Cancer: Uterine Message Board


Cancer: Uterine Board Index


I am 40 years old, and last year a single, small fibroid was found in my uterus. I could (and can still) feel it. However, I had another ultrasound a few days ago because my last period was unusually long and strange. My fibroid was still the same, but this time my doc said the lining of my uterus is irregular and she wants to do an edometrial biopsy.

She said this finding is "non-specific" - she can't tell me what it could be. I am worried. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I also have trouble with dryness in my vagina, no sex drive, and occasionally get yeast infections.

Thanks!

Hi:

I can't really help with the fibriods, but wanted to comment on the biopsy.

I'm sure your doc is being cautious which is a good thing. I had a biopsy done about 3 weeks ago due to vaginal bleeding after not having a period in 5years (menopause). For me, luckily, it was negative. My Mom has been diagnosed with uterine cancer in November, 2006 and had a hyster and radiation/chemo. We just learned that she is cancer free at this point.

Back to you.....it is good that you are getting checked. Your doc must have thought your uterine lining was thicker, and for that they will do a biopsy.

As for the vaginal dryness........ask your ob/gyn about the estring. It is a ring of estrogen that you insert and it stays in place for 3 months at a time. Although not sure if it would be right for you if you are still having periods. Your sex drive is probably low due to the dryness and you really don't look forward to it! ;) ;).

Good luck on your exam and I hope everything turns out good for you.
