I have cervical and uterine cancer should I get a particial hysterectomy or a full hysterectomy?


Also what are the chances of the cancer spreading to my ovaries and should the doctor tack my bladder when he's done. Also how long is the healing process afterwards.
Ihave asked the doctor about a full hysterectomy but he said I was to young and thats why he wants to do a particial
----------

I don't know about the bladder part, but I would recommend the full hysterectomy. That procedure will remove all of the type of tissue that has the cancer (your cervix and uterus). Whether or not the cancer will spread depends on the type of tumor you have--is it benign or malignant? If it is benign, then that is a type of tumor that does not spread. A malignant tumor can and will spread unless all of the cancerous cells are removed. If you remove all of the cancerous tissue, then the chances will be lower that it will spread.

Talk your doctor about all of these questions, and if his answer isn't enough, then talk to another doctor--or two or three. This isn't the time to be relying totally on facts off the internet, though researching things yourself is smart and can point you in the right direction. I hope everything goes smoothly, and take care!  (+ info)

what are the symptoms of cervical,and uterine cancer?


Don't wait till you have symptoms. Get a pap smear. If you think you may have one of these problems you should put cervical dysplasia in your search engine and do some research. Mostly, you need to get a pap smear. God Bless!!  (+ info)

Can cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancer be detected without a pap smear? or are pap smears the only way?

I had a uterine biopsy & cervical biopsy yesterday. Are these common?


The nurse told me since my last pap was normal and not that long ago that if it is cancer it'd be caught early, but I worry about needing a hysterectomy. I have never had a baby nor had female problems.
My May pap was abnormal but the one before it was normal. I wonder why these biopsies were requested.
