Uterine Cancer

I am soon to be 41 years old. In August of 2002 I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer and in Sept. of 2002 I had a radical hysterectomy. I was told that the cancer had not breached the lining and therefore was gone. I have just recently discovered two lumps in my armpit and was wondering if anyone has heard of any relation between different types of cancer. I am going to my doctor and will most likely have a biopsy but surely I can't be so unlucky as to have cancer twice? Anyone have any thoughts? Maybe I'm just being paranoid. Thanks.

jlizp62, yes, my oncologist told me that uterine cancer and breast cancer often go 'hand-in-hand.'(It's something to do with estrogen.) I had endometrial/uterine cancer in Dec. 1999. After a total abdominal hysterectomy, plus a layer of lymph nodes removed in Jan. 2000, I was told the cancer was contained. It was 5% into the endometrial lining. I know it's been awhile since you posted the message, but I'm new to the network. Did you have your biopsy?

hi, i just had a hysterectomy in august, it was encapsulated in the uterus and the nodes were fine but unfortunately it was a sarcoma, i have been told that those with sarcomas only have a 50 chance of survival, as u can imagine i am quite anxious, i am 55 years old and awaiting the drs decision on what to do next

Hi.

I'm sorry, but lightning can strike twice, or even three times. Sometimes it's genetic, and sometimes it is hormone-related. Either way, get it checked out quickly. Fast action means better outcomes. I have been hit by lightning twice and I plan on getting VERY old!

Hugs,
Kirsten
