mioom

Hi dok, ek was gediagnoseer met ''n mioom (buitekant van baarmoeder) so 12-13jaar gelede. Ek het ''n seuntjie (12) na die diagnose gehad - ek was 41jaar. Tans op 53jaar gaan ek gereeld vir papsmere, is dit iets om oor bekommerd te wees? Ek ervaar geen pyn of ongemak, behalwe erge menstruasie vir die eerste 2-3dae(maar is dit al gewoond). Kry mens " goedaardige"  miome? As daar fout is kan hulle dit met ''n papsmeer optel. My tweede vraag. My ma is op 49jaar oorlede aan eiestokkanker. Huidiglik is dit my grootste vrees, kan dit met ''n papsmeer opgetel word. My GP sê  nee en nou die dag toe ek sy venoot (ouerige dokter) vra, sê  hy ja mens behoort aangesien alles tog " gelink"  is (sy woorde). Dankie vir die luister en lekker dag vir u. Groete Sarah!!

Pap smears only pick up cervical cancer. Cancer of the ovary of in a myoma will not be picked up on pap smears. Myomas have a low chance of malignancy nad this is usually detected if they suddenly increaSe in size, thus it is important to go for check-ups every 6-12 months.
