Uterine Cancer


Each year in the United States, approximately 40,000 women are diagnosed with uterine cancer (also known as endometrial cancer). It is estimated that there are more than 572,000 uterine cancer survivors in the U.S. today. In an effort to improve both survival and quality of life among women with uterine cancer, researchers have explored new approaches to surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and supportive care (care to manage cancer symptoms and treatment side effects). Understanding uterine cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of uterine cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative uterine cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from uterine cancer treatment. The Cancer Consultants Uterine Cancer Information Center has been designed to help patients understand uterine cancer and uterine cancer treatment options while providing ongoing information, inspiration, support, and community to individuals affected by a diagnosis of uterine cancer.
