Gynecologic Cancer

If you or a loved one are facing gynecologic cancer, you have access to the most advanced services for cancer care, including national clinical trials at UMass Memorial Medical Center.

You can be assured that you will be cared for by a team of experts. Our providers – called gynecologic oncologists – are the region’s only nationally known team of doctors with advanced training in the management of women with gynecologic cancers. Studies show that women with cancers of the reproductive tract have better outcomes and improved survival when treated by a gynecologic oncologist.

A Multidisciplinary Team

The diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic cancers requires the skills of many specialists. We bring together these specialists in a single setting (called multidisciplinary care).

Here they discuss care for each patient and develop a thorough treatment program as a team. This provides you the best treatment plan possible.

Research and Clinical Trials

Working with the NCI and UMass Medical School, the Cancer Center serves as a forum for education and research. Extensive cancer research and clinical trials are available and you benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment options that result from this research.
