Hello ladies,I'm Angie. I am 34,will be 35 in December. I have been glued to my computer screen for days on end now,and can't seem to get the information I need. Bear with me and let me give you the summary of my situation,and please offer help if you can. I went for a PAP smear,on September 29 of this year. Came back normal. Well,I began to worry that result may not have been accurate for a variety of reasons and so I had a second one done - different dr. - about a month later. This one came back abnormal,ASCUS result with a epithelial abnormality. At that point the gyn ordered a sono,which came back with the following -
Suspect submucosal fibroid versus polyp versus endometrial tumor.Endometrium thickened at 2.6 CM. (that's centimeters,correct). This is likely related to pt.'s menstrual cycle. Endometrial complex also has a small hypoechoic focus with posterior shadowing. May represent calcification versus a mass.
Now,about 4 days go by and I get a call from my primary dr.,who I guess was also sent a report as a courtesy. She says no biggie,it's a fibroid,follow up with your gyn if it bothers you. Well,it didn't bother me all that much,wasn't going to kill me so I let it go. About a week and a half after that,I get a call from the gyn who ordered the test,and she says I need to come in for a hysteroscopy and a colposcopy in December.I ask do they think it is endo cancer and they say come in,we can talk then. Ok. I decide to have the paperwork sent to another gyn to look at before going through with the procedures,and this one says same deal,that I need the procedures.Again,I ask - is this cancer,and the dr. says "It's too complex to discuss over the phone"-and I said that isn't a no,and she says,yes I realize that. And also can't see me until late December. I'm left wondering what those results mean,and I'd like to know if any of you had similar results and what the outcome was. I just don't understand why 1 dr. looks and sees a fibroid,and another sees cancer. I'm really ready to lose it with worry and haven't been able to eat in days. Does anyone have any insight or experience with similar sono results? In all my googling,I haven't seen how any of that is terribly bad.
