Hi everyone.......I have a question that like so many I seem to get conflicting answers on, and it may be just that everyones personal situation is different. I am 54yrs old, and 2yrs post treatment for anal cancer and 1yr post treatment for breast cancer. I feel great! My mom died of ovarian cancer and so I had genetic testing for mutated BRAC gene since there is a relation between breast and ovarian cancer,....... I do not carry it.
My question is in regards to how often do other women in my age group have a pap test after pelvic radiation? It seems our chances for cervical cancer may be increased due to treatment. I already have some concerns about my higher risk for ovarian cancer. I have an appointment coming up later this month so will ask my doctor, but just wondering on others and pap tests.
Thanks.........Wisconsin is in the high 60's today!!!! Heat wave this weekend!!!!! Lol
