    Oh No

    My mother has had cancer twice prior to this diagnosis. Once in 2001 for colon cancer and another time in 2009 with endometrial cancer, at which time she had a full hysterectomy. She's been symptomatic for a year (bleeding, in pain) but has been unable to get medical help until recently due to loss of job and insurance. Finally, with Medical, we had a biopsy done and learned that her vaginal lesion is endometrial adenocarcinoma.
