Who is a Gynecologic Oncologist?
A Gynecologic Oncologist is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancers found in the female reproductive system as well as in other complex gynecologic diseases such as endometriosis, ovarian cyst, etc.
After graduating from a medical school, a physician requires four years of significant education in Obstetrics & Gynecology as a resident and four years of specialized training in Gynecologic oncology as a fellow to become a Gynecologic Oncologist. They must also earn board certification and a license to practice.
These specialists espouse an integrated approach to the diagnosis and surgical management of cancers found in women including cervical cancer, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cancer, pelvic masses, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer to name a few.
What do Gynecologic Oncologists do?
Gynecologic oncologists perform physical evaluations for identifying normal cells, benign conditions and malignancies; collect detailed medical histories, and accordingly, develop a plan for treatment and therapy. Therapy options include not only the treatment of specific cancers but also the management of the after-effects of cancer, like shock, renal failure in cases of cervical cancer and many more.
In addition to this, a Gynecologic Oncologist also educates patients and their families on various forms of cancer, possible progression and treatment options. Diagnostic techniques that can be employed include staining, tissue sampling procedures and medical imaging.
Gynecologic Oncologists could also help patients and their attendees understand diagnostic techniques such as staining, tissue sampling procedures, and medical imaging, etc. Also, as per the specific need of any patient, they can incorporate nutritional aspects and blood transfusions into a treatment plan.
When should I see a Gynecologic Oncologist?
Your primary care provider may refer you to a Gynecologic Oncologist if you have symptoms such as:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding, which manifests as watery and blood-streaked flow.
- Vaginal bleeding, during or after menopause.
- Unusual vaginal bleeding, spotting, or discharge.
- Menorrhagia, which is abnormally heavy, or prolonged bleeding, and/or abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB).

What tests and procedure does a Gynecologic Oncologist perform or recommend?
The first test a Gynecologic Oncologist would recommend is a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis of cancer and to establish the stage of your cancer. Once the diagnosis of cancer gets confirmed, s/he will recommend/perform further examinations, depending on the affected area.
In cases of cervical cancer, the stage of cancer is determined only after a thorough pelvic and rectal exam in addition to some radiologic studies and possibly other diagnostic tests. Your gynecologic oncologist will recommend treatment based on the stage of cancer, your overall health status, and, if appropriate, your desire about preserving fertility.
Additional tests and common procedures that are performed during the workup of cancer found in the female reproductive system are as follows:
- Rectovaginal exam
- CT or CAT scan, also called computed tomography, computerized tomography, or computerized axial tomography.
- MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan, sometimes called an NMRI (nuclear magnetic resonance imaging scan)..
- PET (positron emission tomography scan).
- Chest X-ray, to determine if cancer has spread into your chest or lungs.
- Blood tests evaluating your blood count, kidney function, and related issues.
- Cystoscopy.This test is recommended if there is any concern that cancer involves the bladder or has caused a blockage of urine as a result. Biopsies can be taken using the cystoscope.
Besides the above-mentioned tests, a Gynecologic Oncologist may perform a more thorough examination with the assistance of intravenous sedation by an anesthesiologist.
