Nearly 80,000 women are diagnosed with Oncology Gynecology in the United States, and half of those are uterine cancer diagnoses with a mortality of 8,000 women per year. Ovarian cancer found to be the 2nd most common Oncology Gynecology with about 22,000 new cases per year, leading to 16,000 deaths yearly. Mortality for cervical cancer have decreased as Pap smears have become commonplace. Still, there are about 12,000 diagnoses every year with about 4,200 women die from this disease annually. Vulvar and vaginal cancer are relatively rare and when caught and treated early offers of reasonably good prognosis. 4,500 women are diagnosed with vulvar cancer each year, with about 950 women die from it. Vaginal cancer, meanwhile, account for about 2,600 diagnoses per year, and about 840 deaths. Every woman is at risk for developing a Oncology Gynecology. It is estimated that there will be about 98,000 new cases diagnosed and approximately 30,000 deaths from Oncology Gynecology in the United States during 2015 as per American Cancer Society. Out of which Uterine cancer has the large portion about 50% of cases with an estimated mortality rate of 18.5%. The Ovarian cancer has the highest estimated mortality rate at 66%.

Global Gynecology Oncology 2017 is a platform to discuss and learn about Cause of the cancer it’s Symptoms, Pathogenesis, Types, Tests, Screening, Diagnosis and Monitoring Gynecology Treatment, Surgical Methods, Prevention, clinical trials and research, Sexual and reproductive issues and Role of imaging in Gynecology Oncology conferences Gynecology Oncology, Ovarian Cancer, Breast Cancer, Uterine Cancer, Vaginal cancer, Cervical Cancer, and Vulvar Cancer , Gynecology & obstetrics, Heredities in Obs and Gyn, Treatments in Pregnancy, Breast Disease, Prenatal Diagnosis, Gynecology & surgical procedure, Gynecologic cancers, Critical care in women health, Contraception, Health related Behaviours In Women, Infertility, Nursing and Health care, Gynecological Endocrinology, Uro gynecology, Maternal-fetal medicine, Sexually transmitted Disease, Vulvar and Vaginal Disease, Reproductive medicine & Immunology, Pelvic and Sexually Transmitted Infection, Nutrition in Cancer Care

Track 1: Gynecologic Oncology

Gynecology Oncology is the study about any cancer that begins in a woman's reproductive organs. The five Gynecologic cancers starts in the woman's pelvis at different places. Each cancer is unique by its symptoms, signs, risk factors and in their strategies of prevention. All these five different types of Gynecology Cancers risk increases with the age. When these cancers were diagnosed at their early stages, the treatment will be more efficient.The five major types of cancer affect a woman's reproductive organs are ovarian, uterine, cervical,vulvar, and vaginal cancerAll these as a group are known as Gynecologic cancers 


Track 2: Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common invasive Oncology Gynecology in females worldwide. It accounts for 16% of all female cancers and 22.9% of invasive cancers in women. 18.2% of all cancer deaths worldwide, including both males and females, are from breast cancer. Breast cancer rates are much higher in developed nations compared to developing ones. There are several reasons for this, with possibly life-expectancy being one of the key factors - breast cancer is more common in elderly women; women in the richest countries live much longer than those in the poorest nations. The different lifestyles and eating habits of females in rich and poor countries are also contributory factors, experts believe.


Track 3: Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is most common in Gynecologic Cancers in women who have been through the menopause (usually over the age of 50), although it can affect women of any age. As the symptoms of ovarian cancer can be similar to those of other conditions, it can be difficult to recognise. However, there are early symptoms to look out for, such as persistent bloating, pain in the pelvis and lower stomach, and difficulty eating. The treatment you receive for ovarian cancer will depend on several things, including the stage of your cancer and your general health. Chemotherapy is the main treatment for ovarian cancer, but your treatment will usually involve a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.


Track 4: Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus. The uterus is the hollow, pear-shaped pelvic organ in women where fetal development occurs. Endometrial cancer is often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding, which prompts women to see their doctors. If endometrial cancer is discovered early, removing the uterus surgically often cures endometrial cancer. Endometrial cancer can spread to other parts of your body, making it more difficult to treat successfully. Endometrial cancer that spreads (metastasizes) most often travels to the lungs.


Track 5: Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops in a woman's cervix (the entrance to the womb from the vagina).Cancer of the cervix often has no symptoms in its early stages. If you do have symptoms, the most common is unusual vaginal bleeding, which can occur after sex, in between periods or after the menopause. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV is a very common virus that can be passed on through any type of sexual contact with a man or a woman. Treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination. The choice of treatment depends on the size of the tumor.


Track 6: Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer is the most common cancer of a woman’s reproductive system. Uterine cancer begins when normal cells in the uterus change and grow uncontrollably, forming a mass called a tumor. A tumor can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant, meaning it can spread to other parts of the body. There are two major types of uterine cancer 1)Adenocarcinoma. This makes up more than 80% of uterine cancers. It develops from cells in the lining of the uterus called the endometrium. 2)Sarcoma type of uterine cancer develops in the supporting tissues of the uterine glands or in the myometrium, which is the uterine muscle.


Track 7: Vulvar/Vaginal cancer

Vulvar cancer is a rare type of Oncology Gynecology cancer. It forms in a woman's external genitals, called the vulva. The cancer usually grows slowly over several years. First, precancerous cells grow on vulvar skin. This is called vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN), or dysplasia. Not all VIN cases turn into cancer, but it is best to treat it early. Radiation therapy may be used in more advanced vulvar cancer cases when disease has spread to the lymph nodes and/or pelvis. It may be performed before or after surgery. Women with vulvar cancer should have routine follow-up and exams with their oncologist, often every 3 months for the first 2–3 years after treatment. They should not have routine surveillance imaging to monitor the cancer unless new symptoms appear or tumor markers begin rising. Imaging without these indications is discouraged because it is unlikely to detect a recurrence or improve survival and is associated with its own side effects and financial costs.

Track 8: Gynecology & Obstetrics

Gynecology & Obstetrics is the medical and surgical specialty that focuses on the research prospectus of reproductive system in females that includes Archives of Gynecology & Obstetrics,especially the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the female reproductive organs.It deals with the study of diseases of the female reproductive organs, including the breasts

Track 9: Cancer Drugs

The implementation of new drug treatments has improved the prognosis for advanced cancers of the cervix, uterus, and ovary. Platinum analogs are the most effective drugs in the treatment of ovarian cancer. Fertility drugs (FD) are spreading worldwide fast and therefore many studies have reviewed the possible association between the use of these drugs and cancer. Since the drugs used for ovulation induction during in vitro fertilization (IVF) like hCG, hMG, rFSH increase the levels of gonadal hormones, concerns have grown regarding the risk of developing cancer in breast, ovary, endometrium, and other target organs.If the treatment plan involves chemotherapy you may experience physical, emotional, and/or psychological side effects related to this treatment. The side effects of ovarian cancer treatment depend on the type of treatment and may be different for each woman


Track 10: Gynecologic Oncology: Pathogenesis

Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is the general name for a group of rare tumors that occur during pregnancy in the fetalchorion, GTD can occur in any kind of pregnancy which is almost always curable if found early in Oncology Gynecology Pathogenesis. Uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a rare uterine malignancy it is an aggressive tumor associated with a high risk of recurrence and death, regardless of stage.Choriocarcinoma is a cancer that develops most commonly from abnormal placenta and it is nearly 100% curable if appropriate chemotherapy is administered after the tumor mass is separated from inside the uterus.


Track 11: Gynecologic Surgery 

In Oncology Gynecology the Gynecologic Surgical methods include- Initial Debulking surgery,   which may be performed by variety of procedures depending on the type & stage of ovarian cancer based on individual fertility concerns. The procedure for removal of ovary and fallopian tubes is known as Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery. The surgical removal of uterus and cervix is known as.Total hysterectomy. Lymph node biopsy will be performed by collecting the fluid sample from the abdomen. Omentectomy is surgical process for removing of omentum partially or as a whole. Fold of fatty tissue inside the abdomen is known as Omentum.  


Track 12: Role of imaging in Gynecologic Oncology

Oncology Gynecology the endometrial cancer, MRI is used to identify myometrial invasion and extrauterine disease, allowing preoperative surgical planning in women with serious comorbidity. In cervical cancer, MRI has an established role in local staging. By assessing the proximal extension of tumours in young women, MRI determines the feasibility of fertility-preserving surgery. It is also used to plan and administer radiotherapy. This optimises tumour radiation, while limiting unwanted radiation to the bowel and other pelvic organs.Gynecologic Cancer the ovarian cancer, MRI is useful in young women as it is superior to ultrasound in diagnosing endometriomas, dermoids and fibroids, which can be misdiagnosed by ultrasound as malignant lesions.


Track 13: Clinical Gynecologic Oncology

Clinical Gynecologic Oncology is a specialized clinical field of medication that emphasis on cancers of the female reproductive system, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer. As consultants, they have all-encompassing preparation in the identification and treatment of these cancers.

Track 14Nursing and Health care

As the world becomes more complex and knowledge in every field becomes more extensive and detailed, it’s increasingly difficult to master everything in any one area. This is certainly true in the field of Gynecologists practice, which is undoubtedly one of the reasons for the recent trend towards specialization. However, this is only one of many factors contributing to the shift. Today, the multitude of pressures affecting Radiologists in general—and comprehensive Gynecologists in particular has become so oppressive that many doctors wonder whether comprehensive Gynecologists can survive.



Gynecologic Cancer Statistics

Gynecologic cancers are categorized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. These cancers originate in the female reproductive organs such as uterus, cervix, ovaries, vagina , vulva and Breast cancer. Several factors are responsible for the occurrence of these cancers. It includes various classes of cancer originating genes, known as oncogenes, which promotes the abnormal growth of cells. The abnormal function of these genes regulates through aging, smoking and environmental influences. In adding, infertility, obesity, mutations, early start of menstruation and late start of menopause also causes gynecologic cancers.

Gynecologic cancers are also originated by some viruses. For instance, almost all cervical cancers and vaginal and vulva cancers are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). These gynecologic cancers are treated by medication therapies, radiation therapy, surgeries and chemotherapy. Treatments of these cancers are depends upon the type and different stages of cancers.

The global gynecologic cancers market is categorized based on various types of cancers and their treatment therapies. It includes uterine, ovarian cancer, vaginal cancer, vulvar cancer and cervical cancer.

Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer. It is the most common type of gynecologic cancer. Major risk factors of uterine cancer include the use of estrogen without progesterone, hypertension, diabetes, tamoxifen, obesity and later age of menopause. Obese women have higher circulating levels of estrogen, which increases their risk for uterine cancer. Cervical cancer is the second most common type of gynecologic cancer. Ovarian cancer is mainly divided into three types: germ cell cancer, epithelial ovarian cancer and stromal ovarian cancer. Vulvar and vaginal cancers are rarest forms of gynecologic cancer. It usually affects women with age group of 50-70 years.

In terms of geographic, North America and Europe dominates the global gynecologic cancers market. The U.S. represents the largest market for gynecologic cancers followed by Canada in North America. In Europe, France, Germany and the U.K. holds major share of gynecologic cancers market. However, Asia is expected to show high growth rates in the next five years in global gynecologic cancers market. This is due to increasing awareness among people about various types of gynecologic cancers in the region. Japan, China and India are expected to be the fastest growing gynecologic cancers markets in Asia.

However, patent expiry of various major drugs is key restraint for the global gynecologic cancers market. In addition, stringent regulatory hurdles also obstruct the growth of global gynecologic cancers market. Advancement in personalized medicines holds immense potential for the growth of global gynecologic cancers market. Increasing mergers and acquisitions between drugs manufacturing companies and government bodies is key trend of global gynecologic cancers market.

Breast cancers can start from different parts of the breast. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts that carry milk. A small number of cancers start in other tissues in the breast. These cancers are called sarcomas and lymphomas and are not really thought of as breast cancers. If cancer cells have spread to your lymph nodes, there is a higher chance that the cells could have spread (metastasized) to other sites in your body. The more lymph nodes with breast cancer cells, the more likely it is that the cancer may be found in other organs as well. Because of this, finding cancer in one or more lymph nodes often affects your treatment plan. Usually, surgery to remove one or more lymph nodes will be needed to know whether the cancer has spread there.Still, not all women with cancer cells in their lymph nodes develop metastases, and some women can have no cancer cells in their lymph nodes and later develop metastases.

Scope and Importance of Gynecologic Oncology Research

Ovarian cancer presents a very varied prognosis depending on age: whilst 70% of the group between 15 and 44 years survives this form of cancer, this is the case for only 19% of those over 74 years-old.

Cervical cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in females’ worldwide, accounting for 9% (529,800) of the total new cancer cases and 8% (275,100) of the total cancer deaths among females. More than 85% of these cases and deaths occur in developing countries.

Tumor biology early detection, and treatment of ovarian cancer in older women as compared to younger women suffering with this malignancy. Effort was devoted to the type of problems met in conducting the analyses and, where data were inadequate, recommending research guidelines or approaches.

The center are at the forefront of research in the early discovery of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer , which is involved in developing blood tests to precisely determine the absence or presence of early stage ovarian cancer before it reveals, as well as on going translational research programs for all Gynecologic Cancers.  Physicians are also involved in leading-edge programs in the prevention of cervical cancer through regular screenings and the identification of precancerous cervical lesions associated with papilloma virus infections.

Organized screening procedures can support to detect Gynecologic Cancer, including cervical cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer, early.

A pap smear can identify cervical and uterine cancers. It is suggested to begin analysis every three years early at age 21.

A pelvic exam images the rectum, vagina, cervix, fallopian tubes, uterus, ovaries, and Pelvic tests should be done annually, beginning at 21 and can help detect irregularities of the female reproductive system.

An endometrial tissue sample checks for abnormal cells or signs of uterine cancer which can be done for women with a high risk for endometrial cancer due to an inborn susceptibility or when there are symptoms that need to be evaluated.

Why it’s in Chicago, USA.

Gynecologic Cancer confers a large burden among women in the United States. Several evidence-based interventions are available to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality from these cancers. The National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) is uniquely positioned to implement these interventions in the US population. Every woman is at risk for developing a Gynecologic Cancer & Breast Cancer. It is estimated that there will be about 91,000 new cases diagnosed and approximately 28,000 deaths from Gynecologic Cancers in the United States during 2014.Post-menopausal women aged 45–70 years have the highest risk of developing uterine cancer. It is more common in Caucasian women than in other populations. Women living in North America or Europe develop uterine cancer more often than those living in other parts of the world. Women in higher income groups also tend to be affected more often than women in lower income groups.
