Sorry that you received a surprise diagnosis. Are you going to need any further treatment? Most uterine cancers are found early and do not need further treatment. I am guessing that this was very early as it was not found with a biopsy a few months ago. This is good news. Just want to say that uterine cancer is not usually diagnosed by pap smears.

If you find yourself wanting to talk with others about this or help in coping with the surprise diagnosis, feel free to check out the Cancer Concerns part of HysterSisters.

This is making me sort of scared again. I have had several years of D&C's and an uterine biopsy this summer and they said no cancer. Then All the stuff just keeps growing back so I had the hysterectomy on Monday. I still fear it's cancer and reading these shows that it can be. I just wish the path report would hurry up and come in.

Dear Wvuavt,

Each person is going to be different, but my Dr assured me that endometrial or uterine cancer is very slow growing. I saw the gyn oncologist for the first time on 11/7 and he said everything must go and I asked if I could wait until after the holidays and he said it was OK. (surgery was 1/8.)

Please just take it one day at a time, you've been through the major part and may need no further treatment. Cross each bridge as you come to it and get your daily dose of hystersisters to help relax!

Hi Hiberbear, I pretty much had the same thing happen to me. Was having heavy, irregular bleeding, I'm 49, both Gyn and myself thought it was start of menopause, gyn suggested hysterscope, D&C and ablation. Had it all done in 10/07. D&C revealed complex endometrial hyperplasia with atypia (one step away from Cancer) which my gyno made me wait until my 1 month post ablation check up to inform me (was mad at him for that). I was then told I needed a hysterectomy, I cried, said no, he said yes, long story short, he won, had a TAH/BSO 12/6, found stage I cancer cells at time of surgery, final path report revealed no cancer (different opinions of pathologists is what I'm told). To date, 7 weeks post op, I'm cured and feel great, don't have to go back to my gyno for 6 mos. Glad to hear I wasn't the only one in this situation!

I'm glad you got your hysterectomy when you did. My Grandmother always told me to follow my own instincts and it's a blessing that you did. I'll continue to pray for you!
