Hi, I hope that someone can help me, I am not sure if I am even in the right place,considering my doctor said I no longer have the cancer since he took out my cervix. I had just had a pap done before my scheduled hysterectomy. It came back off, and he said that since he was taking out my cervix anyway they would biopsy it after removal. When he got the path report back he said I have cured you of two things, endometriosis and cancer. I was freaked out as I didn't even know it was there until after surgery. Now I know there is NO cure for endo, so my question is even though this was a carcinoma in situ, will I be more likely to get some other cancer now? My mother and both her parents have died of some kind of cancer. And now I am really scared. Any help or advice you could give will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading my novel.
