What Conditions Does a Gynecologic Oncologist Treat?

Gynecologic Oncologists diagnose and treat many female reproductive system-associated cancers. Some of the most common conditions that are prevalent and treated by doctors in Pakistan are as follows:

  • Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cervix (the lower part of the uterus) of the female. Gynecologic oncologists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of cervical and uterine cancers.

  • Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a medical condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. This is a very painful condition and can affect the fertility of a female. Professional gynecologic oncologists specialize in addressing and treating endometriosis.

  • Fibroids

Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. These non-cancerous growths can cause pelvic pain, pressure on the rectum, or the bladder, and heavy menstrual bleeding. Many women do not show any symptoms of fibroids. Doctors treat them with certain medications or surgical interventions. 

  • Ovarian Cancer

Women over the age of 50 years mostly develop ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is the type of cancer that forms in either one or both ovaries of a female. Due to the subtle symptoms, they are usually detected at advanced stages.

What are Common Procedures Performed by a Gynecologic Oncologist?

Some of the common procedures performed by a Gynecologic Oncologist are given below:

To collect tissue samples from the female reproductive organs such as ovaries, vagina, uterus, cervix, etc, gynecologic oncologists perform biopsies. 

These tissue samples are examined to diagnose and determine the stage and nature of the cancer or mass.

They are skilled in treating various cancers with surgical interventions. They perform minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopic surgeries, remove tumors, and undergo debulking surgeries to lessen the size of the tumor. Surgeries are undergone in the cases where they are required.

Hysterectomy is a procedure in which the uterus is removed surgically. This procedure is used to treat cancers including cervical cancer or endometrial cancer, in which the uterus removal is necessary to stop the disease progression.

Radiation therapy is a form of therapy in which radiation is targeted at specific cancerous areas to shrink or destroy cancer cells. This is performed in cases where surgical interventions alone are not sufficient.
