Hi all 2020 really is pants, one thing after another. My period was irregular last cycle and I've been bleeding between periods with pelvic and back pain. I rang the docs this morning and she saw me this evening. I had an abnormal smear two years ago but they couldn't see anything on the colposcopy. Anyway I've been to the docs she literally looked for 5 seconds and told me to get dressed. She can see a lump/growth raised area where I'm bleeding from and has referred for an urgent biopsy. I am panicking, has anyone had this and it been okay?

I haven't had this OP but I didn't want to read and run. You must be really worried. How long for the referral? Can you go private?

Yes I had this last year. Similar symptoms - although had bleeding after sex rather than mid-cycle, plus cycle was irregular.

Doctor examined me and said the same as to you - that he could see a growth that was bleeding. I was referred under the two week referral system and had a colpscopy. The nurse confirmed straight away that it was a cyst that was in the process of bursting. Nothing to worry about at all. These cysts are really common apparently although I'd never heard of them.

I was so so worried after seeing my doctor as he'd seemed very concerned by what he'd seen. Nurse said that they get lots of referrals as doctors can't always get a good look, whereas they are set up to do a proper examination and it's better to err on the side of caution.

I'd say that the fact that the colpscopy you had a couple of years ago was fine is really reassuring. My appointment came through really quickly so hopefully yours will too. I'm not going to say don't worry, as I know that's easier said than done but be reassured that an urgent referral doesn't always mean the worst.

Thank you for replying, two weeks at the most. It's been an awful couple of months I'm sure its nothing to worry about but I feel like I'm having a bit big an emotional breakdown x

I was bleeding - nurse did a check and called the doctor in coz my cervix looked dodgy. I was referred immediately to a gynecologist - the GP called me with an emergency appointment time as I was still driving back from the GP's office. Crapped myself for the 5 days until the appointment. The consultant told me within a few minutes that all was fine. I know it's worrying, but there is a good chance it will not be anything serious.
