Ovarian cancer: Ovarian cancer grows when the cells in the ovary grow and multiply, eventually damaging the healthy ovarian tissue and invading the surrounding tissues. Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer. It is one of the deadly cancers in women as death rate is high with worst prognosis. Majority of the ovarian cancers present at advanced stage, and unfortunately, most of them are known to relapse after primary treatment which includes cytoreduction and chemotherapy.

Endometrial cancer (Uterine cancer): endometrial cancer (uterine cancer) is the abnormal growing of the uterine tissue. The buildup of cancer cells may form a mass (malignant tumor). Non-cancer cells that form a mass are termed benign tumors, like uterine fibroids and uterine polyps. Minimal access surgery including laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomies and lymphadenectomies are increasingly being used in surgical staging of endometrial cancers. At Pandit hospital we provide 3D Laparoscopic surgery technology for the best results.

Vaginal & Vulvar Cancer: These are rare gynecological cancers and often presented in older women at late stages.

  • Know your body: If you experience any anomaly for two weeks or longer, see a doctor.
  • Take routine exams: Your doctor can identify precancerous changes in your cervix with the use of these exams. All females between the ages of 21 and 65 should have routine testing as directed by their doctors.
  • Family history: Doctors may advise genetic testing and counselling if any family members have a history of ovarian cancer or any other gynecological malignancy.
  • Healthy lifestyle choices: Leading an active, healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight will help lower your risk of developing some malignancies, such as ovarian and uterine cancer. A balanced diet, regular exercise, quitting smoking, and safe sex practice can all be beneficial.
