Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
It may arise from the cervix/uterus or the urinary tract.
The next step would be to do an ultrasound scan of the abdomen and pelvis to look at the bladder and uterus/cervix.
Depending on the finding, next step/s can be planned.
Other tests that would be necessary are urine analysis and culture to start with.
In order of necessity, specialists who could provide help are gynecologist and urologist, if you have direct access to them.
Otherwise, pls. get evaluated by your general practitioner initially who will refer, whenever necessary.
Please take medical advice and get well soon.
Regards
DR GS

I will do all those things. But I am scared it is cancer. Could it also be something minor?

Hi
Welcome back.
It could still be a minor illness like infection in the urinary tract or the genital tract.
Cancer is considered, as suspicion leads to early diagnosis and possible cure.
Kindly take medical help and get well soon,

I am getting a uterine biopsy soon and have a very low tolerance for pain. I have never had children and my cervix is tight. I am 59 years old. I was give Cytotec to take the night before. I understand this can cause severe cramping. When I did get my period before menopause the cramps were severe - I had to take heavy doses of Advil 5 days BEFORE it started and then Darvon on the first 2 days. I thought for the biopsy I would take Mobic 5 days before and then Percocet a hour before the biopsy ( I have discussed this with my dr.) Any other suggestions? I am a wreck! Thank you!
