If there is a growth it can be seen by USG but for early detection pap's smear and colposcopy is to be done.

hi! I am 52 yrs old, a mother of 5 & currently undergoing investigations for cervical cancer. I had lower abdominal pain on & off with vaginal discharges (watery) since few months. Accidentally it was found out during an abdominal ultrasound: Uterus normal sized measures 6.2 x 5.1 cms. Endometrium - 1.31 cm with hypoechoic shadows most likely blood. Rt. ovary - 2.01 x 1.87 cms. Lt. ovary - 1.67 x 1.15 cm. No adnexal masses detected. No free fluid in the cul de sac. Cervix appears normal The fluid in my uterus was removed by D&C wherein a biopsy was done & here is the finding: Uterine cervix, cervical biopsy from cervical growth: - Invasive moderately to poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with glandular extension. - No definite vascular invasion seen in this biopsy specimen. My OBG told me that it is a stage 2 Cevical CA. She ordered for me CT scan & MRI, both with contrasts. here is my CT result: Impression: Bulky uterine cervix Multiple non-enhancing lesions in both lobes of liver ? cysts ?? metastasis. Ultrasound correlation is recommended for differentiation Low attenuating lesion of fat density in the right renal lower pole possibly lipoma My MRI will be resulted after 2 days. I am very anxious & afraid about this. Can you help me more on this? What is the next best thing to do?

I just had a mammogram and they detected something in it. I have breast implants. This has happened before but it turned out to be nothing first time, this time its different - I have swelling and some pain under my arm. They are sending me to another doctor, I am scared and don't know what to expect.

my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. she had had a standard mammogram which picked it up. 3 years previous she had a clear mammogram. she couldnt feel any lumps herself, but after the mammogram she was called in to say there was something wrong. she was called in for a biopsy. at the biopsy she was told, that she had at least two tumours in same breast and when they pulled the fluid off that she had cancer. they didnt even need to send it off anywhere to tell her this. she then went for a mastectomy,and they removed her breast and lymph nodes. she was told 22 lymph nodes were cancerous (i dont know how many she had, if any, over and above the 22 ) and it was aggressive. she had chemo then radiation followed by a daily pill (eg. armidex but im unsure). i cant establish the full facts but when she does have a check up they don't take any blood test. she had a premliminay bone scan when diagnosed and was told it wasnt in her bones. she doesnt say much about it,but i have noticed that recently she has left the room feeling sick and my son has told me that she has also been clutching her throat. i really dont have a clue what the prognosis is and am obviously worried
