Storyboard Text

  • Hello, what brings you into the office today?
  • Hi Doctor. I've recently been experiencing unusual discharge, bleeding, and discomfort in my pelvic area.
  • I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. Let's start with a pelvic exam. I'd also like to order a pelvic ultrasound so we can gain a better understanding as to what could be causing you this pain and discomfort.
  • Ultrasound Exam
  • Hello, my name is David and I will be performing your exam today. Your Dr. ordered a transvaginal ultrasound to further assess your pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding. Do you have any questions before we begin?
  • OBGYN Office
  • The findings from your US exam were highly suspicious of uterine cancer. The report recommended an endometrial biopsy for further evaluation of the endometrial tissue. I can perform the biopsy right here in our office, you will not need anesthesia, and the procedure itself should take around 15-20 mins. We should receive lab results within 7-10 days.
  • Good Morning Doctor, have you received the results from my pelvic ultrasound?
  • OBGYN Office - Biopsy
  • Should I be worried about this biopsy? How is it performed?
  • To keep you safely positioned, I will insert a speculum and numb the area. I will then insert a very thin, flexible tool to gently suction out a tissue sample from the endometrial lining of your uterus. This tissue sample will be sent to pathology to look for precancerous or cancerous cells.
  • Biopsy Results
  • Your biopsy results came back and they were conclusive of Stage II Endometrial Carcinoma. Surgery, consisting of a total abdominal hysterectomy and adjuvant pelvic RT is the primary treatment. I will refer you to a Radiation Oncologist to get you set up for RT as soon as possible.
