Diagnosed with dysplasia, carcinoma in situ of cervices, had pain in the tailbone on sitting. Cancer?

HI I have a diagnosis- severe dysplasia and Carcinoma in situ of the cervisis. ( PAP 18). I had a conization two weeks ago, the result was, that the edges were clean. But for 4 months I have had pain in my tailbone. Only accurs while sitting. I dont feel any pain while walking, sitting, lifting things, going to the toilet, having sex etc. When leaning forward while sitting- again no pain. The harder the chair, the more pain. It just appeared at work in the middle of the day and does not improve. But I am still concerned. I am scared about the cancer , maybe its already everywhere. I am 32 years old. 1 child born in 2002. My job includes both- long periods of sitting and some weeks a lot on lifting heavy things.

Hello dear,

The biopsy showed carcinoma in situ with clean edges, which says that the cancer was removed completely. Still if it wasn't, then it would first present in vagina or uterus and the symptoms would be abnormal bleeding or dirty discharge.

Pain in the tailbone occurs in many people who have slightly longer tailbones and sit on hard surface, because the tailbone presses against the hard surface.

In my opinion, this pain is not because of cancer spread.
Try using a soft mattress when you sit on something hard. You can do hot fomentation for pain relief. I'm sure the pain will be relieved. If it still persists, then you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hope I have answered your query.
