We invite hospitals which require high levels of gynaecological oncology expertise to collaborate with us to provide vital care to people who really need it.
Our process is very simple and is designed to be convenient for both the patient and hospital. Initial assessment and planning will take place before Dr Erdem arrives at the treatment destination. Once all necessary documents have been received and reviewed, feedback will be provided to the hospital for next steps. Following this a treatment plan will be confirmed and a date for the treatment can be agreed by all parties.
> Ovarian cancer, or cancer of the ovaries, is 1 of the most common types of cancer in women.
The ovaries are a pair of small organs located low in the tummy that are connected to the womb and store a woman’s supply of eggs.
Ovarian cancer mainly affects women who have been through the menopause (usually over the age of 50), but it can sometimes affect younger women.
> Most womb cancers begin in the cells that make up the lining of the womb (the endometrium). This is why cancer of the womb is often called endometrial cancer.
In rare cases, womb cancer can start in the muscle wall of the womb. This type of cancer is called uterine sarcoma and may be treated in a different way.
Womb cancer is separate from other cancers of the female reproductive system, such as ovarian cancer and cervical cancer
> Cervical cancer develops in a woman’s cervix (the entrance to the womb from the vagina). It mainly affects sexually active women aged between 30 and 45.
If cervical cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, it’s usually possible to treat it using surgery.
In some cases, it’s possible to leave the womb in place, but it may need to be removed. The surgical procedure used to remove the womb is called a hysterectomy.
