Hi dr I’m 36...

Hi dr I’m 36 I’ve had regular Pap smears since I was 19 I recently had the 5 year one with my dr of 15 years & I got a letter back saying , your recent Cervical Screening Test indicated the possibility of cellular changes which may require treatme???? Then on the same page it says you require referral to a specialist? I spoke to my dr and she wouldn’t tell me over the phone have I got Cervical cancer?? I’m really scared thanks Nicole x

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Yes I’ve had the same dr since I was 17 years old

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hello Nicole,

Since you have regular normal Pap smear, this is unlikely to be cervix cancer.

This is just superficial changes in the cervix which will require minor treatment done by gynecologist.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
