Fallopian Tube Cancer

Fallopian tube cancer is an extremely rare form of uterine cancer that develops in the tubes that connect the ovaries and uterus.

While fallopian tube cancer may not cause early signs or symptoms, some signs of fallopian tube cancer can include pain, pressure, or swelling in the abdomen, unusual vaginal bleeding, or a lump in the pelvic area.

Like breast cancer or cervical cancer, fallopian tube cancer can be a scary diagnosis for many people; however, it’s highly curable when detected early. The GW Cancer Center's Gynecological Oncology Program is home to a highly skilled team of experts who specialize in treating fallopian tube cancer, which has a five-year survival rate of up to 95%.
