How was your cancer diagnosed?

I began having a clear watery vaginal discharge last May wth no other symptoms and the doctor discovered an 8 cm mass betwen vagina and rectum. I had had a normal pap in Jan and a normal routine colonscopy for irritable bowel syndrome in April. There was no cevical or vagina dysplasia, my ovaries were fine, and no colon polyps so doctors aren't sure where my amcer originated only that it is squamos cell

How was your cancer diagnosed?

I had some post-menapausal spotting and went to my internist. He told me not to worry about uterine cancer, I didn't fit the profile, blah, blah, blah. But I nagged him enough to get the name of a gyn. She also told me not to worry, I didn't fit the profile, blah, blah, blah. But I nagged her enough to get a biopsy. Quick, easy procedure. It was cancer and I saw a gyn/onc that week. Nothing, absolutely nothing, beats early detection.

Doctors just don't get it sometimes. And women need to insist more. I felt like a jerk arguing with doctors who certainly know more about medicine than I do. But I know more about me than they do. Be proactive - it's your life.
