Uterine Cancer: Treatments and Services

Women with Uterine Cancer often have a variety of treatment options.  Most women are treated with surgery, some with radiation therapy, and a few women are treated with hormonal therapy.  Some patients have a combination of therapies. 

The most common surgery is one that removes the uterus (hysterectomy) through a small incision in the abdomen.  Both fallopian tubes and both ovaries are also removed.  The lymph nodes surrounding the uterus may also be removed.

Internal and External radiation methods are used to shrink tumors or to lower the risk of the cancer returning in the abdomen.

Hormonal Therapy will prevent cancer cells from gaining what they need in order to grow.
