I’ve Just Been Diagnosed

Being told that you have a gynaecological cancer can come as a shock and leave you with questions and anxieties about what the future may hold.

Your consultant and /or gynaecology specialist nurse will explain the type of gynaecological cancer you have and what will happen next in terms of further tests and treatment options – and the possible side effects. It can often be difficult to take in all in the information that you’ve been given even though you may have it in leaflet/booklet form, that is why at The Eve Appeal we are here to provide extra information to support the care and information you get from your cancer team.

We understand that for many people, a cancer diagnosis may be life changing, and being able to talk to someone about how you feel and all of your worries can make all the difference. You can contact our nurse-led information service – Ask Eve – which is led by our specialist gynae nurse, Tracie Miles. She will be able to answer any of the questions that you may have around your recent diagnosis and living with and beyond cancer.

You are not alone, we are here to help provide you with information to make your diagnosis and treatment easier to understand and work through.

To get in touch with our nurse-led specialist gynaecological cancer information service please contact us on 0808 802 0019 – which is free to call from landlines and mobile phones – or get in touch via email nurse@eveappeal.org.uk.
