I have just had an abnormal smear test.The doctor has said that it isn't cancer but they still want to treat me and do follow-up tests.Is this really necessary?
Just because it is not cancer at this stage does not mean that it can be ignored. It is a warning and it is vital to have any treatment suggested. It left untreated it could develop into cancer after several years and this is too big a risk take. Treatment and follow-up tests are entirely in your own best interests.
