Women who have been diagnosed with uterine cancer can find the treatment and supportive care they need at Moffitt Cancer Center. Located on the Gulf Coast of Florida in Tampa, Moffitt features a gynecological clinic with surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists, pathologists, radiologists and other experts who focus exclusively on malignancies that affect the female reproductive system. Our multispecialty approach to treatment, combined with our advanced surgical procedures and therapies, translates directly into better outcomes and enhanced quality of life for our patients.
A woman’s ideal course of uterine cancer treatment will depend on several key factors, such as the origin of the cancer, the progression of the disease and the patient’s overall health and medical preferences. Because no two women are exactly the same, Moffitt’s tumor board collaboratively develops each patient’s treatment plan to accommodate her unique needs. Many plans include an individualized combination of:
- Minimally invasive surgery and robotic-assisted procedures to remove cancerous growths and/or the uterus, as well as facilitate other aspects of treatment
- Radiation therapy to shrink cancerous growths using high-energy X-rays
- Chemotherapy to destroy cells that have spread to other areas of the body
- Hormone therapy to inhibit the production of cancer-promoting hormones
Moffitt offers the latest advances in uterine cancer treatment, but we won’t be satisfied until there is a cure for every woman. That’s why we spearhead several trailblazing research initiatives and a robust clinical trial program to discover breakthroughs in gynecological cancer treatment. Thanks in part to these efforts, the National Cancer Institute has designated Moffitt as a Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only such center based in Florida.
Patients in our uterine cancer program also have access to supportive care services in the same location where they receive clinical treatment. Our team includes dietitians, counselors, massage therapists and other compassionate professionals who help women cope with the emotional and physical challenges of a cancer diagnosis.
Women and their families who are traveling to Moffitt from other cities along the Gulf Coast of FL or throughout the state for uterine cancer treatment are invited to take advantage of discounted rates with our partner hotels. The hotels are located near our cancer center and provide clean, comfortable and welcoming accommodations for our out-of-town patients to rest and heal.
