Care and Treatment of Female and Gynecologic Cancers

Gynecological Cancer Expertise

With expertise in the basic and clinical sciences, Stanford investigators are delving into the basic origins of female and gynecologic cancers and in turn translating their findings into the most advanced diagnostic and treatment strategies available today.

Some of our translations research efforts include:

  • Stem cell research that may influence new treatments
  • Early detection of ovarian cancer using biomarkers and new methods of imaging
  • Understanding drug resistance in certain ovarian cancers
  • New ways of classifying ovarian cancer; development of vaccines to prevent relapse
  • Use of novel chemotherapeutics in uterine tumors
  • Mechanisms of HPV-induced malignancy, and new prevention and detection strategies for cervical cancer
  • Clinical trials studying novel chemotherapeutic agents, prophylactic chemotherapy, biologic agents, angiogenesis inhibitors, vaccines and antibody therapies

Located in the new Stanford Women's Cancer Center, a warm and welcoming facility, our program offers comprehensive treatment options and supportive services that honor your unique needs:

  • Convenient, single location for most of your outpatient cancer care
  • Advanced treatments, including minimally invasive surgery, state-of-the art radiotherapy and cutting-edge clinical trials
  • Weekly tumor board meetings with cancer experts to review your case and discuss therapeutic options on site
  • Guest service professionals to help you navigate and manage treatment, and a wide array of supportive services, including counseling for psychological issues, sexual side effects and changes in body image
  • Collaborative research to improve cancer prevention, detection, treatment and patient outcomes

Clinical Trials

As an academic medical institution, the Stanford Cancer Center is committed to improving the standard of care for the millions of individuals worldwide who receive a cancer diagnosis each year. Drawing upon the expertise of more than 240 researchers and clinicians from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Humanities & Sciences, the center is at the forefront of today's advances in cancer research and medicine.

A key component of the Stanford Women's Cancer Center is translational research, where laboratory discoveries are shepherded into the clinic, improving prevention efforts, early diagnosis and treatment, and patient outcomes. Other researchers are focused on areas such as molecular classification of tumors, improved imaging and gene sequencing methods. 

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.

Clinical trial eligibility flowcharts

Eligibility flowcharts map clinical trials to specific types of cancers to determine if a participant is eligible for the particular clinical trial. View all gynecologic cancer eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
