I'm happy to have found these boards even though I wish I didn't need them. I'm Sandy and I live near Frederick, MD. I had abnormal cells of unknown origin on my pap so my family physician referred me to a gyn. Based on ultrasound and the pap results, the gyn performed a D&C with hysteroscopy on 10/20. She asked my husband and I to come in her office the following Monday and gave me the diagnosis of uterine cancer. She first said the results indicated it was papillary seorus adenocarcinoma of the uterus but further testing was being performed. She called me that evening to let me know that they could not confirm the initial type of cancer. It's still cancer but the "good" news is that it may be normal cancer. It feels weird to say that is good news. My samples have been sent to either Mayo or Hopkins to determine type and I should have results in a few days. The waiting is killing me! I'm 44 years old with no symptoms. I'm taking it one day at a time and scheduling all of my testing and other doctor consults. My job is being accommodating and letting me leave for appointments with short notice. I have supportive family and friends.
Thanks for letting me share
