Recently diagnosed with cervical cancer

You will be reading this because you or someone you care about has newly been diagnosed with cervical cancer. Around 3,000 women each year in the UK receive this diagnosis. Finding out you have cancer can be an emotional and scary time.

You'll probably have been given lots of information from the hospital, but it can be difficult to digest and remember what you've been told when possibly the only word you'll have heard is 'cancer'.

‘My advice for anyone going through cervical cancer treatments is to talk to someone, don’t do it alone.’ – Emma, 26
