Evaluating Cervical and Other Gynecologic Cancers

Women should know that there are five major gynecologic cancers. They include cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 83,000 women learn that they have a gynecologic cancer each year, and nearly 29,000 die from a gynecologic cancer. Cervical cancer, for example, is highly preventable thanks to regular screening tests and a vaccine to prevent HPV infections. HPV, or human papilloma virus, is the main cause of cervical cancer and it is typically transmitted by sexual activity. When cervical cancer is found early, it is highly treatable and associated with long survival and good quality of life. The same holds true for the other gynecologic cancers. Early detection and treatment are the keys to survival.

Advanced testing and treatment improve the prognosis

Dr. Rosenstein is expert at evaluating cervical and other gynecologic cancers. An abnormal reading on an annual Pap test or Pap smear, for example, may indicate cervical cancer. But it is far more likely to indicate a vaginal infection or inflammation. Dr. Rosenstein also uses:

  • Colposcopy to evaluate precancerous changes on the cervix
  • LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) to find cervical/vaginal dysplasia and genital warts
  • HPV testing and vaccinations for prevention
  • Laser surgery for rapid excision or vaporization of pelvic abnormalities, endometriosis or adhesions
  • D&C (dilation and curettage) to diagnose and treat abnormal bleeding or find abnormal cells
