Gynecology Oncology

Gynecology Oncology

Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of female reproductive system. At MSCC our emphasis is to help young cancer patients of the reproductive age groups – both male & female patients – prior to chemotherapy or radiotherapy through gamete & embryo cryopreservation. Gynaecological problems can be controlled through vaccination, screening and educational programmes. We also provide treatment & rehabilitation with pain relief & palliative care.

The programme of Gynaecological Oncology at Mazumdar Shaw Cancer centre provides treatment to all gynaecological cancers. We strive to provide excellent care in Ovarian, Cervical, Endometrial, Vulval and Vaginal cancers. Our approach to all cancers is ‘holistic’ and integrated with a team of counsellors, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, yoga teachers, palliative medicine and oncologists.

We provide minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery for complex gynaecological oncological procedures and benign gynaecological conditions. Currently, over 95% of all procedures are performed laparoscopically ensuring minimal blood loss and speedy recovery to the patients. We are the only centre in the country to have a Gynaecology Oncology specialist nurse to provide one to one support before, during and after the admission. Our specialist nurse is trained to address issues related to different treatments, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Our counsellor attached to the women’s oncology wing is the best available for sexuality and psychological support.

Our centre also provides treatment for recurrent gynaecological cancers including exenteration surgery, secondary cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC and side wall recurrence excision.

Cervical Cancer

It is the commonest cause of cancer related deaths in women. Majority of the women present in advanced stages where the survival rates are poor. Education, screening and vaccination can bring about reduction in mortality due to the disease. Cervical cancer detected early and treated according

to the guidelines have higher chance of cure. Cervical cancer is the No. 1 cancer in women as for globocan 2012 statistics.

Ovarian Cancer

Another important gynecological malignancy whose incidence has been increasing especially in the urban areas in recent times. Again the presentation in most cases is advanced stages. The treatment options are an aggressive cytoreductive surgery or chemotherapy or a combination of


Endometrial / Uterine cancer

Incidence is more in urban women as there is a rise in the incidence of contributory factors like hypertension, obesityand hyperestrogenism. Surgery in combination with radiotherapy or chemotherapy is the treatment of choice. Detected in early stages, patients have a good chance of survival.
