diagnosed with fibroids, mother died of undiagnosed primary cancer

Hi, I'm 47 was just diagnosed with fibroids and my mother died 2 yrs 1 week ago of undiagnosed primary cancer. I know fibroids are rarely cancerous but I've already gone through many breast cancer tests over the last 20 yrs and so far thankfully come out clear. I am a little concerned that my luck is running out and this will be the "it" we all fear. After discussing with my primary care dr we have opted to do a partial hysterectomy and frankly I'm quite good with the decision. Seeing the OB/GYN on Tues to confirm treatment. My only symptons until my tubal ligation in April 2009 was heavy clotting which dr dismissed as normal for my age. Since sterilization symptoms have excallated to heavy heavy bleeding, major clots and a period every 18 days but lasts for 7-10 days, damn my bleeding exceeds my urine output when I visit the bathroom. I may have taken a more conservative approach with my treatment other than my mother's primary cancer was never determined and I've already gone through many test for breast cancer over the yrs. Just wanted to hear of other woman's thoughts and experiences of going through this. I do not want more children, I'm a grandmother so procreation is not an issue. Some friends think I'm being too drastic.
