Gestational trophoblastic tumours

We are one of only a few cancer centres in Canada to offer specialized treatment. We are internationally known for our expertise and lead in the management of these tumours.

Patients see many clinicians at the same time at our multidisciplinary and inter-professional Gynecological Cancer clinic for coordinated, expedited care and assessment, and to discuss an individualized treatment plan.

Diagnosis and treatment options

Treatment varies depending on findings and symptoms. Your personalized therapy may include:

  • Surgery to remove tissue from the uterus to allow for expert pathologic assessment of this type of tumour. This surgery may be the only treatment needed.
  • Imaging for staging.
  • Chemotherapy that may involve single or multi-regimen treatment
