    28 years old Endometrioid cancer due to overweight

    Hi, im residing in Singapore. I was diagnosed with endometrioid adenocarcinoma when i was 27 years old.
    It has being a year since the treatment with Megesterol 160mg once a day.
    I went through dilatation and curretage every 3 months for the last 1 year and all and the most recent histopathology report still shows a FIGO grade 1 cancer cells with focal mucinous differentiation. It also says that it shows an effect of exogenous progesterone therapy with focal chronic endometritis.
    My gynae oncologist in KKH in Singapore has suggested no other medications that i could be given and removing of my uterus is the only option.
    Thus i implore anyone here who could reccomend another doctor who would be able to give me a 2nd opinion. Or anyone here who has other reccomendations.

    Few others questions and worries i have:
    1) is it going to spread to my blood, lymph nodes quickly?
    2) I have had irregular menstrual period since young. do i have time to delay the surgery and go for traditional chinese medicine?
    3) when i ask my doctors for the possible cause of cancer developing, they blame it on my BMI of 35.8 and says fat cells attract and nuture the cancer cells. And since the start of the treatment 1 year ago, they have encouraged weight loss management but being on the progesterone pills, i really could not lose any weight but yet gained 8kg in this 1 year. If this is true, and im so desperate to decrease the amount of fats in my body, should i go for liposuction?

    All help/input is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Hello Chikamon,

    I am sorry you are having to continue on with your fight still have one year.

    As you are in Singapore, I am assuming you are wanting a second opinion there. I am afraid I do not know your health system and therefore I am unable to assist you. Can you ask your family doctor to assist you with this?

    As for your other questions regarding spreading and the cause of your cancer, we are not doctors or medical specialists but rather patients and caregivers who can provide support to you on your journey. We speak only of our own stories and experiences.

    We are also a scientific based forum. Although it is completely your choice should you wish to explore alternate therapies and treatments, we are unable and will not comment on this matter.

    If you would like our support while you are on this journey and continue to take a scientific based treatment, please continue to keep us posted on how you are doing. We can be there to listen and answer some questions to the best of our knowledge.

    I wish you all the best.
