How Is Uterine Cancer Treated?

If you have been diagnosed with uterine cancer, your doctor will most likely refer you to a gynecologic oncologist. If they don't, ask to be referred. A GynOnc specializes in gynecologic cancers including uterine cancer. 

Your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Some options to be considered are:

  • Surgery (dependant on the extent of cancer)

    • Simple hysterectomy - removal of the uterus and cervix​

    • Radical hysterectomy - removal of the uterus, cervix, upper part of the vagina, and nearby tissues

    • For women past menopause a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy may be performed which is the removal of both fallopian tubes and ovaries

  • Radiation therapy​

  • Chemotherapy

  • Hormone therapy

  • Targeted therapy

  • Immunotherapy

If you are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer you may want to take part in a Clinical Trial. Clinical Trials use new treatment options to see if they are safe and effective. Therefore, you would be receiving cutting-edge treatment and advancing medicine forward for all!

 

Women's Cancer Research Foundation has numerous open clinical trials. If you do not see a Clinical Trial in our queue, here are a few other sites to visit for Clinical Trials.
