Hi I had a cervical biopsy 6 month ago and the doctor told me it was mild change and I would have to come back in 6 months. So I have went back and had to get another biopsy the doctor that was doing the test said I have mild change again. I have not got my test result back yet but I am going crazy trying to figure out if I have cervical cancer or not.Also since my biopsy I have had pretty bad lower stomach pain and it has been a week and I am still spotting but it the blood does not look like period blood it is light pink.Could someone please help me understand what is going on. I would also like to know what will happen next if it comes back as mild change again.

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you what your biopsy results will show, and so you will have to await those results to learn whether or not you have cervical cancer.

It is not unusual to spot for several days, or even a couple of weeks, after a cervical biopsy. If the spotting persists longer than this, or worsens, then you should see the Gynecologist who performed the biopsy.
