Comprehensive care for uterine cancer

The uterus, also called the womb, is an organ in a woman's lower abdomen, between the bladder and the rectum. Uterine cancer is when the cells lining the uterus start to multiply when they do not need to. Cancer of the uterus can spread through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.

Many of our Baylor Scott & White Health locations offer dedicated navigators to help guide you through your treatment plan, collaborate with your physician and make appointments as necessary. Our navigators can also offer referrals to other sources of support and aid with emotional needs.

Uterine cancer treatment

We recommend you visit with a gynecologic oncologist, a physician who has done extra training in the diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic cancers. Often, surgery alone can be used to treat uterine cancer. If additional treatment is necessary, we offer radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Your treatment plan will be determined by your care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of uterine cancer, and personal preferences. Uterine cancer treatment options may include:

  • Total hysterectomy
  • Hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy
  • Radical hysterectomy
  • Supracervical hysterectomy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Pain management
  • Clinical trials

Innovative cancer research

Baylor Scott & White Research Institute (BSWRI) conducts studies exploring potentially new medications and therapies for nearly a dozen different cancer types. Trials are currently underway at select Baylor Scott & White facilities in North and Central Texas.
