Fallopian Tube Cancer
Patients with fallopian tube cancer receive care from specialists who are focused exclusively on the treatment of cancers of the female reproductive system. Our multidisciplinary fallopian tube cancer team includes some of the nation’s leading physicians, surgeons, and radiologists.
The five main types of gynecologic cancer are:
- Cervical cancer begins in the cervix, which is the lower, narrow end of the uterus. (The uterus is also called the womb.)
- Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries, which are located on each side of the uterus.
- Uterine cancer begins in the uterus, the pear-shaped organ in a woman’s pelvis where the baby grows when she is pregnant.
- Vaginal cancer begins in the vagina, which is the hollow, tube-like channel between the bottom of the uterus and the outside of the body.
- Vulvar cancer begins in the vulva, the outer part of the female genital organs.
- Additional types of gynecologic cancer exist, and include fallopian tube cancer and primary peritoneal cancer.
