I just had an opinion. When I first found out that I had Uterine Cancer, I did a lot of research on the subject. I found a lot of really good information, which was very informative.
What I am wondering about is why is this type of cancer hardly ever heard of. You dont know what the symptoms are until you find out that you have it. Women are advised to do monthly breast exams and men to have prostrate exams. I saw an ad on tv about a virus that can cause cervical cancer and the symptoms of colon cancer. I think that this is a wonderful idea to get the word out to protect yourself. I also think that women should know about the warning signs of Uterine cancer as well. I didnt know that anything was wrong. My doctor just dismissed my symptoms as something else. If I knew, I could have insisted on being checked for this. I know that Fran Dresher wrote a book on the subject, and I heard that it went into great detail on the symptoms. I was later told that some of the very small symptoms that I had were listed in her book. I was told by my doctor that Uterine cancer usually hits women going or have gone through menopause. I was a rare case. From what I have seen on this web site, I dont think that was the case.
I am sorry if I sound like I am ranting, and I thank you for "listening".
