I just got the diagnosis and have my first appt tomorrow with the GYN Oncologist so I have no idea what treatment I am facing. Thankfully it hasn't spread and is classified as "non-invasive". I'm also a nurse and had never heard about this cancer before. I actually made an appt to see my GYN for "warts" and almost cancelled the appt twice (out of embarrassment) but my hubby MADE me go. I'm so thankful that he did. I had a hysterectomy 17 years ago and NEVER imagined any further problems. My last GYN exam was last year and the spots were not detected at that time. I have not had multiple partners, nor has my husband. It's kind of ironic that the nurses that I work with a) don't have a clue what this is, b) don't have a clue how you "catch" it and c) can't really comfortably discuss it. Anyway, just wanted to vent and post a note. Thanks for listening....
