In general, women are followed with exams (including a pelvic exam) every 3 to 4 months for 3 years, and then every 6 months. In addition, CA 125, and imaging studies such as x-rays, CT scans or MRIs may be periodically performed, especially if you have any new pains or symptoms.
After surviving cancer, women look for a community of support and guidance. In a video produced by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, survivors share how they live and thrive after endometrial cancer. As described by one survivor, “You can get better.”
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. After creating the month in 1999, the Foundation strives to bring attention about these cancers through public awareness campaigns.
