My mom was just diagnosed yesterday at 61 years old with cervical cancer. When I sat there listening to the Dr deliver the news I felt numb. I thought this cant be happening. She had pre cancer cells about 16 years ago that were lasered off. She then went for her follow up and told they were able to remove everything and she was good to go. Little did I know she had not had another pap since then. She started bleeding after being in menoapuse for many years. She had a pap and it came back abnormal. She then had another test to see if she had cancer. They called her yestarday and told her to come in and bring a family memeber. We knew that was not a good sign. She is handling it a lot better than me. I dont let her see how worried I am but all I can do is sit at home and cry. This is my mom. :( she goes to see on gyno/oncologist Tuesday to discuss what to do next and then they will make another appointment to go from there. If anybody has any advice to offer me I would love to hear from you. I just keep thinking...has she had this for 16 years?? And if so, does that mean it has spread to other organs by now?? Im just so scared and confused. Thank you...
