Endometrial cancer develops when cells divide unchecked in the lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium. This accumulation of cells can eventually become a malignant tumor and require treatment. Individuals from Clearwater, Florida, who have been diagnosed with endometrial cancer can find the treatment services they require nearby at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Our gynecological clinic provides endometrial cancer treatment and supportive care services.
Patients who seek treatment at Moffitt benefit from the collaborative approach of our multispecialty team that treats endometrial cancer. Within the gynecological clinic, that team includes:
- Gynecologic oncologists
- Nurse practitioners
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Medical oncologists
This multispecialty team meets regularly as a tumor board to review new endometrial cancer cases. We recognize that no two cases are alike, which is why each patient receives a treatment plan tailored to her needs. Treatment options may include a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or hormone therapy. Our surgeons are experienced in the most advanced techniques, including robotic surgery and minimally invasive approaches to treatment. Moffitt patients may also have access to new treatments that are not yet widely available by participating in a clinical trial. Moffitt’s specialists are dedicated to advancing cancer research and treatment options through our robust clinical trials program, a commitment that has earned us the designation of Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute.
Moffitt patients also have access to a range of supportive care professionals, such as social workers, who can help address the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges involved with undergoing treatment for endometrial cancer. For the convenience of our patients, all of our supportive care services are provided under the same roof where they receive treatment. Additionally, for individuals traveling from Clearwater, FL, and other areas, Moffitt can provide assistance finding local accommodations that offer discounted rates to patients and meet our high standards for hygiene control.
