My 26-year-old daughter has had 'mild to moderate dysplasia' this past year. Her doctor is keeping up every three months with pap tests, and she had a colposcopy in December of 2011 which was negative. Two pap tests ago, there was 'nothing there'. This last one showed 'it was back' as the doctor phrased it.
I am a two-time ovarian cancer survivor. I told my daughter to ask for a CA125 blood test next time. I realize it won't be necessarily indicative of anything at this point, but I think she should get a baseline number by which future tests can be gauged, at least regarding the ovaries. Currently, no symptomology.
I would appreciate any comments/suggestions any of you may have. Prayers to all of you survivors and caregivers. I've been on both sides.
