Women from Fort Myers, Florida, who require treatment for cervical cancer are encouraged to visit Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Featuring a multispecialty team that focuses exclusively on cervical malignancies, our gynecological clinic is a premier destination for comprehensive cancer treatment and supportive care.
In a single location, women at Moffitt can be seen by gynecologic oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists, plastic surgeons, dietitians, social workers, counselors and other professionals. Moffitt’s tumor board collaboratively develops an individualized cervical cancer treatment plan for each patient, which may include a combination of:
- Chemotherapy to destroy metastasized cancer cells throughout the body
- Radiation therapy to eliminate cancer cells in the cervix
- Laser surgery to remove surface lesions
- Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery to address various aspects of treatment
- Other advanced therapies
Moffitt also leads trailblazing research initiatives and a robust clinical trial program to discover breakthroughs in cervical cancer treatment. Participants in our clinical trial program are able to receive the latest cancer therapies before they are made widely available. As a result of our efforts, the National Cancer Institute has designated us as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and we are the only such center based in Florida.
