Coordination of care
Your doctor will talk with you about a full range of effective, innovative treatment options. If treatment is not available locally, you will be referred to Mayo Clinic Gynecologic Oncology providers who are expert in complex laparoscopic and robotic approaches, fertility-sparing surgery, and risk reduction procedures for inherited cancer syndromes. Cancer care will be provided locally when possible. If a procedure is only available in Rochester, pre- and post-procedure work may be done at the local Mayo Clinic Health System site.
If you have a hereditary disease, such as cancer, you may want to talk with a genetic counselor to help you understand your risks and risk management options. If you have received a cancer diagnosis, you may have questions about the risk of other cancers occurring in your body and the risk of cancer developing in your family members. A genetic counseling consultation focuses on prevention of risk factors. It includes a complete family medical history evaluation, genetic testing (if applicable) and follow-up recommendations.
