Meet Ana

Cervical Cancer

When Ana was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she was faced with minimal options. Her initial treatments included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. After completing these, she began experiencing severe discharge. Her gynecologic oncologist assured her these symptoms were a normal part of the healing process from the radiation. When the symptoms continued to worsen and persist after six months, Ana decided to seek further answers. Without the Grand Rounds second opinion, Ana’s doctors would likely not have caught the remaining cancer when they did.


“I am very thankful for my team at Grand Rounds for providing my second opinion. The opinion pushed my doctors to move faster with certainty for my hysterectomy. I certainly think it was the right decision, and having the outside opinion reassured me and my doctors”
