Complex Endometrial Hyperplasia & Breast Cancer, HELP!

I am 54 years old and had breast cancer 3 years ago.  After cut off the lump in the breast and some lymph, I didn't do the chemotherapy, and only take the radiotherapy of both breasts. Since then I didn't take any medicine due to my doctor. Howerer, I do have uterine bleeding about twice or three times a month and anemia, I took it as menopausal symptoms carelessly. Several days ago, I went to hospital to do the uterine apoxesis,the result of biopsy said that I've had Complex Endometrial Hyperplasia. Now goes some differnt opinions from doctors, some said that I must have total hysterectomy surgery, but some said injecting progesterone is better and total hysterectomy isn't necessary. So now I am confused and wondered which is better or is there some more useful therapy. Because my condition is a little complex, I have to consider the breasts while I accept treatment about Endometrial Hyperplasia, so please give me some advices. Thanks a lot!

I would recommend getting a second opinion, and maybe even a third one. Your case is complex since you've had cancer and any kind of hormone therapy is not usually recommend if you've had cancer.
