I was diagnosed with endometrial stromal sarcoma in 2000. The sarcoma started in a fibroid tumor in the uterus and spread from the depths of the endometrial lining out to the uterus, blood vessels, soft tissue and lymph nodes. This is a cancer that makes up less than 1% of all gynecological cancers. It is a slow mover, which meant that they wouldn't treat it with chemo or radiation. I took the drug, Megace, 3 times a day for 5 years. In 2005, I was declared cancer free and as of my last ct scan on July 28,2009, still remain cancer free!
