Scared now
I read that symptoms of cervical cancer are bleeding and an offensive discharge. I have had smelly discharges before and thought it was infections. I had it a few times in the last 7 years or so. How do I know this is not cervical cancer - apart from pap smears?

The only way to diagnose cervical cancer is with a pap smear and internal examination. This is the reason for having regular pap smears.
