... Hi: I have a very large uterus with lots of fibroids for over 25 years; i have not had surgery because frankly I am terrified of surgery; My recent ultrasound showed a polyp, probably in the endometrium; i have read this could indicate a thickened endometrial lining; I am going to the GYN in two days; yesterday I noticed a very tiny drop of blood; i haven't had any more since...

... The ultrasound didn't seem to show anything. The lining of my uterus apparently looked good and she mentioned that maybe there was something on my ovaries (polyps) ... but she really didn't seem concerned about it. I'm going for another ultrasound next week ... And I agree with you, I feel like it is hormonal!?... however I also remember experiencing abnormal bleeding off... (5 replies)
... Hi mamabluvs3, I wouldn't get too worried yet. I've had similar sypmtoms and here's the way it went for me: At age 47, I had an enlarged uterus - 3 fibroids and thickened uterine lining. I had a biopsy and everything was fine. I'm almost 51 now and I've had about 4 biopsy's for the same issues. The one I had about 8 months ago showed some mild atypia, so I had a D&C and my...

Really worried.

... I've been to a doctor and had an ultrasound and trans vaginal ultrasound, but the doctor's haven't given me very much detail other than the lining of my uterus is thick. They're not very friendly or helpful. ... (1 replies)
... I am diagnosed the same as you.. however I went to a endocrinologist who also found out I was insulin resistant (diabeties type 2).. she thinks that if I take medication to control my sugar that it will eventually bring on absent periods and clear out on its own. (1 replies)
... Knightster and Lynn - I wondered how you ladies were doing. I went for my follow-up appointment from my D&C almost 2 weeks ago and no cancer was found. Lynn - I hope your bleeding stopped. Becky (27 replies)
... Hiya Reba..... So glad you finally got it over with and glad you did good. Hope the report comes back ok :) I am STILL bleeding after my sugery....so, my doctor is giving this a lil while longer to see if things gets straightened out. If not....I will have a hysterectomy BLAH.....I've been bleeding since oct. 16 and it just will not go away. I am hoping it will soon... (27 replies)
... Hi Lynne - I'm glad that they didn't find anything unusual. Keep us posted on how you feel. I scheduled my D&C for November 11. The surgery is at 7 a.m. and we have to be there at 6 a.m. (Yikes, I am a night person - HA). I started on some new thyroid medication a week ago and haven't bled since so maybe that was why I had the bleeding. Do you work outside the home? ... (27 replies)
... Hi ladies.......... Just wanted to let you all know how the precedure went for me today. I had a hysterscopy, D & C and endometrial ablataion. My doc did the novasure ablation. The surgery itself didnot take but about 45 minutes. My doctor didnot find anything abnormal, so that was a very good thing. I was knocked out but not under heavy anethesia which I was happy... (27 replies)
... Hi Lynn - My doctor hasn't mentioned an ablation to me yet, I guess we will see what happens after I have the D&C. But I have heard it is a good surgery to have, sure better than a hysterectomy. When I was 50 three years ago I had fibroids and cysts and had a laprectomy (outpatient). I am one of these lucky women that never had problems with periods, they were regular, not... (27 replies)
... Thanks Lynn for your quick reply. I'm nervous. I guess I should go ahead and schedule the D&C to see if I have cancer, that word is so scary to say or look at. Becky (27 replies)
... Hi Lynn, Please let us know how it goes for you. My doc wants me to schedule a Hysterscopy and ablation do to heavy periods and thickening of the endometrium. I did have a biopsy of the endo and it came back fine. I am a little nervous to have the other procedures done. Pam (27 replies)
... Hi Lynne1961 I too am 47 and had a Endo biopsy due to thickening of the Endometrium, all came back clear. My doc wants me to have the Ablation procedure done, but I have mixed feelings about it. I did harmone testing in the office through blood work, and it said all levels fine. I then did saliva harmone testing on my own and it came back that my Progesterone levels are... (27 replies)
... Hello... my mother was diagnosed and had a D&C performed on 9-5-2008. Could tell me what the doctor told your mother about this cancer?? I can't seem to find out what I'm looking for. I fear that my mom waited so long that she'll have stage IV. I'm wondering about the accuracy of the 5 year survial rate being only 5% . Thanks, Stephanie in Staunton VA (2 replies)
... my mom just found out less than a week ago. that cancerous cells were found in the lining of her uteris. she was diagnosed with endometriosis a few months ago, and at that time she did NOT have the cells. ... (2 replies)
... Hi Sunny - glad to hear everything is okay - although that still doesn't answer your question about the pain and the spotting. Hopefully the "pill" will work. If not I would definitely call the doctor back. You can also ask for copies of the ultrasound and biopsy reports. I always get copies of mine so I can read them and what I don't understand I look up. Overgrowth... (21 replies)
... Not to worry any of you more than you are already worried, but uterine cancer is not that rare at all. It is expected that 1 out of 32 women will be diagnosed with endo or uterine cancer this year. To me, that is a fairly large number. The good news is that it is the most curable cancer that women can get. And avoidable! My doctor told me it is rare to see a thin in shape... (5 replies)
... I also just recently had one. One thing my doctor mentioned was that cancer of the uterus, even with thickened lining, is very rare. He told me its rate is something like 10%. You are wise to check it out though, especially since a family member had it. It is highly curable if discovered early. As for the biopsy itself, my experience was a bit different than the one of...

... c hystoroscopy,and endo biospy. my gyne has told me no cancer or pre cancer cells but because the womb has a thick lining i will have to have another biospy in 6 months time has anyone else had this result or been told to come back after what seems to be an all clear? ... (1 replies)
