Hi I've had a whirlwind few days, I've not felt well for about a year and have been numerous times to the gp, finally one seemed to listen to me and started tests. Fri teatime I went for a general ultrasound, which turned into an internal ultrasound as well, anyway I seemed to be ages and they said it looked like I need referring to gynaecology. By the time I got home my gp had rang to ask me to go in Mon morning!

So off I go today and I'm told they think I have endometrial cancer! The doctor was lovely and talked me through it all and then told me she was referring me on a 2wk urgent referral.

Think it's only just sinking in, I know it's not a definite diagnosis until they do a biopsy, I suppose I'm just wondering what I should expect to happen next?

I'm sorry for what you've been told Sm24 but as you've said, nothing is definite until the results of your biopsy come back. I can see you've been getting some lovely support from a few of our members already so I just wanted to give you our cancer nurses telelphone number in case you wanted to talk things through with them. You can contact them on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

Wishing you the best of luck with your referral Sm24.

Kind regards,

Hi Steph

Thank you for your reply, I have now received my appointment for a week on Thurs, should I expect them to do a biopsy on that appointment do you know?
