What are the symptoms of cervical cancer?

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?

Hello
Health care magic user
I understood your concern and My opinion is that you should not worry , Actually in early stage of cervical cancer there are not having any obvious symptoms except occasional post coital bleeding, but in late stage patient is having symptoms of urinary and Alimentary problems,weight loss, loss of appetite etc. And ya your smear one year back was negative so there is a very less posibility, I would advise please wait till report becasue early stage of cervical cancer is curable so don't worry

I hope my answers help you
Thanks
