Cervical cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in females in India. Unfortunately it is detected at a late stage when it is not curable. If cervical cancer is detected at early stage, it can be surgically removed. The peculiarity of cervical cancer is that in early stage it does not cause any noticeable problem to the patients. The only effective way to detect cervical cancer is colposcopic examination by a trained gynaec-oncosurgeon. Colposcope is an optical instrument which detects cervical cancer at a very early stage with high accuracy. It is a portable instrument with a light source and magnifying lenses to examine woman’s vagina and cervix for cancer and abnormal areas that may become cancer. Colposcopy procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia.

Expert gynaec-oncosurgeon at Shalby hospital combines colposcopy and Pap smear in the most judicious way to screen cervical cancer at a very early stage.
Treatment of genital cancers like those of uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva, and ovaries, are done in co-ordination between the trained gynecological oncosurgeons, medical oncologist, and radiotherapists for optimal care during surgery and subsequent care and follow up.

The department offers services in following areas:

  • Well Woman Clinic for early detection of gynecological malignancies, especially Pap’s smears for cervical cancer
  • Colposcopy Clinic Referral Centre for pre-invasive cervical cancer. Colposcopies are performed and directed biopsies taken.
