After surgery, path report from Mayo indicates that my cancer is actually cervical in origin and not the dreaded UPSC. The official diagnosis is 1B1 Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of the cervix with lymph node involvement. The tumor was considered endocervical because of the location (top of cervix, bottom of uterus) and something technical in the path report.
Has this type of misdiagnosis happened to anyone else? I now have to start over with researching my disease....grrr!!! At the same time, the doctors are asking what I want to do about chemo/radiation. I'm not familiar with the options available for this type of cancer and am feeling pressured and ill-informed.
Is anyone familiar with this type of cancer? I haven't been able to find much information on this subtype. I will also check the cervical cancer board, but wanted to check with you ladies as well.
In a nutshell, I'm happy that I do not have UPSC and that the doctors don't expect to see recurrence for 2-3 years, so I have time. As a result, I am leaning towards an alternative method for the next 9 months and then re-evaluate my options.
Good luck and God bless!!!
