Read what others have to say about how cervical cancer and HPV have touched their lives.
I was told that I had cervical cancer on the 4th of Jan, 2012 - I went thru ten (10) weeks of radiation and six (6) weeks of chemo theraphy - my life is not the same and will never be the same.
My new way of life is to become more inform of the way to detect any type of cancer within a women's body and to help other women look for the stages and signs of something being wrong so that they can seek medical attention and to make sure that the yearly pap and mammograph's are the first priority. fo

Her backpains got were she could not hardly walk. Going back and forth to the Er. IT WAS DISCOVERY AFTER IT WAS CANCER . sHE WAS TO A CANCER SPECIALIST , and it was diagnoised as Stage 3 grade B CANCER. She never will go to a ob/gyn . I go every year to my ob/gyn.

I had stage IIB cc 18 years ago and I want to share my story to help educate women on the signs and symptoms of CC and to be vigilant of their bodies and know when something is wrong.
I'm 24 years old and after almost 3 years of not going to the gyn I was diagnosed with stage 3 dysplasia. Just the thought of what couldve been the results if I had waited more time shocks me every morning when I wake up. I got my cryosurgery and now I have to wait 6 months. The emotional and physical effects of all these tests, procedures, and waiting has been difficult to deal with but researching and reading other stories is comforting. Regular check ups is the key here ladies!
I care because it's very important thing I'm a medical student & study about cervical cancer really it's very dangerous especial if not diagnostic early
On October 20, 2004 my Mother passed away from cervical caner. After I was born she never went to the doctor - is it's not broke don't fix it. She hemorrhaged one day and the ER told her to go to her well womens doctor to get "cleaned out." Upon going to the doctor, he found a tumor and sent her to the hospital. After cemo and radiation treatments she was sent home with hospice. From the time she found out to the time she passed only 7 months passed. Im hoping her story will help someone.
I was diagnosed with HPV in 2009. I have never missed a yearly PAP. This year in June I had 5 spots on my cervix. I had a LEEP procedure done and cancer was detected. I am scheduled for a hysterectomy on August 2, 2011. If I hadn't been faithfull with my yearly PAPS, I might not be this lucky! Early detection is the key. I am praying that the results after the surgery are great!

I am 25 years old and I was diagnosed hpv just a few months ago. I Was very surprised when the doctor told me. I am now very afraid of developing cervical cancer. I have two children ages 6 and a 5months. I dont ever want to leave them with out a mother so i will do whatever I can so my body can fight the virus. I heard that over time women diagnosed with hpv do develop cervical cancer. I am trying to stay as strong as I can and hoping that God will hear my prayers.
I am writing you because i have had cervical cancer twice in my life so far once was 1987 and the second time was 1998 and here recently November 2010 I had a abnormal-pap my doctor wants to see me again in 6 months. I have a 17 year old daughter and I know how scarey it can be, the first time I had it frozen the second time I had cone surgery, so right now I am scared again because the thought of not really knowing and because I have a daughter that I love very deeply with all my heart.
