Matthew Carlson, MD, an oncologist University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, discusses his take home message for managing symptoms of chemotherapy in patients with gynecologic cancers.

It is important to have a high level of suspicion during surveillance of these patients. Carlson says to ask patients a lot of questions in regards to potential symptoms. For example, patients won’t necessarily bring up depression themselves.

Carlson says to focus on the symptoms that can be controlled, such as sleep. Therapy or medications may help side effects like depression. Other medical conditions might be able to be treated as well.
