You've found your way here because you or a loved one either has uterine cancer or there are initial indications that cancer might explain the symptoms now being experienced.

This Board is a good place to learn more about what you can expect as there are initial appointments with doctors, tests, test results, and if necessary, treatment recommendations, treatments delivered and post treatment care.

If you'd like, you can just read some of the existing posts to get a feel for the site. You can read posts without joining as a member. You can also search for terms that you may have read or heard about in the "Search by Title" or "Search by Keyword" search boxes on this page.

If you decide to join the Board, you're welcome to create a new post introducing yourself and asking any initial questions you might have. You do this by clicking on the "Add a new forum topic" that is right under the board's title of "Uterine Cancer."

As a member, you can also add a comment to an existing discussion topic. But please remember that if that topic is one of the older discussions with lots of comments added over several years, it can be hard for other members to spot your comment and reply as quickly as you might hope. You'll more likely to get a better range of responses to a new topic you've created, or a comment you make to a topic with recent activity.

The two links at the top of this page "About CSN" and "CSN Help" give more information about the resources available through CSN membership.

The members here come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences with cancer. None of us, even those with healthcare backgrounds, consider ourselves to be medical experts regarding this cancer.

But what we do have is a wide range of experiences in dealing with the different aspects of this disease on a personal level that is very hard to find elsewhere. And we're happy to share what we've learned (and continue to learn) along the way with those just beginning this process.

So read what interests you and comment if you'd like. We're glad you found this site and hope that it complements the other information you may be learning about right now.

    Thank you, CMB and Denise!

    It is a wonderful resource for our new members. It's so hard in the early days and first visits to the forum. Welcome to all newcomers, and if you've found your way here, you're very resourceful!

    Thank you!

    I am 14 months out from my diagnosis, surgery and radiation treatments.  Just had my 1 year follow-up checkup and it was clear!  Although I do not post often, I come here regularly to read and learn.  Your first hand knowledge has helped me to navigate through the shock of my diagnosis and the treatment plan.  Thank you all so much for sharing your experiences and encouragement.

    You and others are why we keep posting, to help others, to help them navigate what ever comes their way, to educate all who come no matter if they post or not. Our posts get hundreds of views so we know many are reading, not posting. Thank you!
