Hello, I am trying to deal with the new diagnosis of cervical cancer. I have been married for 25 years. 23 years ago, I had a pap smear that indicated pre-cancerous cervical cancer. I had a cone, and from then...had a child..20 years of normal paps...and I missed pap for last three years. Because I had normal periods, married, all seemed good I was not as concerned as I should be about the pap. 10 weeks ago, I developed what I thought was a uti/bladder/kidney infection. Now,, doctor is telling me I have cervical cancer :( This has started some very difficult discussions with husband, who is admitting to everything in the world...except having sex with someone else. UGGGGGH. I need an answer...some help....HOW could I have cervical cancer unless infected by husband? My doctor said it is virtually impossible for the 'pre-cancerous' cells from 23 years ago to have formed in to this. She 'gently' suggested I had been re-infected. SO....does this mean my husband DID cheat on me? (based on his reaction, I now beliieve this is possible) HELP...I DO need to know, so I can move forward :(
