vague answer. You said Yes..I can get a hysterectomy to avoid getting these types of of cancer. Would I have to have a radical hysterectomy or just part of one.? Say for instance Uterus or Cervix. And what about after the surgery? What kind of treatment for hormones?
OB GYN Doctor: khagihara, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
You can avoid endometrial and cervical cancers with a simple hysterectomy and ovarian cancer with oophorectomy. You don't need to have a radical hysterectomy. I think you are postmenopausal. You don't need hormonal therapy. But if you have menopausal symptoms and are taking hormones, you need to continue to take them.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
