Dr. Rahul Roy Chowdhury

Gynecologic Oncologist in Kolkata

I have been practicing as a Gynecological Oncologist for several years, following my training in the United Kingdom as a gynecologist and an oncologist. As a gynecological cancer specialist I have always felt, that the most important bits of information that a patient or their relatives may want to know about their disease or treatment facilities available locally are not comprehensively covered anywhere. Hence , this website provides an overview or a second opinion of sorts to ensure that patients are indeed being offered a quality of care that is standard both nationally and internationally.

This site also helps to identify the gynecological oncology services for patients in Kolkata, Bangladesh and the rest of India. Case histories have been provided under FAQ to stress the importance of consulting the right professional for optimal outcome. In case you require further information please write to us. If you would like a consultation check the location and availability at various centers in and around Kolkata and book an appointment.

Gynaecological Cancers

There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval – but awareness levels of these cancers are very low.There are common signs and symptoms across some of the gynaecological cancers such as abnormal vaginal bleeding. Other signs are less obvious, and could be due to different health conditions, for example abdominal bloating can indicate Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Women can reduce the risk of developing ovarian cancer in many ways; however, there is no prevention method for the disease. All women are at risk because ovarian cancer does not strike only one ethnic or age group. A healthcare professional can help a woman identify ways to reduce her risk as well as decide if consultation with a genetic counselor is appropriate.

Some factors which increase the chances of a woman having uterine cancer.The most common symptom of uterine cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding. It may start as a watery, blood-streaked flow that gradually contains more blood. After menopause, any vaginal bleeding is abnormal.

It is the skin that surrounds the outside of the vagina, between the legs of a woman.This cancer is sometimes diagnosed on examination during another procedure. Symptoms of vulval cancer include vulval itching, irritation or pain. Women may also notice a lump, bleeding or discharge

It is the 4th commonest cancer in women in India, though world wide it ranks 7th. It is a growth of abnormal malignant cells that begins in the ovaries or fallopian tubes. Malignant cancer cells in the ovaries can spread in two ways: directly to other organs in the pelvis and abdomen
