I just got this diagnosis yesterday and am very scared, as I have 4 young kids. I would appreciate your opinion on this diagnosis, and what sort of outcome I should expect.
Histologic Grade: G1: well differentiated
Stromal invasion: Depth 5.7mm Horizontal extent 15mm
Endocervical Margin: not involved by invasive carcinoma
Distance of invasive carcinoma from margin: 13mm
Squamous neoplasia Not involved by intraepithelial squamous neoplasia. Not involved by adenocarcinoma in situ
Exocervical margin: Involved by invasive carcinoma. Not involved by intraepithelial squamous neoplasia. Not involved by adenocarcinoma in situ
Deep margin: involved by invasive carcinoma. Not involved by intraepithelial squamous neoplasia. Not involved by adenocarcinoma in situ
Lymph-vascular invasion: not identified
Additional Pathologic Findings: adenocarcinoma in situ
The invasive adenocarcinoma extends underneath the squamous mucosa to reach the deep exocervical margin. The endocervical margin and the portions of the deep margin closer to the endocervical end of the cone are free of tumor. There is no evidence of lymphatic space invasion in the tissue examined. The squamous exocervical mucosa is disrupted, however, there is no evidence of squamous dysplasia in any of the tissue.
Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that your prognosis is excellent. I would, however, in consultation with a gyn oncologist, recommend further surgery. I am actually glad that you already have your family, as you will most likely need to undergo a hysterectomy. Typically this surgery is very well tolerated, and your ovaries can be preserved in most cases. I would definitely want the assistance of a gyn oncology specialist in reviewing the pathology and determining what is the next step. Good luck! Dr B
