What should you bring to your first appointment with the gynecologic oncologist?

When you go to your first appointment with your gynecologic oncologist, you may want to bring a friend or relative for moral support, to help you remember all your questions, and to take notes.

You should also bring:

  • Copies of any pertinent medical records that you have already had as part of your workup
    • Pathology reports of recent biopsies or Pap smears
    • Radiology reports including an ultrasound report, CT scan or MRI report
    • Notes and records from other doctors and health care providers you have seen
  • A current list of all medications and supplements you are taking.
  • An updated list of your past medical and surgical history, including your gynecologic and obstetric history
  • Your family medical history, including a list of family members who have had cancer
  • A list of all doctors you are currently seeing for ongoing care
  • Your health insurance information
  • A list of any questions that you wish to ask the oncologist
