Gynecologic cancer is any cancer that starts in a woman's reproductive organs. There are five main types of gynecologic cancer: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar. As with most cancers, prevention and early detection are key for most effective treatment. Treatment options vary by cancer, but may include minimally-invasive surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or other procedures.
Gynecologic cancers affect women of all ages. If you are diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, you may benefit from seeing a gynecologic oncologist who is trained in treatment of these cancers, such as Dr. Wafic ElMasri, gynecologic cancer specialist at Community Health Network.
