that it wasn't psychosomatic when it happened to me.  I stuck my head in the sand for 2 weeks after the discharge started telling myself as long as I wasn't bleeding, I was ok. Then it turned pink.  Also, I think we all agree that the period while we were waiting for a diagnosis was a very anxious one for us. I can't imagine choosing to live in that uncertain time .  It was horrible.

In my situation, though, it didn't happen until after my dr really grilled me on the colour of my discharge. Which is why I'm thinking it's psychosomatic. The othe bleeding has been going on for years (sporadically).

Your choice. But you might be denying yourself a chance to live by not dealing with this early. And you might later have to deal with double the pain and suffering and limiting your options. What about your family and loved ones?  This might be a simple fix or this might be life threatening. Under your choice you’ll have to live every day not knowing.

Please also remember that in MOST cases, if caught early, the long-term prognosis is pretty good. My mother had Stage 1 adenocarcinoma in 2009 .... quite alive and kicking today. Yes, some of us were blessed with the nastier varieties, but most women do not have these. The only way you're going to know is via biopsy and treatment, if needed.

I know, but I can't get past the surgery issue. I don't think I can put myself through that.

As evolo58 said, it can often be cured of caught early, or if it is endometrial adenocarcinoma. I am 3a, and was actually bleeding, not just pink. After a hysterectomy the cancer is gone for now, but I need to finish up my chemo and then have some targeted beam radiation treatments. If I do all that, I have an 80% chance (though I am a statistic of 1!) of being just fine. Going thru this stuff is not easy and it is scary, but for me it is worth it. I hope you feel comfortable with whatever you decide, and it is always a very personal decision and not easy.
