Growth on cervix malignant?<br>Growth on cervix malignant?

Dear Doctor

I am a 43 year old woman with three children. First child at 18, last child at 35. I haven't been for a pap smear for several years and recently noticed a hard 'growth' on my cervix about the size of a small pea, while inserting a tampon. Is this possibly malignant and how urgently should I see a gynaecologist? Thank you.

It could be malignant or could just be a nodule on the cervix. Try and see your gynaecologist within the next couple of weeks.
