I was diagnosed with uterine cancer just last week. My oncologist has advised that the cancer is grade 1 but that he would not be able to determine the stage until he performs the hysterectomy. My doctor also had me have a colonoscopy because he said that at my age (47)I may have a genetic predisposition for uterine cancer. The genetic predisposition can also manifest as colon cancer. The doctor removed 2 small polyps from my colon and has sent them for biopsy. He does not think that they are cancerous.
Does anyone know if with Grade 1 uterine cancer if the stage of this cancer can be beyond Stage 1? I have a week and a half wait until my surgery and to find out my staging. I am just trying to find out my worst case scenario.
