AOI in Coimbatore gives a new lease of life to 50-year-old Post-Menopausal Female with Carcinoma Vagina

American Oncology Institute (AOI) Coimbatore saved a 50-year-old female suffering from post-menopausal bleeding and vaginal discharge. The patient was diagnosed with carcinoma vagina, classified as clinical stage FIGO II. Despite being a known diabetic, her medical history included no significant pain, and she had near-normal bowel and bladder habits.

Dr C Anbu, Radiation Oncologist, American Oncology Institute, Coimbatore emphasized, "Carcinoma Vagina is a rare gynaecological malignancy. It accounts for less than 3% of all gynaecological malignancies. Squamous cell carcinoma accounts for almost 80% of vaginal cancer followed by adenocarcinoma. Like carcinoma cervix, infection with high-risk human papilloma virus infection (HPV type 16, 18) seems to be a major risk factor for development of vaginal cancer. In view of close proximity of vagina to structures like rectum bladder, radiation therapy helps in organ preservation when compared to surgery along with good tumor control and survival rates. Our patient's safety and well-being were paramount throughout the treatment process. By employing advanced techniques and delivering a radiation dose of 50.4 Gy in 28 fractions, we aimed to achieve the best possible outcomes with minimal side effects."
