Private Uterine Cancer Diagnostics
Uterine cancer diagnostics can help to check for signs of uterine cancer in women who may be at high risk of the disease, or experiencing suspicious symptoms. Such tests can help doctors find uterine cancer early, when it is most treatable.
There are several tests that can be used to check for uterine cancer, including pelvic exams and imaging tests such as transvaginal ultrasound. In some cases, Mr Naji may also recommend a hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy, in which a small sample of tissue is taken from the uterus and examined for cancer cells.
It's important to talk to Mr Naji about your individual risk factors for uterine cancer and whether instant testing is appropriate for you. Early detection and treatment of uterine cancer can greatly improve your chances of a successful outcome.
Types of Uterine Cancer
There are two main types of uterine cancer: endometrial cancer and uterine sarcoma.
Endometrial cancer, also known as uterine cancer, is the most common type of uterine cancer and may sometimes be referred to as ‘womb cancer’. It begins in the lining of the uterus and is most commonly diagnosed in women who are postmenopausal. Symptoms of endometrial cancer may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, and discomfort during intercourse.
Uterine sarcoma is a rare type of uterine cancer that develops in the muscle or other supporting tissues of the uterus. Symptoms of uterine sarcoma may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, and discomfort during intercourse. This type of cancer is more likely to affect women who have gone through menopause.
It's important to see a consultant if you have any symptoms of uterine cancer, as early detection and treatment can greatly improve your chances of a successful outcome.
Uterine cancer symptoms
Symptoms of uterine cancer may include:
Abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding between periods, after menopause, or after sex
Pelvic pain or discomfort
Pain during intercourse
Increased frequency of urination
Pain or difficulty while urinating
These symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, so it's important to see a consultant if you have any concerns, as early detection and treatment of uterine cancer can greatly improve your chances of a successful outcome.
Risk factors for uterine cancer
Some factors that may increase your risk of developing uterine cancer include:
Age: Uterine cancer is more common in women who are postmenopausal.
Obesity: Being overweight or obese can increase your risk of uterine cancer.
Hormone therapy: Using estrogen without progesterone for a long time can increase your risk of endometrial cancer.
Diabetes: Women with diabetes may have an increased risk of uterine cancer.
Tamoxifen use: Taking tamoxifen for breast cancer treatment for a prolonged time can increase your risk of uterine cancer.
Family history: Having a family history of uterine or colon cancer may increase your risk of uterine cancer.
Prior radiation therapy: Having radiation therapy to the pelvis can increase your risk of developing uterine cancer.
It's important to talk to your consultant about your individual risk factors for uterine cancer and what you can do to reduce your risk.
Treatment for uterine cancer
If you have been diagnosed with uterine cancer, Mr Naji will work with you to create a treatment plan that is right for you. There are several treatment options for uterine cancer, including surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
Surgery is often the first line of treatment for patients with uterine cancer. Depending on the stage of your cancer and other factors, Mr Naji will discuss your case within a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists and may recommend one of several different types of surgery, including:
Simple hysterectomy: This is a surgery to remove the uterus. In some cases, the ovaries and fallopian tubes may also be removed.
Complex hysterectomy: This is a more extensive surgery that involves removing the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and nearby lymph nodes.
After surgery, Mr Naji may recommend additional treatments, such as radiation therapy or chemotherapy, to help kill any remaining cancer cells and reduce the risk of the cancer coming back. This will also be managed within the multidisciplinary team.
It's important to remember that every patient’s experience with cancer is different, and Mr Naji will work with you to create a treatment plan that is right for your individual situation. It's also important to take care of yourself during treatment, both physically and emotionally. This may include getting plenty of rest, eating a healthy diet, and seeking support from friends, family, and healthcare providers.
