I have lump in my vagina and i get irregular periods. Are these the symptoms of cervical cancer ?

Hi. I went to the hospital today due to unexplained back pain in my lower left side they ran some test such as ( blood test and pee smaple) they couldn t find the course but said i was very sick, im going in for an ultra sound some time this week and also ment to get a pap smear and get some swaps taken to rule out any infections or diseases. The point of this post is that about 4 years ago i found a lump on the outside of my vigina its never gotten any bigger sometimes the lump gets smaller but then it ll go back to the same size, i have unnormal periods that seem to come alot, could i have cervical cancer or could it be something else? Im really worried about going to my appointment and also can pee samples show ceevial cancer? Thanks

Hi!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Cervical cancer can be easily detected by doing a PAP smear wherein cells are taken from the cervix and tested .Also symptoms of cervical cancer are post coital bleeding,excess bleeding,unusual fatigue etc,,Vaginal cancer doesnt stay like that for 4 years like lump growing and lessening .What you saw is a probably benign lump in the vagina.Take care.

hello
welcome to healthcare magic. do not worry . get a pap's smear done. if needed your gynaecologist will also do a hpv dna test. this is more reliable than a paps's smear. also one negative hpv dna means you dont have to get yourself tested for another 3 years. about the lump you feel in your vagina, most likely it is nothing serious to worry about. let your gynaecologist do a local pelvic examination and a sonography of the pelvis to find out. this will also help to rule out the cause of your abnormal periods.

I am at risk for pcos. I have irregular periods. About twice a year i will skip my period. My last cycle started april 27 and lasted 6 days. I had been staying hydrated. Then i skipped. About 5 weeks ago I started experiencing mild preg symptoms like nauseau and cramping and back pain but tested negative. I had been spotting brown and pink which isnt usual when i skip. I began bleeding an clotting july 5th. It was the worst ive ever cramped but no signs of m/c. I am not sure if i am or was pregnant. The thing that keeps bothering me is that i had slight cramping for several weeks and my breasts have changed size and color a bit and my veins are more blue. My bellybutton also seemed smaller possibly from bloating. My husband and I have been passively trying so I doubt its psychological. Could it be hormones. I was going to schedule an appointment but I dont want the drs to think i am crazy. What are the chances of me being pregnant? I would be 9 weeks.

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?

Hi, I have warts on my anus which my doctor has said its HPV :( my question is that the doctor gave me some cream to treat these warts (Aldara 5% cream) I started putting this stuff on which burns after applied for for the second time then after the 3rd or 4th time the burning is quite bad and when I wipe my self it feels like the skin is being torn away via sand paper, I have noticed because of this cream that I get thick yellow gunk that comes from most of the area of the anus and surrounding skin, does this mean in allergic to this cream or is all this pain and yellow infection normal? as I am worried this will lead to turning into cancer etc

I contracted HPV 6 months ago and I want to clean out my system and boost my immune system. I purchased a mineral cleanser for my colon, apple cidar vinegar tablets, echinacea & goldenseal for immune system, and a chlorophyll concentrate called chloroxygen to oxygenate the blood. Would you recommend taking these in a particular order for best results? Is chloroxygen a good product?
