Gynecologic oncologists are doctors who specialize in cancers of the female reproductive organs. These include cancers of the cervix, ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, vagina, and vulva.
After medical school, these doctors complete four years of training as obstetrician-gynecologists, plus an additional two to four years of intensive medical training in the study and treatment of gynecologic cancers. Training includes the biology and pathology of these cancers as well as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and clinical trials.
Studies show that women with cancers of the reproductive organs have better prognoses when treated by gynecologic oncologists.
