Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women globally and is most frequently diagnosed in women between the ages of 35 and 44. Veterans with cervical cancer can find support through the VA National TeleOncology’s Breast and Gynecologic Oncology System of Excellence program.

The System of Excellence program is currently available at 82 VA facilities and provides support and resources to Veterans with breast or gynecologic cancer, which includes cervical cancer, whether they choose to receive care through VA or a community provider. Veterans in the program have a nurse navigator who connects them with relevant resources.

Through the National TeleOncology program, VA staff use video telehealth to connect Veterans with VA oncologists and other specialists anywhere in the country. Veterans may also participate in virtual support groups led by a peer support specialist.
