Not all cancers behave alike. Rare cancer types may respond best to less commonly known therapies.
At UChicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center, our gynecologic cancer team members are experts in treating rare cancers. We take an individualized approach to treatment by incorporating decades of experience, the latest research and innovative therapies. We also offer clinical trials at several of our locations, making access to novel therapies convenient and closer to home.
Some examples of rare gynecologic cancers include, but are not limited to:
- Low-grade epithelial ovarian cancer
- Borderline (low malignant potential) ovarian tumors
- Mucinous ovarian tumors
- Ovarian carcinosarcoma
- Uterine serous cancer
- Uterine carcinosarcoma
