ascus- hpv+

Totally caught off guard when I found out that I tested positive for HPV and my pap found ASCUS cells. Now after reading countless articles and conducting countless web searches , I'M FREAKED!!! I have a colposcopy scheduled in a few weeks but, I'm convinced they are going to find something worse!

Of course, my Dr. trys to reassure me but, the colposcopy will tell.

Is anyone else going through this? I've read similar stories but, no one posts results!!

Re: ascus- hpv+

Well, the type of your hpv could give you more information on the seriousness of the diagnosis.
certain type of hpv are more aggressive than others. Many ascus and hpv+ cases resolve and are not considered high risk for developing cancer. Get a copy of your report and ask your dr to explain. Its your right. Good luck, and breathe.
