For about two months now, I've been having abdominal pains. I've seen my gynocologist and was told I had a lesion on my cervix. I've found a small lump on my lower abdomin and was wondering if this could possibly be on of the effects of the lesion or if it could actually be some other form of STI/Non-Sexually Transsmitted Infections? I was looking at your p.i.d. section and thought maybe that could be what i have? so, could someone please inform me on the possibilities and severity of my condition? I would be very grateful. Thanks

Not to scare you at all, I've never had a lesion on my cervix, but if you found a small 'lump' and you've had abdominal pains, you might have cervical cancer. I'm not exactly sure what the symptoms and stuff are, but my guess would be that when you find a lump on your breast that could be a sign of breast cancer, I assume it's the same for other areas of the body? Don't let what I said scare you, I'm just saying it might not be an STD or STI. I would go back to your GYN and tell them what you've found and what symptoms you've had, etc. Are you sexually active? Sometimes when you have sex a guy's penis can hit your cervix really hard and cause pain. That's happened to me before, and I was a little sore for a few days after...

Many, many different possibilities. I say go back to your doc. Good luck, hope you feel well soon!

Let's not guess at worst case scenarios, okay?

But yes, those symptoms would merit a trip to the doctor for a full workup, IMO. It may also mean a trip to a GP, because the two things could also be totally unrelated. That abdominal lump could be lots of things: a hernia, for instance.

If you've had untreated infections, that'd be the biggest signal that PID is a possibility, but I'd not jump to that nor to cancer. I'd see both a GP and a GYN to have yourself looked at.

FYI, lesions on the cervix can be lots of things. Yes, it can be a cervical cancer symptom, but it can also be due to HPV and other things. So, get back in there, ask more questions about it, follow up.
