| | Just had endometrial biopsy and worried about results
I just found this site while looking for information about the proceedure I just had. For the last few months I have been having pain during intercourse and my period has started the day after. My PCP sent me to have a transvaginal ultrasound that confirmed only small cysts and referred me to a gyn.
Went today and they decided to do an endometrial biopsy. After I have looked up information I am more concerned now then I was before the proceedure. (I know, the evils of the internet). As I have looked at the risk factors and signs of cancer, I realized I would finally win something if this were a contest.
I was only married 3 years ago, so very little sex until recently and no kids.
I am quite over weight
I have never had regular cycles
no I am having both pain and bleeding during sex (same thing happened from the ultrasound. I know that is not supposed to be painful, but it was and period started the next day.)
Also, I have always been scared of going for those yearly exams, so I have only had 3 in my life.
Now I am getting terrified I have let myself get cancer.
Anyone know if there are symptoms of the later stages of endometrial cancer. I know in the early stages there are many things that can be done and a good prognosis, but I have also had problems with lack of bladder control and crazy bowel habits. Now I have myself wondering if this could be a sign on something more serious.
I guess after all of that rambling, I am wondering if there are signs to the later stages and if the ultrasound or the exam today would have shown up something if it were a later stage cancer? I know the results will be in around a week from now, but it has only been a few hours and i am getting scared.
If you are still here, thanks for reading and sorry for being so windy.
