Located in the heart of London, London Gynae Cancer Care specialises in the management of gynaecological cancers such as ovarian, cervical or uterine cancer. At London Gynae Cancer Care, we are committed to providing high-quality care in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of women’s cancers. We also believe that it is important to offer accurate and up-to-date information about the causes, prevention and treatment of these conditions, to enable our patients to make informed decisions about their treatment.
Led by Mr Rahul Nath, a prominent consultant in gynaecological oncology, with support from experienced nurses and technicians, London Gynae Cancer Care offers expert care in the diagnosis and management of women’s cancers at all stages – from the earliest stages that may not even be causing any symptoms to advanced cancers that have spread beyond their original site. A range of services, supported by the latest scientific evidence, are available that together form a comprehensive care package tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient.
Screening for cervical cancer involves regular cervical smear tests. Among women aged between 35 and 64 years, the risk of cervical cancer is about 60–80% lower in women who are screened than in unscreened women, and the benefit increases with age.
Sometimes, it may be necessary to test for specific cancers in women who have symptoms suggesting that they might have the disease. This is particularly true for cervical and vulval cancers, and to a lesser extent for vaginal cancer.
About one in every two people will be diagnosed with cancer at some time in their lives. The very thought of cancer can be overwhelming or even frightening, while the disease and its treatment can place great strain on both patients and their families and friends. Recognising this, London Gynae Cancer Care offers compassionate care, information and support to our patients and their families at all stages of their cancer journey.
But treating cancer isn’t the whole picture. At London Gynae Cancer Care, we also offer a range of services aimed at screening for cancer in women at risk, or diagnosing early cancer that has not yet spread (preinvasive cancer).
