Just Diagnosed

You have just received a diagnosis of a gynecologic cancer. The amount of information you receive at the time of diagnosis can feel overwhelming. You may feel that there are too many unanswered questions, decisions to be made and so much information to be understood.

Hopefully you are receiving care from a gynecologic oncologist. Gynecologic oncologists are board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists who have an additional 3-4 years of specialized training in treating gynecologic cancers from an American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology-approved fellowship program. A gynecologic oncologist can manage your care from diagnosis to completion of treatment providing both surgery and drug therapies (chemotherapy).

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer hopes that the information provided on this website will help you through this challenging time.
