endometrial precancer

Hi I'm hoping someone can help me with a concern of mine. A year ago I had a laproscopic partial hyst--the new procedure--where the uterus is taken out through 2 small incisions. Before I had the hysterectomy all biopsies came out clear. It was being done for endometriosis. Upon pathology endometrial precancerous changes were found in portions of the uterus. Is this to be concerned about the fact that my uterus was morcelated, then taken out with precancerous cells? Does anyone know if this could mean cancer down the road if any of those cells were "seeded"? Would appreciate any help on this. No mention was made of this by dr who did follow protocol. Concerned

I had endo ca stage 1 and a hyst last July. I am not sure about your question, but would be interested to know the answer. Do you still have your ovaries? My onc said most, if not all endo ca are estrogen fed. My gyn has recommended that I stay off estrogen for two years to give my body a chance to rid itself of the almost non exsistant chance of a stray cell....that my body would naturally get rid of this type of cell with no estrogen. I opted not to even take what was called a non chance of a stray cell being effected by estrogen.
I hope someone comes along that knows the answer.

yes i did keep both of my ovaries--and they work. I'm 37 years old. They recommended I keep them. He justsaid something to the effect that I need to be religous about pap smears cause I still have my cervix too. Haven't been back to dr because this doctor moved to establish a new practice somewhere else. So I'm looking for a new gynecologist. Thank you for replying. Concerned

I'm so glad to hear that at least the cells were precancerous. You really are going to have to ask your doctor or a gyn/onc for a good, clear, authoritative answer to your question. I am inclined to think that since the cells were not cancerous you are probably OK. Precancerous cells are in the process of changing. They are no longer normal, but they aren't cancerous yet either. Unfortunately, I don't really know much about the procedure you are describing, so I don't know if it puts you at any higher risk for a bad cell to stray someplace and take root, but I would still think your chances of it being a problem are slim. But call your doc and ask--that's what they're there for.

Good luck! Let us know what you find out.
