Chemotherapy or radiotherapy

September 22, 2015 by lcadm

In some cases, chemotherapy or radiotherapy may be needed either to reduce the risk of a cancer returning after surgery (this is called adjuvant treatment) or to reduce the size of a tumour before surgery can be performed (this is called neoadjuvant therapy). London Gynae Cancer care will arrange referrals to appropriate specialists in cases where chemotherapy or radiotherapy are needed.

You can find out more about the use of chemotherapy or radiotherapy by going to Understanding gynaecological cancers or Cancer information resources.

London Gynae Cancer Care

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).

The Lister Hospital


Located in the heart of London, London Gynae Cancer Care specialises in the management of gynaecological cancers such as ovarian, cervical or uterine cancer.
