Just came from the doctor....yet another biopsy.

Hi all,
I just got back from seeing my doctor. Six weeks ago when I went in for my 3 month check, she found two tiny white spots (she said the size of a poppy seed) in the scar tissue around the vaginal cuff. At that time she took a scraping and sent it off for analysis which came back negative. She had me come back in today to see if there was any change in size or shape, and there wasn't. She thinks it is probably nothing more than scar tissue.

However, she has seen lots of hysterectomy scars and says this is something she hasn't seen before. She suggested either a biopsy - she can do it there in the office and just take a few snips of tissue, or continue to come back every six weeks for a spot check. She said she isn't particularly worried, and left the choice up to me.

So what I have decided to do is go back May 15 for another check, and if the spots are still there (and I can't imagine they won't be), do the biopsy. All I have to do is take 800mg Ibuprofin an hour before my appointment.

So, has anyone else had a similar experience? Any suggestions? I am trying not to get too worried and project too far ahead, I mean, the spots haven't changed, test was negative, but still.....

Over the past 2 months, I have been having burnning on the outside of my vagina when I urinate. I went to the gyn/oncologist who told me that I have white spots which he referred to as lesions. He looked at them under the microscope and assured me that it was not cancer. It sounds like you doctor is not worried and is just being safe.

Sometimes ovarian cancer can reshow itself in the vaginal cuff.
When she sent the specimen earlier for analysis, did you mean biopsy? Does the vaginal cuff appear any different than when she sent a specimen off earlier? What does she mean by not having ever seen this type scarring before? Is your doctor a gyn oncologist?
I would definitely make sure the area was biopsied. When my gyn onc removed granulation from my vaginal cuff, it was also biopsied. Just routine to do this in the cancer situation.

I'd definitely have a biopsy. I've found not knowing something just constantly eats at you and you never have any peace. "Cancerhead" rears it's ugly face. You've been so lucky with early stages - keep being lucky.

so far to go

I'm new to this site and so glad to have someone to talk too.I've been having abnomal bleeding since Oct.Made app.with Gen.Doctor.She said I needed a Polypectomy(no big deal I thought)totally dismissed it.It didnt bother me so why bother it.Big mistake.The early part of March my period came and never left and the Pain none can compare.So on my 43 birthday(3/26)I had the polup removed AND was told my uterus is very large with Fibroids.An Endometrial was done.Now I wait for those results to see if I have Cancer(WoW) so much to deal with.After a sonogram(5/2).Than a app.with my Doctor to discuss my opinions
We Women go though so much just to be women.It seems like I have so far to go until this is over with,if it ever will be.I just want it over NOW.Whats scary is I know that life as I know it will never be the same again.
And I'm very much AFRAID
Thanks for listening Dejoya
