Gynecologic cancers are cancers that begin in the reproductive organs of women. These cancers include cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, endometrial (uterine) cancers, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer.
Each of these cancers is unique, with varying causes and treatment options. What they do have in common, however, is that they are all treated by a gynecologic oncologist who specializes in these types of cancer in women. The specialists of the Gynecologic Cancer Institute of Chicago are now a division of Affiliated Oncologists, making it possible to provide the most advanced treatments for female reproductive cancers, including highly advanced, robot-assisted surgery.
