Each year more than 80,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with a gynecologic (GYN) cancer. Northside Hospital leads the state in the diagnosis and treatment of endometrial, ovarian and cervical cancer, diagnosing and treating more cases than any other hospital in Georgia.
These cancers start in a woman’s reproductive tract. Their symptoms – bloating, pelvic pain, bleeding, and feeling full quickly – can resemble other illnesses such as gastrointestinal issues, menopause, stress or other familiar problems. Incorrect diagnoses take away precious moments for a patient to get treatment, and time is especially important for patients with gynecologic cancers.
At Northside Hospital, a dedicated team of GYN oncologists, surgeons and specialty-trained oncology nurses provides patients with the highest level of expertise in diagnosing, evaluating and treating GYN cancers. It’s just one of the reasons are why we have been voted Atlanta’s Most Preferred for Women’s GYN Services by the National Research Corporation Healthcare Market Guide for more than a decade.
Screening & Diagnostics
Early detection is especially important to ensure the most effective treatment for GYN cancer. You can help protect yourself by knowing your body and recognizing symptoms early. Our Hereditary Cancer Program is available to patients interested in genetic counseling and testing due to strong personal or family histories of cancer
Northside leads the way in groundbreaking procedures for GYN cancer. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy remain the three traditional treatment options for women with cancer. However, new and improved treatments and technologies offer women better hope for a cure.
Support & Survivorship
From trained nurse navigators to support groups, Northside offers multiple support resources for patients who have GYN cancer.
