18 months ago I was diagnosed with Steven Johnsons Syndrome following an allergic reaction to (and so immediate stoppage of) Carbomiazapine. I recovered well, with only small relapses in Sjs that seem to occur when I catch some other virus like a cold, or if i get run down. So last week I went for a routine pap smear. It had been a while, but I thought nothing of it until I was called back for a conical biopsy and have been diagnosed with stage 1b cervical cancer. Am more worried about the potential relapses of the scary sjs than the cancer! Plus, if this vance wa cause d by the hpv virus (highly likely)...recurrences likely?
