I had complete hysterectomy Dec 20, 2004. I was diagnosed with adenoma carcinoma. It was stage 1 cancer with a grade 2. I'm 40 years old and the cancer was found because of a D&C to remove a polyp. The cancer was confined to the polyp. My mother, grandmother, and aunt all had this cancer and survived. My great aunt died of colon cancer. My uncle has had kidney cancer. I am cancer-free currently, my lymph nodes were disease free. My oncologist says there is about 95% chance that I have Lynch II syndrome. Does anyone out there have this Lynch II syndrome? My onocologist recommends that I have genetic counseling. Has anyone had genetic counseling? What does that do? I feel like the person who drew the short end of a stick in a terrible mission. I'd appreciate thoughts, advice. Thanks.
