Screenings for Cervical Cancer
Check with your doctor for guidance on when to get Pap and HPV tests. These screenings look for unusual cervical cells and human papillomavirus, which can lead to cancer.
Ovarian Cancer Genetics
Ask your doctor to refer you to a genetic counselor at AnMed for help to determine if you have inherited gene changes that put you at risk for ovarian cancer.
Cancer Care Team
Your team at AnMed Cancer Center will include different types of doctors who work together to create a personalized treatment plan for you. Each doctor is a cancer specialist in different treatment areas, such as surgery, medical oncology or radiation oncology. Your team will also have a nurse navigator, nurses, social workers, dietitians, counselors, pharmacists and others who will contribute to the excellent cancer care you’ll get at AnMed.
Your treatment options will depend on your cancer type and stage (how far it’s spread). Before starting treatment, let us know if you’d like to discuss ways to preserve your fertility.
Whenever possible, your gynecologic oncologist will remove your tumor using minimally invasive techniques that make recovery easier. Doctors at AnMed often use robotic surgery to perform a hysterectomy through tiny incisions. This procedure removes the uterus and sometimes other reproductive organs, depending on the type of cancer.
