Hello, I was just diagnosed yesterday with Complex Hyperplasia with Atypia. I am 50, and in peri. It started with excessive bleeding for 2.5 months. I had an ultrasound that showed my endometrial lining was 21mm followed by biopsy. I was put on BC for oa month to try to balance things out. It made me feel awful! They took me of of it yesterday, after confirming my biopsy results, and being estrogen dominent. I have about a month wait to hear from a cancer clinic, and then a couples of weeks to wait for an appointment. My dr. warned me that the results are based on the biopsy, and they don't know if there is any cancer cells above or around it. They won't know for about 6 weeks until they do a CT scan. I am debating weather or not to get a CT on my own, and if it would make any difference. I also don't know if it would speed my treatment up, or if the clinic would want to repeat the CT, and I don't want to be exposed to it twice. We have a huge history of cancer in the family. My Mom died from breast cancer, and had a complete hysterectomy when she was 38 not sure the reason other then excessive bleeding. I may need a total hysterectomy as well depending where things are at after the CT. My Dad also died from cancer as well as other relatives. They are putting me on progestrone just to get me through until I have my consult. I am looking for information on other peoples' experience in dealing with this. What did you do moving forward? How many people have been diagnosed with complex hyperplasia atypia, then found out they had cancer after hysterectomy? Thank you!
