Fluid filled sac in uterus

I had an ultrsound done a month ago and my ob-gyn just called to say i have a fluid filled sac in the uterus that is most probably being caused by a condition called adenomyosis (where the endometrium tissue is growing into the uterus muscle wall). I am a bit worried , could this be cancerous. What do i need to ask my doctor? What do i need to do.
Anyone else with a similar situation./ condition.
I also had a fibroid and it seems to have dissappered somewhere.

Re: Fluid filled sac in uterus

We have many, many members who have or have had an adenomyosis diagnosis. We also have several resources about it you might want to look through: http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/lin...o=browse&cid=6

Additionally, here are a couple articles that might help:
Adenomyosis - Treatment Questions
Adenomyosis and Pain

In general, adenomyosis is not cancerous nor does it cause an increased risk for cancer, but discuss your concerns with your doctor.

in there!

Re: Fluid filled sac in uterus

To hopefully put your mind at ease, when doctors suspect cancer they take care of it right away. When I was 19 I went to my family doctor with a breast lump. I had an appointment with a surgeon the next day. My mother-in-law's doctor found a spot on an x-ray on her lung, she had an appointment with an onchologist the next day. Any time a doctor thinks cancer is even a possibility, they move fast.

Adenomyosis is a quality of life issue. Some women have it and happily make it to menopause with no problems and others have such dabilitating symptoms that they eagerly go into a hysterectomy. Most are probably somewhere in the middle.

If you have questions about your ultra sound, call your doctor. As for what to do about adenomyosis, that just depends on whether or not your symptoms are bothersome.
