Stay informed, but limit internet time

There is a lot of information available about uterine cancer on the internet. Stay informed without becoming overwhelmed. Take the information you find with you to doctor visits to discuss. However, if you get depressed or overwhelmed moderate your exposure and time on the internet.

 

Genetic Testing

Talk to your medical care team about genetic testing. Not only can testing help determine possible risks for cancer, it can also be an important tool for making the most of available treatment options.
