Gynaecological cancers

Gynaecological cancers are cancers arising from the genital organs such as the vulva, uterus, cervix, endometrium, fallopian tubes or ovaries. The most common cancers in these organs are endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer.

As in with other cancers, the early diagnosis of gynaecological cancers is important for a good prognosis. Gynaecological cancers are most often treated, depending on the type and epidemiology, by surgical treatments, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, targeted drug therapy, or a combination of these. A specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology with a specialization in gynaecological cancers is responsible for the treatment.

Treatment of gynaecological cancers at Docrates Cancer Center

We give radiotherapy, chemotherapy and targeted drug therapy treatments at our own premises in Ruoholahti, Helsinki. If necessary, we are also able to offer gynaecological brachytherapy (sealed radiation source inside the tissue). Surgical treatments are performed at the premises of our partners.
