June 14, 2007 Journal Excerpt- The Diagnosis

Friday I go to see a gyn oncologist. Yesterday, Dr. H. told me that I do have cervical cancer. That did not surprise her so much. What did surprise her was the type, adneocarcinoma, and the fact that she found it not on the surface of my cervix, but on the inside of it. So, if I had had a normal pap and had not been tested for HPV,t hey wouldn't have found the cancer because pap smears check the outside of the cervix, not the inside.
