Power morcellators are used in eliminating benign (non-malignant) tissue enlargements along the lining of the uterus. It works by breaking up the tissue growths and vacuuming them out of the body. In some cases, however, undetected cancerous tissues might also be shredded by the device, causing cancer cells to spread and progress aggressively.
Speak with your physician right away if you experience any of these uterine cancer symptoms after undergoing a procedure involving a power morcellator:
- Bleeding between menstrual periods
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Pain in the pelvis area
- Vaginal bleeding after menopause
- A watery discharge from the vagina, sometimes with streak of blood
