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. In such cases, the aim is to identify and treat the cancer before it can spread to surrounding tissues.

London Gynae Cancer Care offers a number of tests for the diagnosis of preinvasive and invasive cancers. As appropriate, these may include cervical smears, tumour marker blood tests, and ultrasound scans. If a cancer is detected, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computed tomography) or PET (positron emission spectroscopy) scans can be arranged as necessary.

Rahul graduated in medicine from the University of Wales, and progressed his training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the West Midlands and in London.

He developed an interest in cancer early in his career. He completed a research project studying the immunology of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection of the cervix in normal women, those with abnormal cervical smears and with systemic lupus erythematosus at King’s College, London resulting in a MD degree.

Rahul trained as a specialist in gynaecological oncology and was appointed as a consultant gynaecological oncologist in 2006. He was lead clinician for gynaecology (2012 – 2014), and is presently clinical director for women’s services and joint clinical academic group lead for King’s Health Partners. He maintains a busy clinical practice.

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).
