You should probably just have a check-up including a pap smear. Nothing to worry about.

Hi

Yes you need to be checked every 12 - 18 months. Nothing to worry about. They do a papsmear, feel your breast etc and then send your papsmear away to make sure no cancer, infection etc.

It is really nothing to worry about. It takes max 15 minutes and then you know that all is well in about 4 days after that.

Good luck
