It had been a while since I had seen a gynecologist — two years, in fact. I know I am supposed to have an annual exam, but as many of us do, I allowed time to pass and work to take over.
Last Friday, I learned that I have high-risk HPV, the human papilloma virus. It means that I face the possibility of developing cervical cancer. That’s why my doctor ordered me to have a biopsy, as I did Tuesday.
