Type of Cancer?

Hi Ladies,
I had a TAH/BSO on 6/10/03 biopsy did show cancer of uterus I think it was in the lining and dr. only said it was in early stages caught in time all other pathology came back okay, no chemo, no radiation. I was so excited I didn't ask anything else. I have to go back next week my question is this even though cancer was caught in early stage is all cancer like coded stage 0 or stage 1 etc. I also have had bouts of bladder cancer since Jan)Should I ask him? You are all in my prayers

Type of Cancer?

You should be able to get the specific information from your doctor regarding the stage and grade of your cancer. I had the same surgery for endometrial cancer. I had a biopsy done prior to surgery that revealed adenocarcinoma- endometrial type, grade 1. Meaning... the type of cancer was slower growing than a grade 3. Until they did the surgery we wouldn't know the stage. (superficial, invasive, to what degree, etc.) During surgery, they send everything to the lab to determine what they have. If they find that it has invaded the uterine lining, then they would look further. Either way, the do a pelvic washing and send everything for further pathology study. Those results are available in about 5-7 days after surgery. On that report, which you can get a copy of, it will spell out exactly what you have going on.

You should be dealing with a gyn/oncologist, and with the history of bladder cancer, should pursue the oncologist route.

Because mine was stage 1, grade 1... the surgery took care of everything and I didn't need radiation/chemo. Talk to your doctor and make sure everything gets explained clearly. Also, go get your hospital report/surgical report and pathology reports.

Take care
