Thank you for this article. I am sending it to my Dr. and I will discuss with him about me not taking the HRT. How did you deal with hot flashes and all of the changes that your body goes through? I don't mean to give too much detail, what alternatives is there to help other issues vaginal?
Thanks again for this, I have been searching for this information.

So does all of the symptoms eventually go away? I have to keep my house around 64 degrees in order for me to get through the hot flashes. Night sweats and flushes that I cannot control. The flushes just happen without any warning and it is so embarrssing.
Have you ever thought that our cancer was formed by inherited gene? I believe it is. We just haven't research it enough.
Thanks for talking.

FOXL 2 gene mutation, in most cases (<a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20198651">supporting case study</a>
I was diagnosed jan this year at 33 years old. One surgery removed my volleyball sized tumor and the other was staging and a complete hysterectomy.
If you have not found this yet, I'm sure you may have, please read this<a href=" https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B56SuugWxnwROTM0MWU1YWEtMzc1 for dummies</a>.

Sorry for the HTML in the post. It would not accept the post without it then it did not use it.

A volleyball sized tumor? Did you have any symptoms before finding out what was wrong?
Also, the FOXL2 gene... I don't understand any of that DNA language. Any of you out there scientist or a biologist?

TB in GA,
I was 3 months postpartum so the things I should have noticed I did not. I was gaining weight, my stomach was distended, I felt full, I felt like I was still pregnant. There was some pain that came and went for a month, then a pain that would drop me to my knees (it would leave as quick as it came).
If you read the paper (the second link) you will have better understanding of the DNA part of GCT.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
