Living with cervical cancer
Once your treatment is over, your doctor will want to see you for regular check-ups. This is known as follow-up. At first, these check-ups will be quite often but gradually become less frequent. The follow-up may continue for at least 5 years. At the check-up, you may have tests like a physical exam, X-rays, scans or blood tests.
There are many cancer support centres and voluntary groups around the country. If you feel they could help you and your family, call our Cancer Nursline on 1800 200 700. Our cancer nurses can give you more information on counselling or support groups in your area.
We can also help you cope with the emotional effects of a cancer diagnosis.
