Why didnt she get a hysterectomy and cut that cancer out before it killed her?
Probably because it has spread to other parts of the body before she knew she had it.
Uterine and ovarian cancers are not always easy to diagnose. Contrary to popular belief, PAP smears do not detect them. And often, they are asymptomatic. By the time any symptoms do appear, the cancer has already spread.
I know this because one of my friends had uterine cancer -- she was lucky...she is still living. Another person I know had ovarian cancer -- she wasn't so lucky.
