I was diagnosed with Mild dysplasia about 6 years ago(which I know little about)and was treated right away. I have had a normal pap smear each year. However, I was recently diagnosed with IBS and I have read that Ovarian Cancer can mask the symptoms of IBS so Ovarian cancer should be tested for so that it may be ruled out. Also when I went to the dermatologist I was told I had a cyst near my genital area and I was asked if my pap smear was normal and it was but I can't help but think about what I read about Ovarian Cancer.
Whoa, cyst??? on what? Displasia is an abnormal cellular change, not cancer, but can be the precursor to it. I know, I had a "bad" pap nearly 15 years ago and had cryosurgery plus paps every 3 months for 2 years! While everything went well, I took it very seriously. Listen to your body.
