Fallopian Tube Cancer?

I had my LAVH on 1-2-03 for fibroid tumors and heavy periods. All bloodwork, ultrasounds, endometrial biopsy, etc. before hand came back normal. I just had bad periods.

The surgery went very well. In fact, the pharmacy came up to see if my morphine pump was really working because I only used it twice. I went home 2 days later, and recovered beautifully. My only complication was an upper respiratory infection, which I was told is to be expected when you intubate an asthmatic.

One week after surgery, my doctor called. I thought it was one of those "just calling to see how you're doing" calls. Instead he informed me that the pathology report showed a 0.6 cm undifferentiated carcinoma in my left fallopian tube.

All of a sudden I am going to a gynecological oncologist. They are discussing a "second look" surgery to sample all of my organs and tissues to see where the origin of the cancer could be.

And I thought I was lucky getting away with a LAVH. Now I'm going to get cut open anyway!

Life sure brings unexpected surprises!

Fallopian Tube Cancer?

s Linda

Welcome to Cancer Concerns. I am so sorry to read of your need to post here, but you are in good place for hugs, support and advice.
Your gyn sounds like he is right on the ball, sending you off to see a gyn oncologist.
Your cancer sounds very tiny, so in a way, thank goodness you had the hyster done. Hopefully your cancer is in the earliest possible stage!!!!
I hope you come back and update us when you see the gyn onc.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Fallopian Tube Cancer?

(((Linda)))

You must be feeling so shocked! It's one thing to know you have cancer going into surgery, and something else to go in thinking you have one thing and finding out you also have cancer. I am so glad that they have found it early--only 6 mm! So glad to hear you are seeing a gyn/onc! I'm sure you are getting the best possible care at this time.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing and what your future plans are.

Re: Fallopian Cancer

Love your name. I also love to make quilts.

I had a non invasive cancer in my right ovary and an non invasive cancer in my left fallopian tube (3cm). The gyne onc at the university medical center could not determine which was primary or if I had 2 independent malignancies.

Either way, my gyne onc told me that primary fallopian tube cancer is rare but does occur. The cancer cell are embryonically similar to ovarian cancer. Therefore, fallopian cancer is treated like ovarian cancer. The doctors choose to label my two cancers as an ovarian stage 2.

Going to an gyne onc is the best idea. He or She will be able to answer all your questions and explain any treatment recommendations.

There is little information on the web about primary fallopian cancer on the web because it is so rare.

Good Luck. I'll be thinking of you.

Sorry to Read of This Discovery

Your tumor is very small and the important thing, although frightening at this time, is that it was found! Hopefully it was contained just to the tube. The gyn/onc is the best one for the second surgery and will know what to look for and where. Best wishes that nothing else is discovered. A and a er.
