Cancer: Uterine Message Board

Cancer: Uterine Board Index

I'll be 55 next month. I had bleeding and pain, and some pink discharge, so went to the doctor, who did a transvaginal ultrasound, and told me my uterine lining had enlarged to 21cm. Normal is 4 cm or less and anything over that needs to be evaluated. I got a second opinion and two more ultrasounds, both transvaginal and abdominal. They did not reveal any masses or polyps. My doctor wanted to do a D&C, hysteroscopy, and biopsy it then. He said an in office biopsy would not be accurate enough. I had it done yesterday and during the hysteroscopy (where he looked inside my uterus) found a very large polyp, which he removed. He is certain that is what was causing my lining to be so enlarged. I have to wait on pathology to know for sure, but my doctor feels confident it will be benign. He said the tissue and surrounding tissue is a healthy color and he did not see any areas of concern and none that looked cancerous. I am confident it is not cancer. I am glad I went to the doctor when I did. But all you ladies out there who have an enlarged uterus, just remember my situation and know that it does not always mean cancer. If it is cancer, then it's good to find out when it is in the earliest stage when it can be successfully treated.
