What Is Tubal Cancer?
Fallopian tube cancer, also known as tubal cancer, affects the Fallopian tubes that bridge the ovaries and uterus. It is a very rare cancer, with only about 2,000 cases reported worldwide. Symptoms of tubal cancer are similar to those of other gynecological cancers.
Our Women’s Health oncologists at the North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute can accurately diagnose this rare cancer, as well as develop the appropriate treatment regimen for the best patient outcomes and work closely with medical and radiation oncologists for those patients requiring additional treatment.
