Gynecologic cancer tests and diagnosis

At Levine Cancer Institute, you’ll have access to the latest procedures for diagnosing gynecologic cancers. If gynecologic cancer is suspected, the first diagnostic step typically involves a physical exam (including a pelvic exam) and a thorough gathering of your medical history, including symptoms and risk factors.

Depending on the type of cancer suspected, your doctor may suggest any of the following diagnostic tests:

  • Imaging studies (such as MRI, CT scan or ultrasound)
  • Pap test (in which cervical cells are studied to look for changes)
  • Biopsy
  • Blood tests

Gynecologic cancer treatment

We offer the most advanced, comprehensive care for gynecologic cancer. Our nationally recognized team of surgeons, gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and other specialists work together to develop individualized cancer treatment plans for the best outcomes possible.

The goal of treatment is to:

  • Rid the body of cancer
  • Reduce the chance of reoccurrence
  • Reduce the chance of the cancer traveling to another part of the body

Treatment for gynecologic cancer depends on your individual cancer and stage.

Gynecologic cancer treatment options include:

  • Minimally invasive, robotic and reconstructive surgery
  • Electrocoagulation (heat) therapy or laser ablation (for pre-invasive cancer of the cervix)
  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (injected into the abdomen)
  • Tumor-specific or targeted therapies
  • A combination of therapies
  • Vaccines
