    The first symptom I noticed was bleeding that got worse over a long period of time. I thought I should get this checked out by a doctor.

    Oh No

    I went to see my primary care provider and he referred me to a gynecologist. After seeing the OBGYN, he scheduled me for a D & C. During the follow up appointment, he told me I had uterine cancer.
