Oh No Associated with Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer. Posted on October 4, 2012 View this journey (7 Experiences)

After having symptoms of what I thought was a UTI, I noticed a small amount of blood. I thought it was from the UTI. When it became clear that it was coming from my vagina, I made an appointment with my primary care physician, who immediately made an appointment with my gynecologist. The gynecologist did an intrauterine ultrasound and saw what looked like a polyp. He opted to schedule a D&C instead of in-office removal of the polyp. He said he didn't expect it to be anything more than a polyp, but he wanted to be sure conservative because of my age (I'm 64). I was scheduled to return to his office two weeks after the D&C to go over the results. He called me in a week later (my Mom was with me, as my husband was taking a class that he coudn't miss), and told me I had cancer. Papillary serous carcinoma. It really surprised him, and he was pretty upset (he's a great guy, and a fantastic doctor). He explained to me what it was, and made the first available appointment with the gyn oncologist. I did not have an "Oh, No" feeling. I just thought it was interesting... Just something to get through the best way possible.
