I can't seem to find anything about getting a second primary cancer and it being endometrial. I was diagnosed last week with Serous Carcinoma, of endometrial origin and am meeting with gynocologic oncologists for a radical hysterectomy and probably chemo and rads. I started spotting and since I'm on Tamoxifen, they did a biopsy ASAP. I need others to walk me through this, this board was my haven during my breast cancer. BTW - if you know of another place like this, either a forum or a FB page, for Serous Carcinoma, I'd love to know. Thanks!!!

kmntwins,

I found a group for uterine cancer on the American Cancer Society website that is active. Unfortunately, not many of its participants have the serous variety.

Hystersisters kept me sane when I had endometrial cancer and a hysterectomy in 2008. It's very similar to this site, lots of information plus forums.

Endometrial cancer 2010, basal cell multiples, breast cancer 2018, kidney cancer 2018. Boring. Hope it stays that way. Dx 5/2018, ILC, Left, 2cm, Stage IA, Grade 1, 1/1 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- Surgery 7/10/2018 Lumpectomy: Left; Lymph node removal: Sentinel Surgery 8/7/2018 Radiation Therapy 10/28/2018 Whole-breast: Breast, Lymph nodes
