    Glad to hear that this was caught so early. It pays to be "in tune" with your body. Also glad that you didn't ignore they symptoms like so many people would do. Good luck with your recovery. Be strong, you'll beat this!!! You're a fellow yinzer, how could you not beat this!

    Wow! What a blessing to catch this so early!!! What a weight of having to deal with a cancer diagnosis at age 25!!

    I hope that the procedure will give you a clean bill of health and a long and healthy life hence forth.

    Hang in there. Stay positive. People will be praying for you!!!

    Wow, thank you for sharing. I also received a call last year about abnormal cells and had to have a few procedures done to remove pre-cancerous cells from my cervix. The first time my doctor told me I cried, as most people in my family die of cancer before they hit 65. Crappy family history is my downfall. But, I realized it was fairly common for women and I'm back to normal.

    Wishing you the best and good luck with your treatment!! :flowerforyou:
  • Goodness, so sorry to hear of you going through this at your age. BUT...i had a bout with cancer in my late 20's! Mine was Uterine and in my case, it was only caught at my yearly and was told it wasn't looking good (I supposedly had 5-12 months left to live). So...I'm still here after 17 years! Stay in tune with your health and trying to be healthy!!
    I'm sending prayers of health and strength and a blessed outcome for you

    Cancer is a scary disease and I hate it with a bloody passion. I am sorry you have to deal with any of this BUT - You WILL be fine because they caught it so early and because you will be armed with all the info you need to make decisions about treatment. Keep your chin up, buttercup - you have a long life ahead of you! :flowerforyou:
