A word of caution on getting reports sent to you. In 2016 I had some post menopausel bleeding and sought medical attention. The first go-round I had a hysteroscope which found polyps and I had them removed. Bleeding continued. Had a pap smear that showed atypical cells that the doctors office filed away. I got those results and called their office and was told to come back in. Another cervical biopsy that revealed nothing. About a month later, I woke up in a pool of blood. I called the doctors office, went right down and they did another biopsy. I went home to wait for results. A week before Christmas, the lab sent ME the results that clearly said that I had cancer. I sat for two weeks paralyzed by the knowledge that I had some type of cancer - the lab had sent the samples to Johns Hopkins to confirm the diagnosis and to confirm that it was an aggressive type of uterine cancer. I finally called my gyno who was very upset that I had gotten these results in an email. She said she was waiting until John's Hopkins confirmed this information before calling me. She had NO idea that these results were released to me without benefit of a doctors consultation. I went thru hell. My husband who did not see the word cancer, it was CARCINOMA on the email, kept telling me that I was worrying for nothing. In early 2017 I had a hysterectomy, ovaries and cervix removed and then 6 months of chemo and then radiation. While I am greatful that I received the first pap smear results, because I shudder to think what would have happened had I not persisted with medical tests, I also would not want to see anyone relive the horror of those few weeks before Christmas and into early January because of an email being sent out. EDITED TO ADD: the biopsies showed nothing because the samples were taken around the areas that had cancer cells. Had I not persisted, it would have been discovered too late.
