My friend was diagnosed with endometrial cancer, another one with uterine and was not detected with a yearly exam or pap only when they ordered a vaginal ultrasound was it found. How can I get started having doctors require this as a yearly exam like pap, breast and the 2yr dexa. My friend is still here, but left go would be gone by now. Whom do I need to contact to move this along? Do I need petitions? Please help me I am determined to fix this before it is too late for someone else. peats at email@example.comView Thread
