Follow-up after treatment for womb cancer (endometrial cancer)
After your treatment, you’ll have regular check-ups, which will include having an internal examination.
These will be every few months at first, but eventually you may only be seen once a year.
Sometimes, instead of routine appointments, some women are asked to contact their cancer specialist or nurse if they have new symptoms or are worried about anything. If you have any problems or new symptoms in between appointments, it’s important to contact your cancer doctor or specialist nurse as soon as possible. Important symptoms to be aware of are bleeding from the vagina or back passage, and pain in the pelvic area.
If womb cancer comes back in the same area, it can often be treated successfully.
Many women feel worried for a while before their appointments. This is natural, and it can help to get support from family, friends or a support organisation.
