What happens next?

You have been seen in the Gynaecology Service for tests. These tests may have included:

  • Blood tests
  • Scan
  • An examination of inside of the vagina, neck of womb (cervix) or womb.
  • Sample taken from inside the womb

The doctor will review the result of your test(s) once they have been processed.  If your results are reassuring (no suspicion of cancer) the doctor will write to you and your GP with the results.  You may not need to be seen again in the clinic at that stage. If your symptoms continue, we do advise you to see your GP again, who can refer you back to our service.

If your results show any suspicion of cancer or confirm a cancer diagnosis, you will be contacted via letter and will receive an appointment to attend a Gynaecology Cancer Clinic.  You will be seen by one of the Gynaecology Cancer Consultants and/or the Nurse Specialist.
