Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
This lump on the cervix - this is called a Nabothian cyst - this is VERY normal - we see these all the time - think of these as a 'pimple' on the cervix.
A nabothian cyst just like a pimple can pop and hence can bleed/ spot.
Other things that can cause this is a possible fibroid or even a polyp too.
but also when spotting only during urination this could be an Urinary tract infection (UTI) or a possible urinary tract stone.
Also something that is round and smooth - this is NOT concerning - as a precancer / cancer would not feel that way (just in case you were worried about a possible cancer).
Now, since you are 45, a very common thing too would be a polyp - so a pelvic exam by an ob/gyn would be able to see this on an exam and if a polyp is there - it can be removed at the time of the exam - it is very easy to remove and does NOT cause pain either when being removed.
Are you there?

No, cervical cancer does not appear ROUND and smooth
there is SO much wrong information on the internet that scares so many people
this is either a nabothian cyst which I think it is or a polyp but Nothng worse
And with a normal PAP in 10/2011 - this is NOT going to be cancer - cancer just does not develop that quickly
that is more likely a nabothian cyst - not a cancer
Can just does NOT develop that quickly after a normal PAP - it never does
Yes it can cause spotting
But a fibroid and or a polyp can do the same - and these are not concerning either.
so the ONLY way to know which you have is with a pelvic exam and a possible ultrasound - but you really do not need to worry about this.
well do not worry
I wish you well
and a simple exam and ultrasound will clarify all of this.
