Gynecologic Cancers

Women of all ages are subject to a wide variety of cancers affecting the genital tract. Some cancers are related to age, genetic factors, or modifiable behavior. Some are amenable to screening, yet others remain elusive to early diagnosis. Some high-risk conditions require special work-up and management. Special issues such as sexuality and fertility require unique knowledge and care.

Watch Karim ElSahwi, M.D., discuss risk factors and treatments for patients affected by ovarian cancer.
