Hi- I am a 21 year old college student who is president of her sorority, a campus leader and an aspiring law student. I was recently diagnosed with carcinom-in situ. I had my first abnormal pap a year ago but was told it wasn^t a big deal. This year I had a repeat in February followed by a biopsy the following week. I missed my follow up appointment do to miscommunication and decided that the probaly meant nothiing was wrong. Absoultly not, God told me that I needed to check things out so I called and rescheduled my apointment for the first week of June. It turns out that I had CIN 3 and needed to have a leep. I debated about tellng my parents becuase they would freak out. I am very responsible and have not had sex but my father of course freaked out when he read things on the internet. I had my leep and she said that she took a large amount of tissue from my cervix. I get my results tomorrow and am freaked out beyond everything. I have been researching things and there are others like me but how does it happen and what are the chances that I have cervical cancer. It apparently has progressed very quickly so there is no telling. Please pray and gvie me advise or share yourstories.
