I have to have a hysteroscopy on 2 Septermber to take biopsies to check I dont have endometrial cancer.
I had a hysteroscopy in July 2015 as I had a thickened lining and a polyp. The polyp was removed and biopsies were taken which came back as all clear. At the time I was having heavy periods and a lot of pain, but mostly normal cycles. I was in perimenopause and sometimes my cycles were longer and sometimes shorter. I had one period in the April that dragged on for nearly a month but was very light most of the time.
After the hysteroscopy the pain subsided and I had 3 normal periods. I then started my November period as expected but it was extremely light and would disappear for a couple of days and then come back and then disappear again. This carried on for a few weeks until towards the end of December when I had very heavy bleeding and clots for a while. I continued bleeding until end January when I stopped for a week. A Vaginal Ultrasound at the beginning of Jan showed thickened lining still. I then bled for three weeks in February, three weeks in March, one week of brown spotting in April, bled for the whole of May, three weeks of no bleeding and then bled for the whole of July. One week of no bleeding and then I'm bleeding through and still today.
I am beside myself with worry that the hysteroscopy is going to show cancer because of this abnormal bleeding. The GP had wanted me to have the coil but I refused and it wasnt until May that they referred me to gynae - only getting an appointment last week with a consultant.
I asked the consultant if it was cancer and becasue I had been bleeding so much since Dec, would that mean the cancer would likely by now have spread outside and she obviously couldnt answer that.
By the way I am 49.
