cervical cancer
Hi, my gyunea has picked up higher grade cancer cells in my cervix. I am now going to have them removed. Would you suggest that I have my children at a younger age to avoid complications (considering the fact that I am 20 years old). My gynea said that the chance of the cancerouse cells comming back is relatively high. What would you suggest?

I presume that you mean precancerous cells. I would suggest that you wait and see what the follow-up pap smears show. It may be that there is no recurrence after removal.
