I am 41 y/o and have one dtr. I recently had a TVUS that showed my lining to be 31mm thick. I am scared that I might have endometrial cancer. I am scheduled for a hysteroscopy, d&c and will have my last remaining ovary removed [I had one removed in 2000 due to stage IIIc Ovarian cancer]. I am hoping the pathology report will come back stating no endometrial cancer. As for my symptoms, I had cramps during my period and a heavy flow the first three days out of 5, but I have had these symptoms since I was 11 years old when I began menstruating. I have always viewed these symptoms as normal. As for my weight, I am ummm a couple pounds over weight, but I like to think it is due to a lot of muscle mass. I am of mixed heritage: Filipina, Hispanic and Native American. I had my first mammogram a few months ago and it showed that I have breast issues as well, and am scheduled to have a bilateral mastectomy in May of 2012. My BRCA test came back positive for variant of uncertain significance in the BRCA 2 gene IVS18-6G>T [basically falling under this ‘other’ category means myriad lab has not determined if the change in my BRCA2 gene is harmful or not]. Is there anyone out there with very thick uterine lining who was diagnosed with endometrial cancer? If so, can you please share with me your story or simply what your symptoms were before the diagnosis, the size of your uterine lining thickness and your age? Thanks so much!
