Your Cervical Cancer Diagnosis

You have received a diagnosis of cervical cancer. The amount of information you receive at the time of diagnosis can feel overwhelming. All at once, you may feel there are questions to be answered, decisions to be made, and so much information to be understood.

A team of healthcare professionals will work with you throughout your treatment process. Each of them has an important job, but the most vital member of the team is you. To play an active role during your treatment, it helps to learn as much about cervical cancer as possible.

Here you will learn what you need to know about cervical cancer. It will introduce you to the people who may be part of your treatment team. It will identify the different types of treatment for cervical cancer. It may also help prepare you to talk with your treatment team and to feel more confident about your treatment plan.
