Went to the hospital yesterday as i've got moderate abnormal cervical cells.As much as i don't want it to be worse then it is i have a really bad feeling. I had a leep 11 yrs ago and that seemed to do the trick been fine until now. Get to the hospital, had to have a biospy instead this time....shock my goodness was i scared really hurt...i knew my cervix was dodgy, could feel lumps on it and when i looked at screen could see that about 3/4 of my cevix was abnormal plus a lump at 12 oclock and six oclockthe same areas he took the biopsies from.i've got to wait 2/3 weeks now, thought it would be done and dusted yesterday. Having my tonsils out next week aswell...everything seems crappie. anyway else had simular experience and what was the outcome?

I have had a Colposcopy and a loop excision for abnormal cells.

All was fine, the biopsy came back negative.

Your cervix can have damage from childbirth, this can cause scarring and look quite bad as it is normally such a smooth shape. Think of when you bite your mouth inside by accident, the lump looks terrible.

It could just be scaring from that, try not worry. Fingers crossed for you smile
