To Fight Gynecologic Cancer
- Gynecologic Cancer Screening and Prevention
You know your body better than anyone else. That's why you're the first, and best, defense against gynecological cancer. But at AdventHealth, we want to take some of that weight off your shoulders. That's why we're here, performing regular screenings and tests to check for abnormal cells and find cancer early. If something feels wrong, we're here to help. The earlier we catch gynecologic cancers like cervical, ovarian and uterine cancer, the sooner we can put you on a path to healing with non-invasive procedures such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Start by making an appointment with one of our gynecologists who may perform a number of diagnostic tests, including:
- Annual Well-Woman Exam
- HPV Test
- Pap Smear
- Pelvic Exam
- Tissue Biopsies, in Which a Physician Takes Tiny Samples
- 3D-Imaging, such as CT Scans, Ultrasounds, and MRIs
- A Safe Space for Questions and Concerns
You need support and we're here to provide it. At AdventHealth, we want to become part of your family, understanding you, comforting you, and guiding you. Let us put you at ease, answering every question, explaining any unfamiliar medical terms and treatments, and whenever possible, matching you with personal nurse navigators to help you through your gynecologic-cancer journey. Bring us your questions and concerns, and we’ll make sure you get the chance to talk them through — and get answers — with comfort and confidence. We can guide you to gynecological experts near you specializing in:
- Cervical Cancer, Including Cervical Dysplasia
- Fallopian Tube Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer, Including Epithelial Ovarian Carcinomas, Germ-Cell Tumors, and Stromal Tumors
- Uterine Cancer / Endometrial Cancer, Including Uterine Sarcoma
- Vaginal Cancer
- Vulvar Cancer
- Leading Treatments for Gynecologic Cancer
Your body is remarkable, capable of creating life and protecting it. But sometimes it needs a little help. Within our network, we offer a range of dedicated teams and medical centers offering advanced treatments for gynecological cancer, helping you achieve healing results higher than the national averages.
When you face gynecologic cancer like uterine cancer, a hysterectomy or uterus removal could be a common step on your path to wellness. We know this can be a challenging decision, but you have every reason to hope. Thanks to our commitment to the best technologies, we can now perform this surgery as a minimally invasive, robot-assisted procedure, giving you the chance for a speedier recovery, less discomfort, and fewer side effects. To round out treatments for your gynecologic cancer, we also have non-surgical methods like radiation and chemotherapy that can help treat you in combination with surgery or on their own. No matter what, we aim to provide the best personalized treatment plans for you.
Whatever the gynecological cancer diagnosis, wherever you are, you are not just a passenger on this journey. You’re holding the wheel. With the added help of counseling and support groups we provide, you and your loved ones can face these challenges with confidence and strength.
