Too often gynecologic cancers (cancers in the female reproductive system) go undetected. Being proactive in your health and learning about gynecologic cancers may reduce your risk and identify ways to prevent cancer and to diagnose cancers in an early stage when more treatment options and higher survival rates are possible.
Dr. Joyce Varughese, a board certified, fellowship trained gynecologic oncologist at Capital Health Surgical Group, will offer information on what gynecologic cancers are, their symptoms, and how to lower your risk. She will focus on prevention strategies of the three most common gynecologic cancers: uterine, ovarian, and cervical. Learn about different screening options and how your family history may affect your cancer risk.
