Atypical endocervical cells of unknown significance.
I recently got a abnormal Pap smear result, it said "abnormal endocervical cells of unknown significance" I completely lost it... My previous pelvic pain reached new extremes, some bladder pain.. Doctors keep reassuring me it will be fine. I lost 5 kg in the last 5 days due to no appetite... At all.... No sleep.... Extreme depression and anxiety..
I have a 2.5 yr old daughter. I'm scheduled for a colposcopy this coming Monday and hope to dear God it turns out to be benign.. What were your experiences with this result? Thanks
Just to update my situation. I was extremely nervous and went in for the colposcopy. The doctor took two biopsies and told me that I have ectropion which is when glandular cells are found on the outer part of the cervix. I waited one (very nervous and depressed) week and found that I have no abnormalities. Only some benign changes. I will need a pap in six months.
If you get the agus result. Please don't get too scared by Internet studies etc. they simply say (in scary terms) that you need to be thoroughly checked. Some doctors confuse this result with ASCUS and don't refer to colposcopy. Most likely you will have a normal result. But if they do find something you are still lucky as it will have been caught early. Everyone is treatable :) please don't stress as much as I did.
