Chemotherapy is a common treatment for advanced GYN cancers such as ovarian and endometrial, and may also be used in the treatment of cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers. GOA has our own infusion center and can offer patients outpatient chemotherapy treatment in the comfort of our office. This allows you to have familiar, certified nurses monitoring and taking care of you, as well as a GOA physician down the hall at all times.
Immunotherapy is a new and exciting realm of treatment for GYN cancer. While the benefits of immunotherapy have been known for other cancers, its application to GYN cancers is still currently being explored. So far, recent studies have shown that immunotherapy can be especially beneficial in the treatment of uterine and cervical cancers. Immunotherapy can work in a variety of ways including blocking the cancer, stimulating the immune system, and turning one’s own cancer into a vaccine to fight their cancer.
