How Does Your Doctor Know What Treatment to Suggest for Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer can be treated and often cured. The recommendation for your treatment depends on these factors:

  • Type of uterine cancer you have

  • Grade and stage of the cancer

  • Size and location of the tumor

  • Your general health

  • Your age

  • Whether the cancer has spread to other parts of your body

  • Your personal concerns and preferences

Treatment can often control the spread of uterine cancer. It can also be used to improve your quality of life by controlling symptoms of the disease.

Once you know the type, stage, and grade of your uterine cancer, it’s time to decide on a treatment plan. This section will help you understand your options and decide what’s best for you. Meeting with your doctor to talk about your treatment choices will be one of the most important visits you’ll have with your doctor.

It may take time to decide on the best plan. Ask your doctor about how much time you can take to explore your options. You may want to get another opinion before deciding on a treatment. You may want to talk with your family and friends.
