Hello. do you have any bleeding after intercourse?
It is great that you have had previous normal smears.
have you ever been told you have HPV
Good, that is also a good sign.
The important things about cervical lumps that are nasty, is that often the initial treatment to remove it is actually all the treatment you need. They will not know the actual nature of the lump without removing it and sending it for analysis. If it turned out the lump was cancerous, then the next thing would be to check that there was no evidence of spread.
So a question to ask today is: will I need any scans to check for local spread?
Also, how long will it take to hear. Usually analysis of a lump takes 2 weeks.
During pregnancy then we try and minimise digital and speculum examinations where possible to avoid triggering early labour. It is also possible that the bump was not easily visible at the cervix during your two examinations. The presence of mucus and changes during pregnancy also affect visulisation.
There is a bump called a nabothian cyst which can appear on cervix. so it is possible that this bump is entirely harmless, especially with your previous negative smears
Try not to worry, but don't be afraid to ask questions. They will have a good loop and may discuss taking a sammple or biopsy depending on appearance,
Sorry good look!
