You have pelvic discomfort with history of spotting in recent times and you're on your early forties.
You're awaiting ultrasound result and think it may be cervical cancer.
Don't panic and await for the results to come.

If it is cervical cancer and in the early stages it is completely treatable.
Spotting may be due to many reasons and cervical cancer is one of the reasons.
