Patient/advocate Diane Redington and Dr. Marcela del Carmen discuss diagnosis and treatment of gynecological carcinosarcoma (MMMT). This is part seven of a nine-part series.
Dr. Marcela del Carmen discusses how gynecological carcinosarcoma is different than ovarian or uterine cancers. It is very important to get an accurate diagnosis from an expert to confirm exactly what your cancer type is. Dr. Carmen recommends seeing a team of experts—an gynecologic oncologist, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist—and outlines the course of treatment.
