Fuck cancer. You’re going to kick its ass to the curb.

“The tests for the polyp came back for positive for adenocarcinoma in situ. At the age of 30 and seven months after I just got married, I am told I have invasive cervical cancer. “

An adenocarcinoma in situ is an early cancer that has not (yet) become invasive.  Did they use the term “in situ”?

@FeelingVeryBlue:  First of all -hugs- …I can’t even imagine how you must be feeling right now. I do understand how it is to feel let down and overcharged by doctors and for this reason I also primarily to go Planned Parenthood and am *very* grateful for them, more so every year. You are so lucky you caught on early. And while I don’t know how early it is I feel that it’s safe to say that it *is* early if you weren’t having any other major symptoms. My sister-in-law and her mother have a history of cervical/ovarian cancers (multiple manifestations) and they were both lucky to have kicked it’s butt. Fortunately there are so many resources out there for support, and if you need us everyone on WeddingBee is always here (seriously, it’s sad) and we can definitely take some time out of our silly planning to lend an ear. Sending love and best wishes your way..

I am so so sorry you’re going through this. All my fingers and toes are crossed for you! My friend, who is 24, recently went through treatment for thyroid cancer, and I know she said the toughest part was telling friends and family, and seeing people get upset. Know that their reactions may be hard to take at first, but they love you and are just going to be scared. It sounds like you have a great attitude about kicking this thing in the butt, and I’m sure you will!!

I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I am also super proud of you for being so strong and courageous. I can not even begin to imagine what you are going through but I hope it helps to know that a country girl from Texas is sending prayers up for you and your family <3

@FeelingVeryBlue:  I am so sorry that this is happening!  It’s strange that your doctor didn’t find this sooner.  I have been having paps every 6 months for three years due to HPV and only just had a LEEP procedure to remove a CIN-3 lesion.  I couldn’t imagine finding out I had a polyp that my doctor missed!  I would probably be changing doctors as a result.

This makes me especially worried for the new rules that recommend delaying regular pap smears until 30.  I am 29, who knows what mine would be if I had let it alone until them or gotten pregnant which can speed along the cancer.

God luck with treatment and staging.  I hope the cone biopsy is all that is needed for you to be cancer free.  You definitely still have a good chance of carrying a pregnancy after a cone biopsy.  Thankfully in a majority of cases a trachelectomy or hysterectomy are pretty much the worst case scenario and death from cervical cancer has dropped significantly.

When I was being staged my FH and I had a lot of discussions about having children and our options should I need to have a hysterectomy or trachelectomy in order to remove the cancer.  He and I decided that if we couldn’t get pregnant naturally that we weren’t meant to be parents.  While we like the idea of adoption, it just isn’t for us.  We would like a child but we also really enjoy our lifestyle without children so we decided it would be a bit of a relief because it would take the pressure off having kids.
