Gynecologic Oncology

Gynecologic oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on cancers within the female reproductive system—specifically malignant tumors that arise in the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva.  A gynecologist/obstetrician is a physician that studies the female reproductive system and can typically diagnose cancerous cells within one of the related organs by conducting a routine test such as a Pap test, pelvic exam or sonogram.
