Endometrial cancer: How fast should you have surgery?
Hi – I was diagnosed with endometrial adenocarcinoma in early December.. Per biopsy pathology report (Dec 8th) it is FIGO stage 1-2, with more focal solid areas with clear cell feature and cannot rule out higher grade carcinoma. My Oncologist said they would stage and grade the cancer after the hysterectomy. I am concerned that my surgery is not until Feb 10th and if it is a higher grade (more aggressive) that waiting that long puts me at risk for the cancer quickly growing. Should I be concerned? Or is this a reasonable time to wait for surgery?
