Gynecologic oncologists specialize in diagnosing cancers of the vulva, vagina, uterus or fallopian tubes – collectively referred to as “gynecological cancers”. Furthermore, they can perform surgery on these organs and stage disease accordingly, ultimately helping determine the most suitable treatments for each individual patient.
Doctors employ several tests to diagnose gynecologic cancers. These include pelvic exam, blood work and imaging tests. A pelvic exam involves physical inspection of external genitalia as well as possible sexual testing; blood work takes a sample from you blood that can be examined for abnormal cells or hormone levels; imaging tests include ultrasound scans, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET).
A biopsy is a procedure in which a small piece of tissue from the tumor site is removed for examination by a pathologist under a microscope to see if it contains cancerous cells. There are various forms of biopsies, including image-guided biopsy, fine-needle aspiration biopsy, core needle biopsy, excisional biopsy and endoscopic biopsy.

Gynecologic oncology is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology dedicated to the treatment of cancers affecting female reproductive organs such as the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Every type of gynecologic cancer requires customized care plans.
Gynecologic oncologists are specialists trained to treat various gynecological conditions, from noncancerous tumors to cancerous ones, using minimally invasive surgeries like cystectomies, myomectomies and hysterectomies. Some specialize in diagnosing and treating infertility as well.
An essential step to treating gynecologic cancers is conducting a pelvic exam, which involves physical exams of reproductive organs by either a doctor or nurse. They will inspect external genitalia, insert a speculum into vagina and feel for cervical changes – and may perform a pap smear as part of this exam process.
After medical school, physicians typically complete four years of an OB/GYN residency and three additional years for oncologic training fellowship. Those interested in specializing further may choose an additional three year fellowship training option.
During their fellowship, fellows learn the specifics of each type of gynecologic tumor and collaborate with other doctors to devise treatment plans tailored specifically to their type, stage, patient’s overall health and other considerations.
