Hello leedeenich,

It's reasonable to fear cancer when there are abnormal symptoms, but often our fears are our worst enemy, and it turns out to be something else entirely. It is extremely important that you see your doctor as soon as possible, if you haven't seen him/her already. Your doctor can assess the problem and refer you to the appropriate specialist, or for the appropriate tests to determine exactly what is going on. It's not impossible that someone might retain endometrial tissue after a hysterectomy, if there had been profuse growth prior to the hysterectomy, which may cause similar problems. The best resolution of any diagnosis will come with prompt evaluation and treatment, and I urge you to see your doctor right away.

Best of luck to you.
