Click on the "Wellness Support" button below to connect with us and other women who have been diagnosed with a form of uterine cancer. You'll be so glad you did!
We encourage you to do the following things after receiving a uterine cancer diagnosis:
Find a gynecologic oncologist
Women whose surgery was performed by a gynecologic oncologist have better outcomes than patients whose surgeons were not gyecologic oncologists.
Join a uterine cancer support group
Consider joining a uterine cancer support group where you can share information and support with other women. The Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance has a Uterine / Endometrial Wellness Cancer Support Group that meets the second and fourth Monday of every month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. SHARE, an organization in New York also has some great virtual support groups for women who have been diagnosed with uterine cancer.
Stay informed, but limit internet time
There is a lot of information available about uterine cancer on the internet. Stay informed without becoming overwhelmed. Take the information you find with you to doctor visits to discuss. However, if you get depressed or overwhelmed moderate your exposure and time on the internet.
Understanding Uterine Cancer Treatments
Navigating and understanding treatment options are critical for a uterine cancer patient's survival. All treatment decisions should be made by a patient in consultation with their medical professional.
