    Symptoms and Diagnosis

    i realize the posts are not very current on this page but I am hoping some of you brace ladies can help me out by sharing your symptoms and how diagnosed. I am having trouble getting the gyn onc to take me seriously because she says I am too young (I am 46!), I am not over weight (but my estrogen is high/progesterone low), and I am peri menopausal....none of the risk factors according to her. My...

Unfortunately biopsy showed complex hyperplasia/ adenocarcinoma of uterus. Ny gynae was surprised as it is not my age (33yrs). Anyways advised for MRI for staging. Just got my MRI report which showed no endometrial disease only adenomyosis of uterus. I am so confused. Did it happen...

    This cancer was first found in uterine and both ovaries.  Went through six round of chemo  taxel/carbopetien.  Before they started the radiation they found stage 1in my breast and also that I was ER+.  Oh didn't mention the three major surgeries.  I then did 25 rounds of radiation and another 25 founds.   I'm on letrozole for the ER+.   Even though it was very hard and also worked a full...

    to young

    I'm 29 now but was diagnosed with pre uterine cancer when I was 23 after a cap tone of depo shots I was told it was either a hysterectomy or I could try the IUD. 23 no kids just one miscarriage I did the IUD. I still had the pre cancer. I decided to wait cuz I absolutely refused to give up on having kids. Well five years later and I'm recovering from the hysterectomy as we speak. It went from pre...

    Got the diagnosis today . . . . . .

    Endometrial cancer. I was shocked to say the least. I had a D&C and hysteroscopy 2 weeks ago to remove polyps. I knew they would be sending samples for pathology but really didn't think this would be the result. I was told that it's Stage 1 and I'm going to have a hysterectomy. My doc is referring me to a gynecologic oncologist in Memphis and that's pretty much all I know at this point. I...

    Tired of waiting

    i learned of my endometrial cancer by phone while driving on what is billed the busiest highway in the world--the 401 through Toronto. I live in Winnipeg but had driven to Toronto two days after the D&C to support my son through some difficulties, hence the means of being informed. I was allowed to choose where I would have the surgery and chose Toronto, to spend more time with my son. My surgery...

    Stage 4 Endometrial Cancer

    No responses to previous posts, but I will try again. Perhaps third time's the charm. Have a final diagnosis. Surgery out of the question currently due to existing PE's and anticoag therapy resulting in repeated vaginal hemorraging. Havent been able to spend a day home without being rushed back to hospital bleeding. Finally, after four targeted radiation treatments last week, was released on...

    So scared....please help

    New here. I don't have a diagnosis yet but I'm not quite sure where else I fit in for support. I'll try to be short here with my story. I'm 37. I've had heavier periods since sometime in the summer and then they got really bad a few months ago. Heavy heavy bleeding with clots....like can't leave the bathroom for hours and have to leave work bleeding...no real pain though until lately which is...

    Recent Diagnosis

    Yesterday I received the call that my biopsy that was done last Thursday for only "precautionary" reasons turned out to not be so precautionary. As the doctor listed a very detailed diagnosis, what seemed to absorb within my consciousness was "uterine cancer" and Grade 1. I see the oncologist next Wednesday. I am scared and bounce back and forth between calm and angry. I have discomfort,...

    Alternative to hysterectomy, early stage I

    I am 37 years old and have not yet had children. I have recently been diagnosed with Stage I Endometrial Cancer and don't want a hysterectomy. My doctor is trying an alternative treatment where I am to lose weight and get on Megace (man-made progesterone), which is not an easy feat given that Megace is an appetite suppresant. She said that after 6 months, if all is gone, I should try to get...
