CANCERS

“Better quality of life and better survival rates”

Gynecological malignancies are on the rise and are increasingly seen in the younger age groups. We at “The Gynae Clinic” understand that a diagnosis of a malignancy or a pre malignant disease brings with it an extreme state of fear and anxiety for the patient and the entire family. We also understand the importance of an early, precise and correct diagnosis in these cases so that the correct treatment can be instituted at the earliest.

A detailed history including the past and family history, detailed examination, investigations can help in arriving the diagnosis at the earliest.

Common malignancies seen in the gynecologic practice:

  • Cervical cancers
  • Endometrial cancers
  • Ovarian cancers
  • Vulval cancers
  • Vaginal cancers
GYNAECOLOGICAL CANCERS

Causes

  • Cervical cancers: Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, frequent genital infections, multiple sexual partners, smoking, HPV infection in the genital area.
  • Endometrial cancer: Endometrial hyperplasia, Strong family history of breast ¬†and uterine cancers, obesity, diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, increasing age, excessive exposure to estrogens, postmenopausal age.
  • Vulval and vaginal cancers: Genital infection, HPV infection in the genital tract, smoking.

Patients diagnosed with a genital malignancy are then offered a detailed discussion and treatment plan along with their family members in a confidential, caring and a sensitive manner. The patients requiring surgical treatments or chemotherapy or radiotherapy are then further treated at the hospital.
