I'm 23 years old went to the emergency gynaecologist service as I noticed pain when pressing inside my vagina but I've never had any bleeding before now, she did an examination and found that there was some calcification or something on my cervix, she said it did bleed a little when she pressed it. Took a swab and sent it away.
They also found some blood/infection and proteins in my urine so I'm now absolutely terrified. It does burn when I pee occasionally but not all the time. She said I need to go back to my GP and request a cancer smear but I don't understand why she didn't do it there and then? I told her I was absolutely panicked over it thinking the worst, end stage cervical cancer and she couldn't really offer more than "it doesn't look too bad don't worry yourself yet unnecessarily" but that's what they have to say, right? Even if it was very bad she's not allowed to tell me? I know that cervical cancer affects the kidneys and so now I've just been left to stew it all over alone till Monday, absolutely thinking the worst.
I was at the hospital I'd be referred to if I do have cancer so I don't understand why she couldn't do something more for me there and then rather than have me go back to the GP and send a smear test away? Surely it's going to take longer that route especially when time is of the essence? I'm so scared. Looking back I feel like maybe there were just signs I missed or didn't think anything of, I don't know. I'm sick with worry
