Submucous fibroid is non cancerous condition and may not need treatment if one does not have symptoms.

Cancer endometrium would need uterus removal and may be radiotherapy.

A CT scan or MRI and biopsy would be recommended.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Oncologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

The reports suggest endometrial cancer.

Chemotherapy is not necessary.

But radiotherapy would be advised.

It is privilege assisting you.

This is Dr. David

sorry for the delay

I included the NCCN guideline recommendations for uterine cancer.

it sounds like she had a T1bNxM0 uterine cancer, grade 2

too bad they didn't take out any pelvic lymph nodes with her hysterectomy.

we can assume they are negative

most likely she doesn't need chemotherapy

at most, she may benefit from pelvic radiation therapy (if she didn't have pelvic lymph nodes removed) and vaginal cuff brachytherapy to decrease chances of the cancer coming back in the vaginal cuff

This is what doctor has prescribed here
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

I see.

Isreal.

the cancer doctor is a medical oncologist who only prescribes chemotherapy .

she needs to see a radiation oncology doctor about radiation.

I see RT there which stands for radiation therapy.
