All of the independent specialists at Greenslopes Obstetrics & Gynaecology are trained and skilled in screening for gynaecological cancers. If your doctor suspects you have, or diagnoses you with, a gynaecological cancer, we have a special arrangement with a female gynaecological oncologist who will see you urgently.
The most common gynaecological cancer is endometrial cancer (cancer of the womb). Other gynaecological cancers include ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, vulval cancer and vaginal cancer.
The symptoms of these malignant conditions may often be very similar to symptoms associated with benign gynaecological conditions. A consultation with your GOG gynaecologist is useful to determine whether a benign or malignant gynaecological condition is present. If a gynaecological cancer is suspected, you will be seen urgently by a gynaecological oncologist, who will then offer you the most appropriate treatment options.
Treatment for gynaecological cancers often involves surgery, but associated treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy may also be required. Many gynaecological cancers are often curable, especially if diagnosed at an early stage.
