Women's Cancers

Specialized care for all types of cancer in women.

Each year, our Henry Ford women’s cancer team treats nearly 400 women with female cancers. These cancers affect the reproductive parts of a woman’s body, such as the uterus, ovaries, vulva (outside of the vagina) and cervix.

Female cancers can cause a wide range of physical and emotional complications that require personalized treatment on a case-by-case basis.

Why should I choose Henry Ford for female cancer treatment?

Our women’s cancer team treats all types of women’s cancers, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, vulvar cancer, cervical and vaginal cancers, and uterine cancer.

You’ll likely have questions about what to expect during your cancer treatment and recovery. Please ask -- we want you to have the education and support you need to recover and get back to living your life.

If you are diagnosed with a women’s cancer, our team of specialists will work with you to create a treatment plan based on your unique condition. Whenever possible, we opt for the least invasive treatment options that give the most positive outcome.
