Let The Freaking Out Begin

LSIL—low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. Low-grade means there are early changes in the size and shape of cells. The word lesion refers to an area of abnormal tissue. Intraepithelial refers to the layer of cells that forms the surface of the cervix. LSILs are considered mild abnormalities caused by HPV infection. Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion is not cancer. (www.cancer.gov)

I've spent the last two days crying over this. It's likely there's nothing for me to worry about. However, I am a worst-case-scenario-doomsday type of person. So of course in my mind, I've already lept to this being cancer and having to get a hysterectomy and subsequently never having children.

Merry effing Christmas to me.


  1. When will you get more information?

  2. I have a repeat pap booked for March. If that comes back all stupid, then it looks like they'll have to biopsy me.

  3. Whoa. March is a long time away. That's awful, I hope everything turns out to be okay.
