1. Why is uterine cancer better treated in Turkey?


1. Accurate early diagnosis

Initially, uterine cancer is difficult to diagnose. It is asymptomatic and is detected only during a qualified gynecological examination. At the same time, early detection of a tumor is a determining factor for the effectiveness of the entire treatment.

In the CIS, only 10% of cases of female genital oncology are detected during a routine examination. In the largest number of women (40%), the disease is detected at 3 stages. After completion of treatment at this stage, 30 out of 100 patients return to normal life.

For early detection of endometrial or uterine cancer in foreign clinics, special diagnostic programs have been developed. Such an examination makes it possible to timely detect a malignant pathology or a predisposition to it in 95 women out of 100.

2. Organ-preserving operations

In the CIS countries, doctors prescribe a hysterectomy (complete removal of the uterus) at any stage of endometrial or uterine cancer. Foreign specialists give preference to organ-preserving surgeries. This allows you to remove the malignant tumor, but preserve the cervix and ovaries. Thanks to this, a woman avoids hormonal disorders and lives a full sex life.

In Turkish clinics, a complete hysterectomy is prescribed only at 3-4 stages. In this case, the operation is performed laparoscopically through small punctures in the abdominal cavity of 2 cm in size. This avoids large scars and shortens the recovery period by 2 times. In large medical centers in Turkey, a robotic Da Vinci installation is used to remove the tumor. This installation performs the operation with maximum precision and preservation of the surrounding tissues.

2. How to choose a clinic for the treatment of uterine cancer?

When choosing a clinic for the treatment of endometrial or uterine cancer, it is necessary to consider:

  • qualifications of gynecological oncologists and surgeons;

  • statistics on the success of the treatment of uterine cancer at different stages;

  • equipment of clinics (modern diagnostic methods and robotic surgical systems).


3. Diagnosis of uterine cancer in Turkey

For the diagnosis of uterine cancer in foreign clinics are prescribed:

  • complete blood count;

  • blood test for tumor markers;

  • hysteroscopy for visual examination of the uterus;

  • gynecological ultrasound, which allows you to establish the size and shape of the organ;

  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine the exact location, size and shape of the formation;

  • positron emission computed tomography (PET-CT) to detect the prevalence of the disease in adjacent tissues and accurately determine the stage;

  • biopsy of the tumor.


The patient can undergo a biopsy at the place of residence. In this case, she needs to bring tissue samples to the selected clinic for research.

4. Surgical treatment of uterine cancer

For the surgical treatment of endometrial and uterine cancer, hysterectomy is performed in foreign clinics. Depending on the type of operation, surgeons remove:

  • only the organ affected by the disease, while they preserve the cervix and ovaries (subtotal hysterectomy);

  • the uterus with the cervix (total hysterectomy);

  • uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes (hysterosalpingo-oophorectomy);

  • the organ itself, along with the appendages, the cervix, part of the vagina, lymph nodes and adjacent tissues (radical hysterectomy).


The doctor chooses the procedure depending on the stage and prevalence of the disease, the age of the patient.


Hysterectomy is performed by the following methods:

  • abdominal surgery - the surgeon removes the organ through one large incision up to 20 cm in the peritoneal region;

  • laparoscopic intervention - the doctor performs all actions through 3-4 thin incisions (up to 2 cm each);

  • vaginal hysterectomy - to remove the uterus, one incision is made in the vaginal area, while after the operation there are no visible scars or scars.


5. New in the treatment of uterine cancer in Turkey

In Turkish clinics, laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed using the SILS method. In this case, the surgeon performs all actions through a single puncture in the navel. After the operation, the patient does not have any visible lesions on the skin.


The Da Vinci robot is used for hysterectomy in Turkey. It is a robotic surgical system that operates with maximum precision. The operation is controlled by a doctor who controls the actions of the robot. Da Vinci removes the uterus in 1 hour, while traditional surgery takes 2 hours. Complications after robotic hysterectomy are minimized.



6. Can the removal of the uterus be avoided in cancer?

Removal of the uterus is the main treatment for endometrial or uterine cancer. It is most effective, it allows you to remove all the affected tissue and prevent the recurrence of the disease. In some cases, at the initial stages, foreign doctors use non-surgical techniques.

The doctor prescribes the exact treatment program and the necessary procedures only after a comprehensive diagnosis. In doing so, he takes into account the patient's age, stage and prevalence of the disease.


7. Treatment of uterine cancer in Turkey without surgery


For the treatment of cancer of the endometrium and the body of the uterus without surgery, the following procedures are prescribed:

1. Radiation therapy for uterine cancer

Irradiation is carried out using linear accelerators. During the procedure, a malignant tumor is exposed to directed radiation, which destroys cancer cells and does not damage healthy tissue.

Radiation therapy is prescribed at any stage of the disease - as the main treatment or in combination with surgery and chemotherapy. On average, it takes up to 30 sessions.

2. Chemotherapy for uterine cancer

Chemotherapy for cancer of the uterus is given before surgery in order to shrink the swelling. After surgery, this treatment destroys the remaining cancer cells.

3. Brachytherapy for uterine cancer

The doctor places a radiation source in the vagina. In this case, the radioactive rays act directly on the cancer cells. They receive a much larger proportion of radiation than with external irradiation, therefore they are destroyed faster.

8. Duration of treatment for uterine cancer

The duration of the diagnosis depends on the clinic chosen for treatment.


On average, the examination takes from 3 to 10 days. The duration of hospitalization during the operation is 4-10 days.


The duration of radiation therapy is up to 2 months.


The number of chemotherapy courses depends on the stage of the disease and the general condition of the patient.


9. Recovery from uterine cancer treatment


The recovery time after treatment for uterine cancer depends on the therapy and the medical procedures.


After surgery, the patient may be prescribed hormone therapy and a special diet.


In the first 3-6 months, it is necessary to limit physical activity and not lift weights more than 3 kg.


After chemotherapy, your doctor prescribes drugs that reduce the side effects of your primary treatment.
