Challenging Cases in Gynecologic Cancers: Rare and Challenging Tumors

Rare gynecologic tumors pose a significant challenge to even the most experienced clinicians as there are few published guidelines on how best to manage these often complex presentations. Sharing of information between clinicians is an effective approach to gain insight into the disease and to develop a reasonable and effective treatment based on pooled knowledge. This session will include a series of cases of rare tumors providing background information, work up strategies, management and outcome data from a review of the literature and personal experience. 

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents and nurses.

Learning Objectives

• Identify rare gynecologic tumors and understand some of the challenges that they pose.
• Develop and implement a treatment plan for these rare tumors.
