Is this cervical cancer?

I was diagnosed with HPV about 16 years ago and was treated for it including cauterization on my cervics. I've always had regular periods and have had normal yearly paps. I had my period this month, it lasted 3 days, it's normally about 5 days. About 5 days later I started having light bleeding, with a brownish discharge(smelling a little bad) and then have had light bleeding ever since, it's now been about 4 days. I haven't had a pap since 9/2002(I know I'm bad), I'm almost 39 and was wondering if this could be a sign of cervical cancer? Thanks so much for any info/advice.

Re: Is this cervical cancer?

You know no one can answer that, dimplegurl. And you know you have to see your ob/gyn. Probably a lot of us DO know what it is like to terrified, and to have to wait. I know that, and I also know that any one thing (symptom) can be many things (conditions/diseases). Try NOT to spend your energy worrying if that worrying will not be doing you some concrete good.

Monday morning you are on the phone, 'kay?

Re: Is this cervical cancer?

Tommorrow I'm going for my consultation on the Leep Procedure, My biopsy came back saying that I had Hgsil (severe dysplasia), I'm not quite sure of the progression rate of this disease, although only last year I had a normal pap smear, However for the past 12 months I have had a tremendous amount of break through bleeding, even though I've been on birth control for 7 years and tried every type of hormonal birth control out there I still bleed (heavy) while I'm on my active pills of the birth control. Usually for about 3weeks out of the month. Also I have severe cramps that make it impossible to get out of bed sometimes, I also have shooting pains in the cervical area even when I'm not bleeding, as well as lower back pain. I also bleed after, and sometimes during sex and douching. Starting in May I started having problems with High blood pressure. Then starting in July I started having problems with urination, (I know I need to go but I cant make myself, sometime running my hand under water helps and other times I just have to keep trying every ten minutes or so. It sometimes can take me an hour to pee). I don't know if I should tell my doctor about this because about 5 years ago I had a massive infection in the pelvic region after a laparoscopy, which mean't that I had a foley cathater for about 8 weeks, when I finally got it removed I had to teach myself how to pee again. So until this weekend I had assumed that my problems urinating were do to my history, and not worth wasting the doctors time over, but I'm starting to think maybe I should mention it just in case I can't make myself pee after this leep procedure. What do you think?

Re: Is this cervical cancer?

I had brownish blood spotting and irregular periods for a while and found that I had what's called a "chocolate cyst" on one of my ovaries which is where some of the blood from your period don't get flushed out and creates a sack like thing that fills with more and more old blood each period. The brownish spotting or darker blood is a sign of this and can be detected by ultrasound. I had tenderness in the area of the cyst and would have never known I had one if I didn't have a pelvic exam... I had pain when he pressed hard in that area.....
My doc said a lot of people get these and that most of the time a little extra hormones in the system will cause it the break up and clear out so he put me on birth control for 2 months and then did another ultra sound.. It was gone and I haven't had any brownish or dark blood since then.
Good luck!
