Avera Medical Group Gynecologic Oncology Sioux Falls
Every six minutes, another American woman learns she is facing a gynecologic cancer diagnosis. These cancers originate in the female reproductive organs and include:
- Endometrial (uterine)
- Ovarian, Fallopian Tube and Peritoneal Lining
- Cervix, Vulva and Vagina
- Pregnancy-related Cancer (molar pregnancies)
Your risk of getting cancer increases with age, with significant rise in risk after menopause. Inherited gene mutations, personal exposures and behavior or a family history of cancer may also increase your risk.
According to the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation, research shows that women diagnosed with a cancer of the reproductive organs, especially uterine (endometrial), ovarian and of the uterine cervix, experience improved outcomes when treated first by a gynecologic oncologist.
In the event of a cancer diagnosis, it’s important to be able to turn to someone you can trust—a partner in healing who understands that care should go beyond treatment of the disease. Avera Gynecologic Oncology provides the technology, care and guidance you need to manage your illness, all with special attention to your emotional and spiritual needs.
