Mass is shiny and smooth "like a bone"...cancer?

My mother, who is 64, had been experiencing some light postmenapausal bleeding in late February, that was the only time this happened. She immediately made an appointment with her doctor and they performed a D&C this week. In the D&C, the doctor said that he found a polyp (which he removed), and he said he found something that he has never seen before in his entire career (almost 30 years)....he said it was a mass that appeared to be shiny and smooth "like a bone" and appeared "florescent". He was completely baffled and was only able to remove a small part of it to be tested for cancer. We should know the results in a couple of weeks. Of course our family is very worried. He said Mom would have to have a hysterectomy either way, whether it is just a really strange calcium deposit or whether it is cancer or something else. Any thoughts on what this strange mass could be or any thoughts from anyone in general who has any experiences of knowledge or insight? It seems like just not knowing is one of the hardest parts. Thanks everyone.


Note: I just wanted to add that the Dr. told my Dad all of this when he met with him, and I wonder if there's any way he meant to say that it "appeared" florescent on the screen to help make it show up better? Or if my Dad just misunderstoood that part? I've never heard of a florescent growth and can't find any information about that.
