Taking a case of a 35 year old housewife with vaginal bleeding

A 40 year-old housewife was worried because she started to have vaginal discharge and unscheduled vaginal bleeding. She sought medical advice and the doctor asked for Pap smear. The cytology report included mild dysplasia (CIN I), with HPV infection, and squamous metaplasia. The doctor recommended follow up of the patient. Two years later she started to complain of dyspareunia, and postcoital bleeding, and dysuria. She went to a gynecologist who did vaginal examination and saw a large fungating, partly ulcerated mass in the cervix. The base of the mass was indurated and attached to the surrounding structures. The doctor asked for immediate surgery to assess the grade and stage of the tumor.
