Oncological surgery

Many gynecologists are experts, as they claim, in neoplasm. It is extremely dangerous, a doctor, inadequately trained or insufficiently experienced, to deal with oncology. The surgery is complicated, requiring full information of the patient and his environment, as well as detailed preoperative and surgical treatment. The post-operative follow-up and the close cooperation between the doctor and the patient is very important. Patients should choose their doctor carefully.

Most of the time, the selection of an alleged major oncology hospital for better resultsin our country, becomes a tragedy, because the practitioners sometimes do not occupy these positions on merit.

In trying to escape the financial burden sometimes leads us to wrong choices for our health. We have to think always what is best for us and then if we can afford it. There are always correct solutions always, both in public and private sectors.

Ovarian Tumors

The exact causes of ovarian cancer are unknown so far. The correct way to face it is the valid diagnosis and surgical treatment, assisted by chemotherapy or radiation. Unfortunately, a valid diagnosis is difficult because most women do not get examined often. Consequently, they resort to the doctor when the symptoms are too many, fact that indicates the advanced stage of the disease.

Initially, these symptoms may be mild pain in the lower abdomen, abdominal bloating, constipation, frequent urination, pain during contact, etc. If we neglect them and let them get worse, being a prelude to advanced illness.

The message is: “I get examined frequently in order to avoid the illness”.

Uterine tumors

The tumors of the uterine can be benign and malignant.

The malignant tumors can be faced largely, as long as there is early diagnosis. They usually appear after the 50th age. This does not mean that young girls do not show such diseases. Some symptoms, such as menstrual disorders at the age of 40 or above after the menopause, must  be checked, in order to exclude the possibility of cancer.

The message is the same: “I check in time my symptoms".

Cervical Tumors

The cancer of the cervix of the uterus is a malignant one, but it can be treated with success.

Today we know that most of the cancers of the uterus are due to the HPV infections. With the diagnostic capabilities that we have nowadays (Test Pap, colposcopy), we can prevent the tumor at an early stage and heal it. If you see any tumor in advanced stage, it can be treated with radiation and surgery, depending on the stage it is. The last years, the mortality has declined sharply.

Diffuse pelvic tumors

The existence of diffuse pelvic tumors is a difficult situation and often requires surveillance by a gynecologist and a general surgeon too. Depending on the malignancy, many times, there may be use of both radiation and chemotherapy. These situations are extremely serious and the treatments do not usually work.
