Vaginal Cancer Treatment for Residents of St. Petersburg, FL
Vaginal cancer treatment often involves surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. The exact combination of treatments that a specific patient will receive depends on a number of individualized factors, such as the stage of the tumor and the types of cells that are present. At Moffitt Cancer Center, patients from St. Petersburg, Florida, and other nearby areas can get multiple expert opinions in a single location, explore a variety of advanced treatment options and confidently decide on the plan that’s most appropriate for their specific needs.
At Moffitt, we offer:
- Topical therapies for vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VAIN)
- Laser vaporization treatment for early-stage vaginal cancers
- Traditional and minimally invasive vaginal cancer surgeries
- Single-agent chemotherapy medications and multi-drug combinations
- Internal and external beam radiation therapy
We also offer a number of novel therapies through our clinical trials, which make it possible for patients to access the latest therapies before they are available in other settings. These trials are ever-evolving to reflect the latest advances in vaginal cancer treatment, with new medications, surgical techniques, radiation therapy delivery methods and targeted treatments being introduced on a regular basis. And, because Moffitt recognizes that whole-patient care is crucial for improving quality of life outcomes, we also provide a number of supportive care services alongside our clinical treatments. Each of these options can be accessed with or without a physician’s referral.
