hyperplasia with atypia

I have recurring atypia, 3 times in 8 yrs!!! I have taken Megace and Provera both of which reversed the atypia. I was taking Aygestin(progerterone) daily for a few years and the atypia returned in spite of it. Has anyone had this problem??? OB has mentioned the possibility of a hysterectomy. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

hyperplasia with atypia

That's what I have, along with large fibroids (see my tagline).

This is the first that the hyperplasia w/atypica has been diagnosed, though. Since the 'broids are growing, I decided to go the hysterectomy route. I know I'll feel much better once it's all done.

hyperplasia with atypia

HI ~
I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ENDOMETRIAL HYPERPLASIA W/ ATYPIA MAY 18th AND BETWEEN MY INFERTILITY DOCTOR AND MY OB/GYN THEY BOTH SUGGESTED AN IMMEDIATE HYSTERECTOMY (WHICH I HAD ON JULY 6th)- AND LET ME TELL YOU........ IT WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE- NOT ONLY BECAUSE IT HAD TURNED TO CANCER, BUT I FEEL LIKE A NEW PERSON !!! MORE ENERGY, CALM, I HAVE EVEN LOST 16 lbs IN THIS LAST FIVE WEEKS. I DID ALOT OF RESEARCH ON THIS DISEASE PROCESS AND HAVE LEARNED THAT IT IS VERY COMMON WITH WOMEN THAT HAVE TOO MUCH ESTROGEN AND NOT ENOUGH PROGESTERONE TO COUNTERACT IT- AND EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE "TEMPORARY" TREATMENTS TO KEEP IT AT BAY- MOST LIKELY IT WILL ALWAYS RETURN AND IF LEFT UNTREATED WILL TURN TO CANCER. SO PLEASE DO YOUR "HOMEWORK" ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL PROBLEM SO YOU CAN MAKE THE BEST DECISION- IF A HYSTER IS WHAT ENDS UP HAPPENING- JUST HAVING THE PIECE OF MIND THAT YOU WON'T GET CANCER IS ALL WORTH IT !! BEST WISHES IN WHATEVER DECISION YOU MAKE !!!

hyperplasia with complex atypia

HI. I'M NEW HERE. I'VE BEEN TOLD THAT FOR THIS CONDITION (Endometrial hyperplasia w/complex atypia) I NEED TAH/BSO. I'M 56 YEARS OLD, POST-MENOPAUSAL, STILL HOT FLASHING. I AM AWARE THAT THIS CONDITION IS PRE-CANCEROUS. I AM OK WITH PARTING WITH UTERUS, BUT HAVE RESERVATIONS ON OVARIES. I'D APPRECIATE HEARING OTHERS' EXPERIENCES IN SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES..................RAYZEL

I was also diagnosed with hyperplasia w/atypia and my dr recommended a TAH, since I'd also been suffering with fibroids for many years. We discussed not removing my ovaries and she agreed as long as they were healthy, which they were and I have no family history of ovarian cancer or other cancers. I had made sure she knew how I felt about not removing my ovaries and was very grateful that she listened. Every dr has their own opinions on what is best, we can only hope they do what is also best for us. Best of luck to you.
