What are the early symptoms of uterine cancer? What kind of diet should be given to the patient so as to cure it?

Abnormal bleeding: Uterine cancer announces itself most often as abnormal bleeding, less often as a mass. Diet does not cure cancer, and is in fact only of marginal help. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either very ignorant or is trying to mislead you. If you are at all concerned about your cycles, talk with your physician; he/she has heard it all before and you can do this without embarrassment.

Will the doc do other testing for ovarian and uterine cancer other than pap smear if I have symptoms?

Will the doc do other testing for ovarian and uterine cancer other than pap smear if I have symptoms?

Yes: Pap tests are only a screening test for cervical cancer. Unfortunately, there are no screening tests for uterine or ovarian cancer, although research is continuing. However, if you are experiencing symptoms, gynecologists should first perform a pelvic exam. A pelvic ultrasound or endometrial biopsy can also be helpful depending on your symptoms. Discuss options with your doctor.

Is uterine cancer common in 18 year olds?

Is uterine cancer common in 18 year olds?

Extremely rare: Uterine cancer in an 18 y/o is extremely rare, but that does not mean, it can't happen. There is also always a possibility that the cancer in the uterus is not the "primary" site, but that a metastasis from a cancer that is more common in younger females has made it into the uterus, causing symptoms, and making it appear as if the cancer came from the uterus.
