Hi all,

I'm happy to have found this site. Please let me know if you have had any experience with the following:

I went in for a routine pap in May. It was abnormal (ASCUS) but HPV Negative. They told me to come back in 6-9 months. Shortly after, I noticed that there were hard bumps on my cervix, which I presume existed before the pap. They are very small but hard. There are 2-3 of them located on the cervix and they are smaller than a grain of tapioca.

I was worried about them as the months went by and they did not go away. I made a follow up pap appointment last week (mid-August). This pap occured 3 months after the first. I am awaiting the results, but after explaining the bump situation, the doctor took a look and quickly said that she thought they were genital warts. I reminded her that I was HPV negative 3 months earlier, and that I have been exclusive with my husband for 7 years (no new exposure). I also have never had any other sort of wart or outbreak. My husband had a wart removed from the skin on his knee about 2 years ago. She seemed to think that the HPV has "developed" since then.

Based on pictures I've seen online, I think it feels more like nabothian cysts. They are very hard. I also believe that I have had discomfort in my upper vagina (similar to the feelings of a UTI) since they developed. Here are my questions:

-Which sort of ailment would more likely appear in just 2-3 bumps?
-Is it normal for either one to exist for more than 3 months?
-Is there any natural treatment for these conditions?
-The bumps on my cervix are symmetrical and smooth. Does this seem more true of nabothian cysts or genital warts?
-Does my doctor sounds like a looney to you, or just me?

Thanks for your help, and I hope to update this post soon- when I get the results of Pap #2.

  • Any resolution for you Desert Rose?I have almost the exact same issue. An abnormal PAP and negative HPV. I have several smooth, firm, distinguishable bumps on my cervix and also one or two on the vaginal wall. I haven't discussed this with my doctor, I actually forgot about it discussing other health issues. But I got to thinking later that the cervical bumps were probably visible to her when she did her exam. I was just told to follow up in a year.
