Fallopian tube cancer is an extremely rare disease that develops inside one or both of a woman's fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are the thin ducts that transport eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Most women with this type of cancer are between the ages of 50 and 60. Fallopian tube carcinomas are treated using the same methods as for ovarian cancer.
Women treated early by a gynecologic oncologist have twice the survival rates of those not treated by a cancer specialist. Inova Cancer Institute and Inova Women's Services work together seamlessly to provide a comprehensive treatment program for women with cancer of the cervix, ovaries, uterus, or other reproductive organs. Our multidisciplinary team of gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, and pathologists coordinate the best care for each patient from diagnosis to treatment to monitoring for recurrence.
