i think it is a little early to be jumping the hyterectomy thing. I think you should go get the knot checked out by a dr and mention about your moms health history. There are a few different types of hyterectomy...theres a partial where the ovaries are left(no hormones needed and still have somewhat of a cycle....also called a radical hysterctomy). there is the full hysterectomy where everything is taken and you go into a menopause and then take hormones forever which can make you moody, some gain weight on it. With a full one, it can cause you to get wider, more hair growth on face, arms etc.....
i suggest going to the dr about it before concluding on a hysterectomy
