Forum Name: Cervical Cancer

Question: Severe Cercial Displasia/Possible Carcinoma in Situ

 CarlyAnne1 - Thu Oct 05, 2006 12:05 pm

I'm a 26 year old female HPV positive. I've been having abnormal paps since 1997. I've been through several LEEPS/Cones. My latest pap came back severe cervical displasia with possible carcinoma in situ. What I want to know is, why can't they clear this up? Now I could possibly have cancer things just keep getting worse as the years go by. I just keep having surgeries and nothing helps. What should I do? Is there something else I haven't tried?

User avatar Hi CarlyAnne1,
I am sure having repeated procedures can be very frustrating and even discouraging. It you consider from the point of view that this actually has helped because had you not had the procedures done in a timely manner rather than the results being severe cervical dysplasia with possible carcinoma in situ they may have very well been invasive cervical carcinoma. Good luck and our best wishes.
