Dr. David :

I am sorry for your daughter.

Dr. David :

womb cancer or uterine cancer would be very very rare in a 23 year old patient.

Dr. David :

if biopsy of the uterus shows cancer, then the treatment and cure would be a surgery to remove the womb. this is called a hysterectomy.

Dr. David :

usually sexual abuse during childhood doesn't cause cancer of the uterus.

Dr. David :

has she had a uterine biopsy yet?
