So here's my story and frustration. Let me know what you think..... aprox 6 years ago I had extreme pain, irregular menstrual cycles I did not have one for over a year. During the time I had the severe pain on my Left side along with greenish discharge and fluid for aprox 6 months I have several ultrasounds, paps, swabs, etc everything negative and fine. The Dr's then decided to do a scope along with a Biopsy of the uterus, there findings a Haystack fluid filled cyst with 350mls of fluid, and Several other cysts. Couple weeks later I was asked to come to the drs office and bring support. More findings from the biopsy, 3 drs looked at the cells of the biopsy and it was found that I had a Placental site trophoblastic tumor, only 100 cases in the world at that time. The dr said he had never seen such a case, he then gave me hcg test all negative and an ultrasound to see if he could find a mass which was negative he then brought me into office again and said "I'm going to assume you don't have it" "I think" the "biopsy was incorrect" ????? WHAT???? Incorrect well they were incorrect about the pain, the cyst, and now a rare tumor?? If it was a common tumor i could maybe see it but something like this. I had every sign and symptom but with negative HCG result. I asked if he would do another biopsy to be sure or something and he said no i was fine and to go home. I could not believe it. Now 6 years later I now have a lump on my cervix, and am going for a ct scan to see whats up, ordered by a different dr. Can biopsies be wrong? if I have a tumor and it is what it was 6 years ago believe me the dr will pay!. He will no longer have a job. Here's to fingers crossed that Im OK.
