What to Expect After a Cervical Cancer Diagnosis
Guidance and support through treatment and recovery.
Knowing what to expect after a cervical cancer diagnosis can calm your fears and give you a sense of control over your diagnosis.
Our cervical cancer team meets with thousands of patients just like you to answer questions and explain what happens next. You won’t be alone in the process.
Your team will include several doctors, nurses, dietitians, support staff, and others. They are here to help with any needs or concerns that you and your personal support team may have.
After you receive a cervical cancer diagnosis, we’ll work with you to decide the right course of action.
Our experts collaborate on every patient’s case during our weekly tumor board meeting to draw on the expertise of specialists from many fields to design the most effective treatment plan for you. We will discuss this plan with you during your first appointment. Our tumor board includes:
- Gynecologic oncologists, who perform surgery and prescribe chemotherapy
- Radiation oncologists
- Clinical trials experts
- Nurse navigators
- Social workers and other supportive oncology specialists
After your treatment plan is created, our nurse coordinators will help you make all your necessary appointments. In addition to your medical needs, you will have access to a wide variety of supportive services to help reduce anxiety and stress.
