I am not an ultrasound tech, so don't know for sure, but the ultrasound did not detect mine because it was so he says "hidden among the fibroids". Why are they sending you to a cancer dr. before they even know if you have cancer? Are they suspicious of something? Most fibroids are not cancerous, but I am not sure since I am not a dr. if they look like cancer.
By all means if he sends you for more testing get it done. You are important to your family and they would be lost if you got sick. I know for a fact. At first my whole family was there for me, but now it is only 3 of them. My husband acts like I am gone already, he has never been supportive of me. So, I am not shocked by this. His whole and I mean whole family has passed with cancer and he is the only one left. That is why I was so schocked that I got it. I have found some wonderful caring people on this website, they email me and assure me of what they have gone through. It is a good thing if you have a dr. that wants further testing. Go for it!
They must have some kind of lab results to justify a consult with an oncologist, maybe they got some endometrial cells from the pap smear that show pre-cancerous cells? That is what happened to me, my lab results showed precancerous changes, but not actual cancer, therefore, they sent me along to the oncologist because they wanted him to supervise my case and be in the loop on any developments in case it turned out that it became cancer and there would be no delay to get him on my case immediately. Please keep your head up and don't panic, but a very thickened lining needs to be thoroughly investigated or you will never have any peace about it. Try to think about it in terms of getting more information so that you can take better care of yourself whatever happens in your case.
Also, I was told that in women that show pre-cancerous changes, there are a certain percentage of those who turn out to actually already have cancer that they can only detect if the uterus and/or lymph nodes get removed. I had a laparoscopy where they went in with a scope and looked at the outer surface of my uterus, ovaries, and abdomen and they saw nothing cancerous-looking in there. I thought, GREAT!, but then was told that it is possible that it could invisibly spread to lymph nodes and still look normal on the outside.
These female parts are a little too much fun sometimes, aren't they?
Long time since I talked to you. I am glad you made it through the hysteroscopy. I am not sure I had one of those. Probably not since I got a dummy for a doctor. I hope it all turns out good for you. Still waiting for chemo to start again. I am taking B17 in the meantime, dr. told me not to take anything, but I am not like that. I need to do something to help myself while I wait. Keep us posted on how your tests turn out. We are there for you. santee Carolyn
