What is gynae-oncology?
Gynae-oncology refers to cancers that occur in the organs of the female reproductive system. This includes the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina and vulva.
The gynae-oncology team at the NSCC manages all types and stages of gynecological cancer from diagnosis, treatment and supportive care, including assessment of symptoms and side effects.
Patient cases are discussed at a multi-disciplinary team meeting (MDT) to ensure the best possible treatment recommendation is made. The gynae-oncology team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nurses, pathologists, radiologists and geneticists.
Supportive care services include nutrition, social work and psychology.
