Tests after being diagnosed with womb cancer

You may have more tests after your diagnosis to find out:

  • How large is the cancer?
  • Where exactly is the cancer?
  • Has the cancer spread to any other parts of your body?

This is called staging. Staging tests for womb cancer include:

  • PET - CT scan: A scan that gives a detailed picture of the tissues inside your body. You will have a radioactive injection that will show up any cancer spread to other parts of your body on a CT scan picture. 
  • MRI scan: This is a scan that uses magnetic energy to build up a picture of the tissues inside your body. During the scan you will lie inside a tunnel-like machine. 

Staging is important as it helps your medical team decide on the best treatment for your cancer. Read more about staging tests
