Question: Uterine Cancer? My mom just found out she has uterine cancer. About 5 years ago she had a huge cyst the size of a grapefruit removed from her ovary and they said it was non malignant. (non-cancerous) What I am wondering is, if she has a hysterectomy, will she be o.k. or could the cancer have spread to other areas making her at risk of dying from this disease ? I am really worried about her. She's 56. Thanks. wow that's really informative...not.

Answer: Hi, I had endometrial/otherwise known as uterine cancer at 31. When a complete hysterectomy was done, I became cancer free without having to undergo chemo or radiation. That was 2 years ago. She will have to keep regular cancer checkups with the gynecologist oncologist. During the hysterectomy, they will check to see if the cancer has spread by doing a lymph node dissection and abdominal washing. Pathology reports from these come back quickly. The report will also tell you the stage and grade of her cancer which will determine the likelihood of it returning. My stage and grade was 1b;2. Best wishes. Google Mayo Clinic endometrial cancer.
