cancer found during hysyerectomy????

Hi Everyone,

I have endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids and cysts and am scheduled for a hysterectomy on 5/28/02 a day after my 44th birthday. I know it is not likely that any of the fibroids or cysts are cancerous but it's on my mind. I am wondering if any of you were scheduled for a hysterectomy for any of the above reasons only to find out after that you had cancer.

Many Thanks! Hope you are all doing well.

Hi Donna, this is a fear of most women, I think. I am not sure what the numbers are of cancer being found when the hyster is done for other reasons.
I had my hyster for abnormal / pre cancerous cells on cervix.

I hope all goes well with your hyster and please post any time you need support. take care and lotsa hugs

From the totally unscientific sample of reading posts here, my guess is that it's possible but very unlikely.

Of course all kinds of things are scary heading into surgery, but you'll be fine.

I had a concern about fibroids being cancerous, and though my doc told me it's rare that happens, I had reason for that concern. My maternal great-grandmother and grandmother both died of uterine cancer after being diagnosed with fibroids. In my case, I was at risk for it. That is NOT the norm.

9 out of 10, the fibroids are simply fibroids. I just felt it was more than likely I was the 1 in 10.

If they do find it during surgery, be glad it's out. You've got a good chance of being one of the lucky 9. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

LRemaly, Thanks for your feedback. You didn't say whether or not your fibroids turned out to be cancerous. Just wondering. Hope you are doing well.
