Nationally Ranked in Gynecologic Care
Inova Women's Hospital has a commitment to providing the highest quality gynecologic cancer care throughout a woman's lifetime. 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.
Cancer is made up of abnormal cells that grow even though your body doesn't need them. In most cancers, the abnormal cells grow to form a lump or mass called a tumor. If cancer cells are in the body long enough, they can grow into (invade) nearby areas. They can even spread to other parts of the body (metastasis).
Women treated early by a gynecologic oncologist have twice the survival rates of those not treated by a cancer specialist. That is why the cancer experts at Inova encourage patients to seek our care from the beginning.
