my primary care doctor because my cervix looked like something was wrong. She did a colposcopy/biopsies and they showed abnormal cells. After 6 months she did more biopsies, a pap and an HPV test.
The Pap and the HPV tests came back negative, but the cervix still showed abnormal cells. I had a third colposcopy/biopsies, Pap and HPV test.......
this time they all came back negative, so the abnormal cells took care of themselves. I was told HPV was the cause of most of the abonormal cells, but people without HPV can also get them. They keep a closer watch on the patients with HPV because it increases the chances of cervical cancer.
