i'm going 2 assume u did not have paps for awhile for CIN III takes some time to develop.No it doesn't mean u have cancer but if left untreated it could very well go there!Next step colposcopy and then follow what doc says.I had CIN I and had it biopsied/cryoed with follow up paps!
Thanks for responding. Actually I have always gone for my Paps once a year. The sad part about it is a year ago my pap came back normal. I have been going to OBGYNs for the past year and a half because of abnormal bleeding. Which they did all sorts of tests for STDS and etc and I was told evrything was ok. Nothing. They advised me that I had Endometrial Polyps and did a D&C in Feb. But after that the bleeding continued, my ovaries started hurting and still do. I changed doctors because that doctor did not seem to care like it was all in my head. I went to a new doctor who said the same thing I have a polyp endometrial. So I had another D&C in July. After that my whole area started hurting, Ovaries, stomach and feels like IBS. I have gone to a gastro doctor who did all sorts of test , cat scans w/and w/o contrast small bowel seris and nothing. The bleeding got worse. I was still continueing to see the second OBGYN and she told me PCOS. Which the endro provider told me that I could not have because the hormone levels were fine. She said that doctor did not even test the right Hormones. So I decided to go to ALBANY Med providers in hopes that they could help with all that. But they discovered this. So I have no idea what is going on with me. But I hope that I may have found a better doctor. I have two OBGYNS just turn away from me because I honestly think they had no clue after a while and gave up. And honestly if I did not mention I think maybe I need a pap this time, which was not a full year since the last one they would not have found this. I am only 29 years old. But cancer runs in the family. Female and other cancers. I just lost my brother to Colon cancer and my father died at 37 from Brain cancer. You would not happen to have any clues??
As i was reading this i wondered if a family history of female and others and u answered my question.Sounds like ur with the right docs now!Please keep us posted.Do u know if ur mother took a drug called DES-Diethylsilbestrol?they used this from 1950-1960's to promote clotting after a miscarriage.It was banned in the USA in 1971.My mom took this b4 me.I was told by docs and lot of info on net that this has been found to cause cervical problems in the daughters of the mothers who took it.
Actually my grandmother had female cancer. I believe that they told her it was endrometrial but it went all through the female organs. My mom had to have a hysterectomy, she did have problems conceving and delivering with both my brother and me. I will check with her to see if they gave her that drug. I know that the genetic counsleor said I have a high risk of getting endrometrial cancer because of my fathers brain tumor and brother colon cancer are linked to that type of cancer. Very confusing. I am going for a Cone biopsyps on the 8th. I will keep you posted. Thanks for responding. Keep in touch.
well u answered my questions and urs....ur genetics have been stacked against u girl with all this cancer and the women with theirs.So glad ur aggressive and have found the right med group/doctor to properly monitor and take care of this.The best 2 u on the 8th..please keep us posted!
The cone bio was not as bad as I thought. Pain wise. I am going for the results on the 24th. I was reading something about D&C can cause Dysplasia. Did you know that? My last D&C in July they did a cervix BIO and the report stats no dysplasia. I am so confused. I figured I will look further into that when I know the DX. I will keep u posted.
See?u did fine!i never heard that a D@C can cause dysplasia..but anything is within the realm of possibility.i had my post LEEP pap 12-17.Had LEEP 8-9-07.Pap was clean of hpv cells but i hafta get paps now every 4 mos.for first year.I was very happy,have had bad paps for a year.so when do u get ur results?usually within 10 biz days?
Hi, I came across to some of your respons for tl675 from a couple of months ago....I was wondering if you can tell me how is it possible for me to be diagnosed CIN III after a LEEP biopsy result??? I have too been going to all my yearly OBGYN appointments...they all have been normal until this years' app... I thought CIN III took some time to develop (first mild, then moderate, then severe). How did this happend so fast??? I'm schedule for a cold-cone biopbsy next weak and since i'm done having kids I'm thinking of just getting the hysterectomy instead.... I know that if I don't I have risk of this coming back or even of cone biopsy not being enough to remove everything... What should I do???
And again, how did my dysplasia become CIN III... when i never even knew i had CIN I??? your comments will be greatly appreciated...
I was diagnosed with CIN I, II, and III, back in 1984. It was my first pap smear after having my daughter. She was 5 month old at the time. I was also found to be about 6 week preg at the time. I choose to do nothing and have the baby. By the time I delivered my son, the disease had progressed. I had a hysterectomy. It was found that I had primary ovarian cancer. The cervix was also involved. I am fine today with only having one relapse. I found it hard to believe that all the pap smears I had before my children were all normal. I had no problems with my first pregnancy. No signs of any CIN. I still go every year for my pap smears, as they tell me it can reoccur on the vaginal cuff. I have also had 2 Pet scans to check for hot spots. Clear so far. I al of you lady's luck. Please stay on top of your health. I was very persistent after my son was born and did every kind of treatment they offered. I am still here 28 years later. God bless. By the way mine was genetics.
