Hi, yesterday we got our mom's diagnosis at the hospital but her doctor's out of town and would not be able to explain them not until Monday. So here's what the diagnosis says:
1/1 Right obturator node: positive for malignant cells

ADenocarcinoma, endometriod pattern, moderately differentiated endometrium invading more than half of the myometrium.

I took out some info that says no malignant cells.

Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The report as described by you suggests that she has endometrial cancer. The exact extent and stage of cancer spread can be discussed with her doctor/gynecologist who will explain to you based on correlation with her symptoms and examination finding. Wait for her treating doctor to arrive or if urgent, you can consider discussing her condition and reports with another gynecologist to take second opinion.
Take care.
