Hi, I'm 25 and just been diagnosed with CIN 3 after my first pap smear. I have a test booked in for 2 weeks. I will be having a biopsy and i just wanted to know how long it will take to get the results? Also what is the likely hood i have cancer? Any other information about treatment would be appreciated. Many Thanks :)

I tested positive for ASCUS on my pap, so I had a colposcopy done. During my colp I had one biopsy taken. At the end of my appointment I asked the gynecologist when I should expect results, and she said in 2-3 weeks; however, I got a call yesterday (exactly one week after my colp) that the results were in and I went to the office to discuss them this morning. I hope this helps with the timing question. Good luck with everything!
