Gynecologic Cancer

Every six minutes, an American woman is diagnosed with gynecologic cancer, including cervical, endometrial, ovarian, peritoneal, tubal, vaginal and vulvar cancers.

Endometrial cancer of the uterus, sometimes referred to as uterine cancer, is the most common cancer of the reproductive system, while ovarian is the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in women. This condition most frequently affects older women, with the incidence increasing significantly at the time of menopause.

At the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, our team — including gynecologic cancer surgeons, radiation specialists and specially trained nurses — offers innovative, compassionate care in a supportive environment. Our services cover screening exams, diagnostic imaging, treatments such as surgery and radiation, advice on the latest therapies available, patient education and other specialized services. Genetic counseling for high-risk families also is provided.
