Gynecologic oncology

Gynecologic oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on cancers of the female reproductive system, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer. As specialists, they are generally the most appropriate type of physician to treat these kinds of cancers.

In the United States, 82,000 women are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer annually.[1] In 2013, an estimated 91,730 were diagnosed.[2]
