Gynecologic Oncology Specialties

Gynecological cancers aren’t as common as breast or colorectal cancers, but if they aren’t detected early or treated effectively, they can be just as deadly. The distress of having cancer in your reproductive system can be especially hard to process. That’s why our gynecologic oncology specialists excel in providing empathetic professionalism to treat:

Depending on the type and extent of your cancer, treatment options may include minimally invasive surgery, open surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or biological therapy. We also offer ongoing gynecological clinical trials that give patients access to the newest and most innovative treatment options.

Screenings for Gynecologic Cancer

Early detection of gynecologic cancer saves lives. That’s why the UK Markey Cancer Center Ovarian Screening Program was started in 1987. The program offers free ovarian cancer screenings by transvaginal ultrasound to postmenopausal women who are over the age of 50 or women over the age of 25 with a documented family history of ovarian cancer.

We also offer contemporary screening for cervical and vaginal cancers using ThinPrep cytology and HPV typing. For patients with a family history of gynecological cancer, we offer clinical genetic counseling that can help assess individual and family risk.
