After swabs and being given clindamycin cream for treatment of what I thought was an infection; I saw my consultant last week. Thankfully it was female member of his team so I could relax a little. She examined me and told me she wanted to rule out every possibility which meant going to the gum and depending on the results if all is negative then proceed with attending the vulval clinic for biopsy. I bit the bullet and attended gum, feeling very vulnerable wondering what other people would be thinking of me. The practitioner called my name and I had to repeat my story of events. After examination and blood/urine tests I was asked to wait 15 mins for my results. When that 15 passed I was called back in and told all was negative, from their point of view they told me that my gynecologist would proceed with biopsy. Very kindly a specialist nurse spoke to me about the procedure and what it entails. I am so mortified that I was judged in such a way by my gynecologist, but on the other hand I can see she was covering her back. I'm worrying its the worst possible thing that this biopsy will detect. Vulval ca, my appointment is 16th may, they wouldn't leave me that long if they thought it was. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of biopsy too?
