Cancer, which has been increasing rapidly in recent years, is the most common cause of death in the world after heart disease. Among common cancers in women, including breast cancer of the genital organs belong to the species that is located. According to data from the Turkish Statistical Institute, 12 percent of all deaths in Turkey in 2002 were caused by cancer. In 2012, this figure rose to 21 percent. It is noted that these rates will increase more in the coming years, and deaths from cancer will approach deaths from heart disease.

Types of gynecological cancers called female cancers are listed as follows:

Cancer of the uterus (the uterus)


Ovarian cancer (ovarian)

Tube cancer (tuba uterus)

Cancer of the Vulva

Progeny pathway cancer (vaginal cancer)

Factors that lay the groundwork for cancer
Many chemical products, such as industrialization, increased environmental and air pollution, eating prepared foods and smoking, disrupt the structure of inhibitory genes that prevent cancer and tumor formation in the human organism, laying the groundwork for the development of cancer cells. It is unlikely that these negative factors will be prevented and reduced. For this reason, the fact of cancer should be accepted and precautions should be taken.

Advances in health informatics face cancer
Despite the rapid increase in the number of cancer cases, early detection of cancer is possible thanks to important steps taken in the field of Health Technology. In addition, increasing medical knowledge and surgical experience makes treatment more effective. In the last 10 years, clinical and molecular studies of reproductive system cancers have clarified many unknowns, and the factors that make up cancer have been better understood. The introduction of treatments such as direct cancer cell treatment, vaccines and immune therapy also contributes to survival rates.

Child desire and women’s cancers
An increase in the incidence of cancer, an increase in the age of marriage, and women’s postponement of conception to old age due to work life combine the desire for a child with cancer in an average of 10 percent of women. If cancer is caught at an early stage in women who do not have children, reproductive ability can be maintained only by removing the cancer area with hormonal or surgical treatment, depending on the type of disease. After having children, if treatment is required, surgical treatment can be completed.

Cervical cancer and reproductive protective surgery; has been performed in the world for more than 20 years, and the results from the point of view of pregnancy obtained after treatment are laughable. In early stage uterine cancer, only the cancerous area is removed and the uterus and vagina are combined.

20 percent of cases of uterine cancer are under the age of 45 and 5 percent are under the age of 40. For this reason, the number of patients with uterine cancer and child desire is quite high. In this case, if the disease is at an early stage, that is, if it has not spread outside the inner wall of the uterus, and the cell type is not very bad, it can be treated with medication and pregnant after the disease is regressed. In this case, up to 70 percent success can be achieved with progesterone therapy.

Maintaining reproduction in ovarian cancer has also been practiced with increasing frequency in recent years. Especially in early germ cell ovarian cancer and borderline ovarian cancer, it is possible to conceive only by removing cancerous tissue or cancerous ovaries and protecting the uterus and counter-ovaries.

These treatments require significant knowledge and technological infrastructure. IstHealth Health Group serves as one of the important centers of our country and Europe in terms of evaluating and applying the appropriate method together with gynecological oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology and IVF units.

Success rates rise in treatment with advanced surgical techniques
Rapidly developing surgical techniques and laparoscopic surgeries in the world and Turkey are more common, reducing the risks of early recovery and open surgery. All this also seriously contributes to early diagnosis and effective treatment of cancer.

Laparoscopic and robotic surgery are increasingly effective treatment methods for uterine cancer, cervical cancer, and early stage ovarian cancer. Thanks to these methods, the patient’s time to stay in hospital, recover, return to work and social life is reduced, and the patient does not have any significant cosmetic skin damage.

In IstHealth Health Group, diagnosis and treatment of gynecological cancers can be done in Western standards, taking into account the fact that early diagnosis and effective treatment of cancer are very important. Necessary for this is the Department of gynecological oncology with sufficient knowledge and experience in both open surgery and laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

In addition, cancer treatment is planned with a multidisciplinary approach created by our hereditary cancer genetic counseling and diagnosis Center, Medical Oncology and radiation oncology units equipped with high technology, and pathology unit experienced in gynecological cancers.
