    Cervical Cancer diagnosis after hysterectomy
    An_252357 posted:
    My friend who hasn't had insurance in yrs recently had a hysterectomy after a "Pre- Cancerous" diagnosis. They also did exploratory surgery. They removed many tumors, one the size of watermelon that had to be cut out in sections, others were the size of grapefruits and cantelopes. Many of the tumors had calcified. The tumors had actually swallowed her female organs. Now, one month aft surgery she gets lab results that say all other organs were good, but she did have cervical cancer. Now she is going to meet w oncologist to decide the next steps. Lymph nodes, biopsy or removal. I can't find any information abt diagnosis / treatment for cervical cancer aft hysterectomy.

    Treatment would generally depend on whether the cancer had spread; lymph node biopsy would likely be the next step to dtermine this.
