I was hoping someone could help me. I have just got back from the Drs which I went to due to 8ish months of bleeding dark blood about 2 weeks prior to every period, also got worse when I went for a number 2 or strained in anyway.
Anyway at the exam she said she needed to call another GP in as she saw a red area next to my cervix on the vaginal wall, it bled from the touch of the speculum. They took swabs which also caused bleeding and they said they would refer me to gynaecologist, I heard them taking outside the curtain and words such as quick appointment etc were mentioned, I did ask her if this was to do with cervical cancer as I've had more than 1 abnormal smear before along with various biopsies and a letz procedure but she's lovely and didn't want to worry me so she just said it's probably nothing don't worry. The appointment time was 4-6 weeks which is not emergency cancer screening but the next level.
Now as mentioned I've had abnormal smears, 3 or 4 biopsies and 1 letz, my last smear came back as OK so I was finally put back on 3 years smears.
Upon reading about vaginal cancer it says it very rare and more commonly cervical cancer can migrate into the vagina.
my question is has anybody had a similar situation, has an examination brought up a red sore patch near anyone's cervix and what was it, did you have further tests?
I don't need reassurance as such I just want to know what I'm dealing with. I like to be mentally prepared. I want to know my stuff by the time I get to see gynaecologist. With current symptoms of pelvic pain plus bleeding plus history of smears plus now this red bleeding patch I'm thinking it's probably not great but I'd like to be pre informed.
