Review for Cancer Schmancer Foundation, Reston, VA, USA
Ever since I was a child I have seen many family members loose the battle with cancer. I never really understood why there couldn't be anything done about it until I grew up and dug my heels into research and websites. When I was 18 I had received a phone call from my OB saying my PAP had come back with some abnormalities and I needed to schedule an appointment. Come to find out I was diagnosed with HPV at the time and needed to undergo Cryotherapy to freeze the abnormal cells off. Then I did not understand why I had to go through that procedure until it was explained to me that if I had gone without the treatment the abnormal cells could in fact develope into cervical cancer. Now 26 years old and free of abnormal cells due to the simple test of a PAP. Keep yourself protected by routine check ups with the OB and always remember ONLY you know your body, if there is something that doesn't seem right let your instincts guide you.
