Diagnosis:  Endometrial cancer

Endometrial cancer: This refers to a type of cancer that majorly affects the uterine lining makes the cells to grow abnormally to the point where they can affect other body parts (Shafer & Van Le, 2013). During early onset of the condition, there will be excessive vaginal bleeding that does not have a relationship with menstrual periods. The other symptoms include painful sex, pain while urinating, vaginal discharge and painful pelvic area (Kulkarni & Harshavardhan, 2017). The Pap smear showed abnormal results of glandular cells that are abnormal. All the other tests were positive for endometrial cancer.

Endometrial Hyperplasia: Common presentation is abnormal uterine bleeding. In premenopausal women, the symptoms include irregular heavy menstruation or amenorrhea in some cases. Endometrial biopsy differentiates endometrial hyperplasia from cancer. However there in 42.6% cases of endometrial cancer, the initial diagnosis was hyperlasia with atapia (Endometrial Cancer, 2018).

Endometriosis: Symptoms include pain, dyspareunia and painful defecation. It is common in young premenopausal women. Physical examination reveals tenderness and nodularity. Pelvic ultrasound can be done to confirm endometrioma (Endometrial Cancer, 2018).


The ideal treatment for this cancer is through surgery where the tumor will be removed (Shafer & Van Le, 2013). Additionally, some of the healthy tissues that surround the tumor will be removed since they could be containing some cancer cells. Simple Hysterectomy will be ideal for the patient due to the extent of the spread of the cells (Eifel, 2015).  In this case, the cervix and uterus will be removed since the cancer cells have not spread so much to the other parts of the reproductive system.

The patient will have to keep visiting the health facility after the procedure for routine maintenance and test to ascertain that the tumor does not regenerate.

Reflection notes:

In this case, the diagnosis itself is a big shock to the patient. Also, the pain suffered by TS is limiting her from his daily activities. Ignoring these could attribute to mood disorders or depression. She should be introduced to support groups with people going through the same diagnosis. This will also help her overcome the mental and physical pain caused by the disease.
