Stay informed, but limit internet time

There is a lot of information available about uterine cancer on the internet. Stay informed without becoming overwhelmed. Take the information you find with you to doctor visits to discuss. However, if you get depressed or overwhelmed moderate your exposure and time on the internet. And let your medical provider know as well.
