Gynec-oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancers affecting the female reproductive system. It encompasses various types of gynecological cancers, including ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial (uterine) cancer, vulvar cancer, and vaginal cancer. These malignancies require a multidisciplinary approach, combining the expertise of gynecologists, oncologists, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care. Symptoms of gynecological cancers may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain or discomfort, changes in bowel or bladder habits, bloating, and unexplained weight loss.

  • Ovarian Cancer: Ovarian cancer is a significant concern in gynec-oncology, as it often presents at an advanced stage. Early detection is challenging, and the disease is associated with vague symptoms. Diagnostic methods include pelvic examinations, imaging tests (ultrasound, CT scan), and blood tests (CA-125). Treatment options for ovarian cancer may involve surgery (debulking or removal of affected organs), chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormone therapy.
  • Cervical Cancer: Cervical cancer develops in the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. It is strongly linked to persistent infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Regular Pap smears and HPV testing play a vital role in early detection and prevention. Treatment for cervical cancer may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.
  • Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer: Endometrial cancer originates in the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It is the most common type of gynecological cancer. Diagnosis involves a combination of imaging tests (ultrasound, MRI), biopsies, and dilation and curettage (D&C). Treatment options for endometrial cancer include surgery (hysterectomy), radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy.
  • Vulvar Cancer: Vulvar cancer refers to the abnormal growth of malignant cells on the external genital organs of women. It often presents as a lump, ulcer, or lesion on the vulva. Diagnosis includes physical examination, biopsy, and imaging tests. Treatment for vulvar cancer may involve surgery (partial or radical vulvectomy), radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy.
  • Vaginal Cancer: Vaginal cancer is a rare cancer that develops in the tissues of the vagina. It may be primary (originating in the vagina) or secondary (resulting from the spread of cancer from other organs). Diagnosis involves physical examination, biopsies, and imaging tests. Treatment options for vaginal cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy.
