Re: Could this be anything other than cancer?
I am sorry that you had cancer before. I am cancer survivor too. I need to congratulate you for having 3 kids after the whole thing! Amazing!
Well, you just have to wait for the report. No need to guess this. For sure there may be a problem, but it may just be some growth which does not have to be cancer. It may be precancer and etc.
However, since you have kids, you don't need to keep the uterus. Many people do this: they take out the uterus by sucking it out (no need for open surgery) and keep the ovaries for hormone issue. So far they are doing fine. My sister had done this too and she is Ok without cancer over that area. The thing is, once you got a problem in the uterus like most women do, you better take it out for good. My Mom is in the 80s and she also has some growth. Some doctors suggested following up given her old age, and some suggested to take it out. Biopsy hurts so it is better to take it out. So it is still a problem when the woman gets older!!
But it is not to say that you have to take it out. Just let you know the option.
