Special Message From the Doctor:
I have been practicing as a Gynecological Oncologist for several years, following my training in the United Kingdom as a gynecologist and an oncologist. As a gynecological cancer specialist I have always felt, that the most important bits of information that a patient or their relatives may want to know about their disease or treatment facilities available locally are not comprehensively covered anywhere. Hence , GyneCancerKolkata.Com provides an overview or a second opinion of sorts to ensure that patients are indeed being offered a quality of care that is standard both nationally and internationally. This site also helps to identify the gynecological oncology services for patients in Kolkata, Bangladesh and the rest of India. Case histories have been provided under FAQ to stress the importance of consulting the right professional for optimal outcome. In case you require further information please write to us. If you would like a consultation check the location and availability at various centers in and around Kolkata and book an appointment.
About Gynecological Cancers

Amongst these are cervical cancers (cancer of the mouth of the womb), Ovarian cancers, uterine cancers (cancer of the uterine body or the lining of the womb also called endometrial cancer), vulval cancers (cancer of the skin that surrounds the outer part of the vagina, between a woman’s legs). Breast cancer does not fall in the purview of gynecological cancers.
Who should manage gynecological cancers?
Internationally, gynecological cancers are managed by gynecological oncologists. This is also the trend in India at present. Gynecologists who are trained extensively in cancer surgery and focus only on performing these surgeries on a daily basis should be the persons (Gynecologic Oncologist Kolkata) who should treat these cancers. Most often these surgeries are extensive and require careful prior planning. All cancers require a multidisciplinary approach and radiation oncologists (also called clinical oncologists) and medical oncologists are involved in decision making and management of patients.
Treatment decisions are often taken through Tumour Boards comprising a multi-disciplinary approach and the best available evidence.
