I have just been diagnosed with Cervical Cancer and am stil reeling from the news. And though I have never missed my annual exam and pap smear, my cancer has grown so fast between checkups, surgery is not even an option. I have stage III A! I felt perfectly safe getting the annual pap smears and thought if anything would ever be found, it would be found early enough to take care of it before it turned into full fledged cancer. This has really blind sided me and my family. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
