High-End Treatment for Gynecologic Cancer in Augusta, GA
Gynecologic cancer is defined as the spread of abnormal cells from various areas of the female reproductive system, including the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes. There are certain ways to reduce your risk of developing this type of cancer, as well as ways to help detect it in early stages. The Georgia Cancer Center's Multi-disciplinary Gynecological Cancer Team cares for patients who have been diagnosed with a variety of cancers and cancer-related diseases.
More than 70,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with a gynecological cancer each year. An annual Pap smear screens for cervical cancer; however, no good screening exists for the other types of gynecological cancer. That is why it is important for women to talk to their doctor if they experience unusual symptoms or changes in their body.
Renowned GYN oncologists offer traditional surgeries and minimally invasive Da Vinci robotic hysterectomies. The center also sponsors the area’s only GYN Cancer Prevention Program for women who’ve had abnormal Pap smears.
