I am 55 years old, have been diaganosed with ostrioarthritus, have been using the injection for the last 20 years and have now been getting severe menstrual bleeding
Do I have cervical cancer?

Hi Anon,

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if you have cervical cancer. You must go to the doctor for a pap smear as soon as possible if you have never had one. If you have no insurance, please contact your public health office to set up an appointment with them. Here is some more information on cervical cancer: https://www.empowher.com/condition/cervical-cancer/definition

Best Wishes and good luck,
