Patient :I became pregnant back in February 2015. At my first 6 week appointment, my pap came back as slightly abnormal. The doctor wasn't too concerned. I ended up miscarrying in early March. I now have an appointment for a coloscopy on Tuesday. Last night and this morning I noticed blood in my stool. I read up on it and with the abnormal Pap smear and blood in the stool, it could be cervical cancer. Is this something I should be going to the ER and is it safe to assume both indications point to cervical cancer?
Thanks for trusting ATD about your health care.
I can understand your concern here.
Yes, you are right abnormal pap smear along with rectal bleeding can be due to cervical cancer.
But you can wait till Tuesday for colposcopy to rule out the cause , there is no need to go to emergency if bleeding is not so severe and causing any other health issues.
You have not mentioned your age?
Are you able to send your pap's smear report?
Any other associated symptoms other than this?
Please revert back to me with my answers.
Hope to hear from you soon.
