Chip, We spoke about a month ago about my abnormal vaginal

Hi Dr. Chip,We spoke about a month ago about my abnormal vaginal discharge/bleeding.I need your help. I continue to experience the bleeding after intercourse. Also, in between periods I experience intermittent amounts of vaginal discharge that contain brown stringy discharge in very small amounts.As I mentioned before my PAP test came back normal and so did my vaginal culture. They did not test for HPV. Should I get that test done too?I have been researching and a number of websites are saying that the number 1 sign of cervical cancer is bleeding between periods/after sex.I am sick with worry over this. I don't know what to do.

What are the symptoms of cervical cancer? In an early stage

What are the symptoms of cervical cancer? In an early stage would there be any signs? I have a fear of getting cancer and now I have been reading about cervical cancer. I have no symptoms (as far as I know of) but mycervix is lower than I think it should sometimes; It moves. And it's not at the end of my vagina. It's more off on the side wall I believe. And my cervix is kind of big. Is this all normal?

I'm scheduled for a vaginal ultrasound Jan 4th , I'm beyond worried and making myself sick. Would cancer cells throw off other blood work , meaning would there be any signs. In the blood work he did that something wasn't right ?

I've had an active HPV infection for a couple of months

I've had an active HPV infection for a couple of months causing a couple of genital warts, which were treated in an STD clinic. During the second control exam the doctor noticed a cervical lesion. I've got an appointment for cervical cancer and HPV screening but it's still 3 weeks till the appointment. Till then, I would like to know if it's possible that the cervical lesion/dysplasia has been there for a longer time but the doctor did not see it during the first two exams (since it's only a quick vaginal exam to check if there are internal warts, not full gyno exam) or can the low-risk HPV cause abnormal changes by time in the cervix, as well. It's been years since my last cervical cancer test and I'm worried.
