Since it is frequently diagnosed in its advanced stages, cervical cancer is one of the most serious of all gynecologic malignancies and cancers. Common symptoms include pressure or fullness in the pelvis, abdominal bloating, changes in bowel or bladder habits, which are progressive and persistent digestive problems, such as upper abdominal discomfort, distention and gas pains. Since these symptoms are vague and non-specific, it is difficult to detect cervical cancer in its early stages. The proper diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer is best accomplished by consultations with specialists in gynecological oncology.

Ochsner's Approach to Cervical Cancer Treatment and Care

Ochsner’s specialists work as a team to provide the patient with the latest techniques in treatment. Our primary treatment for cervical cancer is surgical debulking of tumors followed by aggressive chemotherapy. Oncologists also provide patients with a full range of treatments for cervical cancer, as well as the management of pelvic masses where there is a suspicion of cervical cancer. Genetic testing is likewise provided for patients with a strong family history of cervical cancer. Ochsner’s Division of Gynecologic Oncology participates in research protocols for cervical cancer through the national Gynecologic Oncology Group. This offers patients access to the latest and most innovative methods of treatment for cervical cancer.
