Gynecologic Cancer Program
Focus on Gynecologic Cancer
NCCC physicians and researchers brought information and hope to the rural village women. The data they brought back to their labs for complex analysis will provide Honduran physicians information they need to create a comprehensive national plan to fight cervical cancer in Honduras.
The Gynecologic Cancer Program provides complete and compassionate care for women with gynecologic cancers including ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar, peritoneal, and fallopian tube cancers, as well as gestational trophoblastic disease. We also help women with pre-invasive disease as well as those concerned about genetic risk for developing gynecologic cancers.
Our gynecologic cancer specialists combine training and expertise in gynecology, surgery and oncology. They are part a team of experts from a variety of medical disciplines who work together to ensure that every patient receives an accurate diagnosis, a tailored treatment plan, and comprehensive care that meets their medical, social, and psychological needs.
As part of a National Cancer Institute comprehensive research and treatment center, and members of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), we’re working to better understand gynecologic cancers and to develop more effective ways to treat them. Our program combines scientific discoveries with the latest technology and therapies to provide the most advanced and comprehensive gynecologic cancer care available in New Hampshire and northern New England.
