The latest advances in cervical cancer treatment are provided in the Gulf Coast region of Florida at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Whether you have just been diagnosed with cervical cancer or you would like a second or third opinion, you can confidently turn to our cervical cancer program to receive the expertise and supportive care you need. As our patient, you will be tended to by a multispecialty team that focuses exclusively on the evaluation and treatment of cervical cancer. Our gynecologic clinic also includes reproductive endocrinologists and supportive care professionals to help address the physical and emotional challenges that can accompany a cervical cancer diagnosis.
There are several factors that influence a patient’s ideal course of cervical cancer treatment, such as age and overall health, as well as the cellular makeup and progression of the malignancy. This is why it’s so important to choose a cancer center that takes an individualized approach to treatment. At Moffitt, our tumor board collaboratively discusses and develops each patient’s treatment plan based on her specific diagnosis and unique health care needs. Some of our treatment options include:
- Laser surgery to remove surface lesions
- Robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgery to facilitate various aspects of treatment
- Internal or external radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells in the cervix
- Systemic chemotherapy to destroy cancer cells that have spread throughout the body
Moffitt also spearheads ambitious research initiatives and clinical trials to improve treatment for cervical cancer and other gynecological malignancies. Patients who are eligible to participate in a clinical trial have access to exciting breakthroughs in treatment before they are made widely available. Thanks to our efforts, the National Cancer Institute has designated us a Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only one based in Florida.
If you reside outside of the Gulf Coast region of FL but still want to receive treatment at Moffitt, we encourage you to take advantage of discounted rates at our partner hotels. These hotels meet our superior hygiene standards and provide comfortable accommodations for patients and their families throughout the treatment process.
