I do not have cancer but was recently diagnosed with HPV. I am scheduled to receive a coposcopy but I am absolutely scared. I am only 18 years old and haven^t told my family yet. I am not sure how I should tell them due to the fact that they may judge me. I pray everyday that this HPV doesn^t turn into cancer. A couple of years ago, I lost my grandfather to cancer and all I could do is cry when I found out the news. I am really scared, but at the same time trying to cope with this. I^m not sure how or when I caught HPV but I^m willing to go the extra miles to have it somewhat cured.
