    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    hi everybody

    i was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in situ of my cervix my oncologist did a hysterectomy and said it was just inside my cervix not my uterus so it is gone but i will have to see her on a regular basis now to make sure i dont get cancer somewhere else. im gonna talk to her more when i go back and see her but was just wondering what are my chances of getting a second type of cancer since i have already had it? i didnt need any treatments just a hysterectomy. thank you everybody and god bless

    Your chances of getting a second type of cancer are no greater now than before. Having had one type of cancer does not increase your risk of getting a different type. The risk of a cancer is that it is not caught before it has a chance to spread to another part of the body.
