One of the most common conditions for which women are referred to gynecologic oncologists are not for cancer, but for conditions that may mimic or lead to cancer. Pelvic masses that have the potential for malignancy are best managed by a gynecologic oncologist who has the expertise to perform the appropriate surgery at the time needed if a cancer is diagnosed. We also specialize in premalignant changes in the cervix and vulva that may require repeated office procedures such as colposcopy and biopsies. A colposcopy is essentially a microscope used to look for abnormal cells on the cervix or vulva. We also specialize in the management of premalignant changes in young women where aggressive surgical interventions can be minimized to prolong fertility as desired.
