Do you have blue eyes or brown eyes? Genetics is what gives you the color of your eyes and everything else about your specific body.
Unfortunately, Lynch syndrome causes endometrial cancers is about 80% of the women who test positive for this mutation. The genetist that you saw should have explained this to you. A mutation is a gene that has been miswired in some fashion. Color blindness is a gene mutation causing the person affected by it to have some inablility to see colors.
Check with the American Cancer Society for their information on endometrial cancer. They do have a very good article on diagnosis, surgery and treatment. Now all we have to do in convince the medical profession that women are not whiners and complainers over nothing.
My mother had endometrial cancer and died from colon cancer, typical indicators of Lynch syndrome. There have been six women out of sixteen in only two generations of my family that have ended up with reproductive cancers. Four are deceased. The medical professions response to my being "overly concerned with myself" was to tell me that there was nothing wrong and "you are not going to get cancer."
Well, my imagination is stage IIIC2 with metasis into my lungs. After a year of two different chemo treatments with a hyterectomy plus last spring, will under go further testing to see if anything worked.
What would my outcome be today if I had gotten the hysterectomy I asked for back in 2002? Not likely to be incurrable cancer.
I'll pray for everyone of the women in this world to receive the appropriate medical care. Don't need more deaths because doctors refuse to listen.
