Uterine Lining

My Dr. said my uterine lining is at a 7. If is goes to a 8 or 9 it would be cancer. What to do now?

Re: Uterine Lining

There is a common way to deal with it. A little radical but not so bad. If you don't need any more kids, you can consider taking it off. Some women had pre-cancerous cell in the uterus and they chose to take it off by sucking it out and kept the ovaries for hormone/estrogen.
If this is a problem and you worry about cancer, take it off the easy way now before it is too late.

Good luck,

Re: Uterine Lining

Please don't think for a moment that it means you have cancer. I'm 54 and my uterine lining had enlarged to 21! I was scared out of my wits that it was cancer since I have several high risk factors for uterine cancer (obesity, high blood pressure, late onset of menopause) bu I had a D&C, biopsy and hysteroscopy such that my doctor could look inside my uterus to make sure everything is ok! A huge polyp was growing in my uterus so he performed a polypectomy and removed it. My biggest advice is pray about it, and then go to a doctor who will do what needs to be done to evaluate why your uterine lining is enlarging. That means ultrasound, then D&C, biopsy and hysteroscopy, which is the ONLY way to find out what is going on. Until then, don't worry, because what your doctor said is so wrong. Just becuase your uterine lining enlarges DOES NOT mean it's cancer!!!!!!!!
