The thing that has helped me thrive most is the support I’ve received from family and friends and also a few support groups on Facebook specifically for endometrial cancer. It can be quite lonely at times but these groups have helped a lot! 


Megan's Story

I was diagnosed in 2017 with endometrial complex hyperplasia (age 22). Had that treated with the Mirena coil and got the all clear to try for a baby in October 2018. 3 months later I ask for an ultrasound as I hadn’t bled at all. Initially was refused but finally got one in March this year. That showed my womb lining was very thick again and cystic. I was fast tracked to gynaecology and had a hysteroscopy and biopsy in April. Results showed complex hyperplasia was back but now Atypical (pre cancer), plus a patch that looked like a grade 1 carcinoma.

They’d only know 100% if they did a hysterectomy but I refused so now on fertility saving treatment and under oncology. Due to have another hysteroscopy and biopsy in August to see if the hormone treatment has worked. I have the mirena back in and also taking Provera.
