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.

My symptoms are heartburn, lower back pain, irregular period, heavy discharge, hemroid, shortness of breath, stabing pain in chest/pelvic. I am a 15 year old female and my mother and sister had the first signs of cervical cancer. Could I possably have that? If not, which I hope not, what could be causing all of this?

I have just been told I may have an ectopic cervix as mucus was found on it during a routine sexual health check up. The tests have been sent off and I am awaiting the results but I am worried that this may be cervical cancer. Recently I had some bleeding after sex (which wasnt my period) and I have taken a pregnancy test which came back negative. I had a smear about a year ago and everything was normal. Can you tell me what this is?

Bladder issues: leaking pee and a burning sensation during peeing. Dear reader, I am a 17 year old girl experiencing some bladder issues lately. My problems started about 1 1/2 month ago: I noticed I had to go to the toilet a lot, and I also noticed a burning sensation during peeing. I had to change panties quite often as I would find that they got really wet (not because i was aroused, I think it was sticky discharge combined with pee, because it was yellow colored). Also, when I have sex, I constantly have the feeling i have to pee (but that might also be because of the position). Around the time these symptoms occurred I also felt a slightly painful and uncomfortable feeling during sex. I thought I had a bladder infection, but when I tested for that the results came back negative. THen I went to the doctor, who couldn t think of anything else besides a possible yeast infection or STD. I got tested for both, but yet again the results came back negative. The symptoms went away for about a month, however the past few days I noticed that I ve started leaking again. It has come to the point where I have to change panties at least 3 times a day. I noticed that the fluid is very clear and that it is pee. I also feel a burning sensation during peeing and sometimes even when I am just sitting I can just feel some pee leaking out of me. Some extra useful information: -I have been sexually active for some less than 2 years now, have had the same partner all along, never contracted an STD. -Me and my boyfriend have sex without a condom, however I am using birth control pills (have been using then since the start of me becoming sexually active, so almost 2 years now) -Have had a yeast infection a few months ago, had it treated by putting a ball of cream (forgot the name of the thing) inside my vagina for three nights. -I have had a lot of problems with bleeding during intercourse. It started around the 5th time I had sex, and lasted for about 1.5 years. (However, there was a period during the summer of 2011 that I didn t bleed for 2 or 3 months). For the past few months I have not bled, which might have been a result of me changing my birth control pills. -The doctor performed a pap smear on me in April 2011, because of the problems I had with bleeding during sex. the result: I have pap-2 and do have the HPV virus. I am scheduled to undergo another pap smear in November, to see if it has gotten worse or better. -I do perform kegel exercises on a regular basis, and have been doing so even before I started to become sexually active. I do not think that my muscles are the problem. -I did a pregnancy test last month. The result was that I am not pregnant. Thank you for taking the time to try and help me with my problems, I really appreciate it. Also, I would like to note that I live in the Netherlands and English is not my mother tongue. I apologize for any mistakes or unclear explanations, I have tied to state everything as clearly as I could, however I found it a bit difficult. best regards, Roxanne

hi, im 22 years old male, 5'6'', 165 lbs. My medical history is good. i dont have any health problems. im not allergic to anything i know of. i do smoke about 10 ciggerettes a day. i recently found a small cluster smaller than a dime in diameter of coliflower like bumps on my genitals just under my shaft on the sac connecting to the shaft of my penis. my concern is that i have genital warts or a type of hpv. is this a serious problem i have at hand? will these bumps go away? is there a medication to prevent bumps like this in the future? my partner has no idea of my situation and im afraid of rejection by her. is this a normal feeling if i do have a serious issue? how will this affect my sex life? please help im very concerned and thank you.
