At CTCA®, our multidisciplinary team of cancer experts works with each patient to develop a treatment plan tailored that patient’s specific needs. Each uterine cancer patient’s care team is typically led by a gynecologic oncologist, a doctor who treats cancers of the female reproductive system. Uterine cancer is often treated with a combination of treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy. Throughout the treatment process, our uterine cancer experts monitor patients’ progress and make changes when necessary.

Common treatments for uterine cancer include:

Gynecologic oncology
As a gynecologic cancer patient exploring treatment options at CTCA, you’ll meet with a gynecologic oncologist on your first visit.

Surgery
Surgical options for uterine cancer patients include hysterectomy and lymphadectomy.

Chemotherapy
Anti-cancer drugs are used to slow or stop the growth of rapidly dividing cancer cells.

Radiation therapy
The two main types of radiation therapy used to treat uterine cancer are external beam radiation therapy and high-dose rate brachytherapy.

Hormone therapy
Hormone therapy slows the growth of cancer cells by reducing hormone levels in the body.

Immunotherapy
Immunotherapy drugs are designed to stimulate the immune system to help it work better or by making cancer cells easier to recognize, exposing them to a potential attack.

"The care I received at CTCA still amazes me. I felt genuine concern and empathy. If I was having a meltdown moment, someone was there to hand me a tissue. No one made me feel silly about the questions I had, and my questions were answered. At CTCA, I felt like my doctor cared, and that he takes the time to care. I don’t see him or the members of my care team checking their watches during an appointment with me. That alone is extraordinary to me."
