Dr. Sumit Shah - Uterine Cancer Surgeon in Pune

What is Uterine Cancer?

Uterine cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the uterus. The uterus is the round, pear-shaped pelvic organ where fetal growth occurs.

Uterine cancer starts in the layer of cells that form the lining of the uterus.

Uterine cancer is usually identified at an early stage because it often creates unusual vaginal bleeding. If uterine cancer is caught early, removing the uterus surgically, usually cures uterine cancer. Renowned oncologist in Pune Dr. Sumit Shah provides Uterine Cancer Treatment in Pune at Prolife Cancer Centre which is the best cancer hospital in Pune.

Types of Uterine Cancer

  • Endometrial adenocarcinoma. The most common type of uterine cancer begins in the glands of the endometrium.
  • Adenosquamous carcinoma. Comprising about 10 % of uterine cancers, adenosquamous carcinoma contains two types of cells: squamous cells and gland-like cells.
  • Papillary serous carcinoma. Aggressive cancer tends to return even when detected early. It represents 5% of uterine cancers.
  • Uterine sarcoma. A different type of cancer that occurs in the uterine tissue wall. It accounts for 5% of uterine cancer cases and grows more immediately than endometrial cancer.

Uterine Cancer Risk Factors

  • Age. Uterine cancer most usually happens in women above 50.
  • Obesity. Fatty tissue in women who are overweight creates additional estrogen, a sex hormone that can raise the risk of uterine cancer.
  • Race. White women are more likely to increase uterine cancer than women of other races/ethnicities.
  • Genetics. Uterine cancer may run in families where colon cancer is genetic. Women in families with Lynch sign also called hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, have a larger risk of uterine cancer.
  • Diabetes. Women may have an enhanced chance of uterine cancer if they have diabetes, which is often linked with obesity.
  • Diet/nutrition. Women who have foods large in animal fat may have an enhanced risk of uterine cancer.

What are the Symptoms of Uterine Cancer?

Many people with Uterine cancer can have blood in their urine, but no discomfort while urinating. Some symptoms might indicate Uterine cancer like weakness, weight loss, and bone tenderness, and these can indicate more difficult diseases.

You should pay particular attention to the following signs:
  • Blood in the urine
  • Painful urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Urgent urination

  • Pain in the pelvic area

    How can it be diagnosed?

    If your doctor finds something different in screening or you have any of the signs of Uterine cancer, further tests will be required to diagnose the condition.
    • Biopsy: a biopsy in which your surgeon inserts a small instrument into your urethra and takes a little sample of tissue from your Uterine to test for cancer.
    • Blood Tests: This test measures the various kinds of cells in your blood. It can show if you have anemia. Some people with Uterine cancer become weak because the tumor has been bleeding.
    • Imaging: Imaging tests use x-rays, magnetic fields, sound waves, or radioactive substances produce pictures of the inside of your body. Imaging tests allow your surgeon to check the structures of your urinary tract.  Imaging experiments might be taken for many purposes, such as:

    Stages of Uterine Cancer

    Your surgeon can rate Uterine cancer with a staging system that goes from stages 0 to 4 to recognize how far the cancer has grown. The stages of Uterine cancer mean the following:
    • Stage I: Cancer that is restricted to the uterus
    • Stage II: Cancer that has grown to the cervix
    • Stage III: Cancer that has expanded to the vagina, ovaries, and/or lymph nodes
    • Stage IV: Cancer that has developed to the urinary Uterine, rectum, or organs located far from the uterus, such as the lungs or bones

    Treatment

    Surgeons can treat Uterine Cancer with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and drugs. The treatment you get will depend on:

    • Which type of tumor you have and how many there are
    • Whether it’s harmful
    • If it has expanded to different sections of your body

    Surgery

    Treatment for Uterine cancer normally includes an operation to exclude the uterus, as well as to remove the Fallopian tubes and ovaries. A hysterectomy makes it difficult for you to become pregnant in the future. Also, once your ovaries are removed, you’ll experience menopause, if you haven’t already.

    During surgery, your doctor will also examine the areas around your uterus to look for clues that cancer has developed. Your doctor may also remove lymph nodes for testing. This helps determine your cancer’s stage.

     

    Radiation

    This method involves using high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. It’s a lot like getting an X-ray only much more effective. It doesn’t harm. You might require to get radiation 5 days a week for several weeks.

    Radiation therapy can involve:

    • Radiation from a machine outside your body. During outer beam radiation, you lie on a table while a device delivers radiation to particular locations on your body.
    • Radiation placed inside your body. Internal radiation involves putting radiation-filled equipment, such as tiny seeds, wires, or a cylinder, inside your vagina for the short-term.

    Chemotherapy

     Your doctor will give you chemo through an IV. That means the medicine travels through your bloodstream to other portions of your body. It can destroy cancer cells that may have grown beyond your Uterine.

    Targeted therapy

     It uses drugs that hit certain genes on tumor cells to destroy cancer. This treatment limits damage to the healthy cells in your body, which can occur with radiation or chemotherapy.

    Your surgeon will decide which drug is best for you by examining cells from your tumor first.

    After Treatment: Reconstruction and Rehabilitation

    Healing from Surgery

    Most people who have Uterine cancer surgery heal without any problems. A fewer number of patients may have a slower recovery and need to wait for a little more.

    A surgeon will give you guidance on how to take care of yourself, including your surgery, bathing, driving, and sexual activity. There will be information about yourself:

    • Diet
    • Exercise
    • Pain medicine

    After Treatment, you will be given a Daily Goals Checklist. Use that checklist to understand how you are doing every day.

    Your Daily Goals Checklist

    While you are in the hospital, you will have regular aims to help you recover. These aims include:

    • Getting out of bed and being active
    • Eating and drinking
    •  Controlling your pain

    Follow-up appointments

    After you’ve completed your treatments for Uterine cancer, follow-up care is very essential. Routine checkups can help find any changes in your health, and if cancer comes back (or “recurs”), it can be treated as soon as possible.

    If your treatment has finished, follow-up appointments maybe every 3−6 months for the first couple of years and 6−12 months for the following 3 years.

    Your doctor may check your CEA level before you begin treatment and again after treatment to understand if it has come down.

    Doctors recommend CT scans of the chest & abdomen a daily schedule for 3 years in people who are at high risk for recurrence.

    Consulted Dr. Sumit Shah for Cancer of Sigmoid Colon. We consulted our family physician Dr. Murtaza Saifee as my mother was complaining of abdomen pain and bleeding in her stools. Dr. Saifee sent us for further investigations. After doing her PET Scan and Colonoscopy she was diagnosed with Carcinoma of Sigmoid Colon. Dr. Saifee then referred us to Dr. Sumit Shah at Prolife Cancer Centre and Research Institute, Pune for the further treatment. Dr. Shahs expertise and knowledge in the cancer field gave us the confidence to proceed further. Dr. Sumit Shah did her surgery laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy for sigmoid colon cancer and her surgery went well. Her recovery was also quite stable and quicker than we had imagined. Also it was early stage cancer so she didn’t require any chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The entire staff at Prolife Cancer Centre took great care of her and supported her in this journey. Thankyou to Dr. Shah and his team for all that they've done for her fast recovery.

    We visited a lot of hospitals and doctors for my father's treatment but continuously failed with his treatment. That's when we came across Dr. Sumit Shah through a through Google search. Visiting Dr. Shah at Prolife Centre and Research Institute was a blessing to us. Dr. Shah's expertise in this field and positive outlook towards the patient gave us confidence in the treatment of my fathers health. My father underwent the Whipple Surgery under Dr. Shah. The surgery was successful and since then his recovery has been smooth. My father's follow up has been regular and the entire staff takes good care of his health. We sincerely express our gratitude to Dr. Shah and the entire team at Prolife Cancer Centre and Research Institute for taking care of my father and helping us out in the challenging journey. Thankyou so much.

    Visited for pancreatic cancer My father was complaining of stomach ache in April of this year so we took him to a general physician but the pain did not subside. Then we went to an Gastroenterologist Dr. Lalit Shimpi. He investigated further. He told us to do an endoscopy and thats when we were told that he was suffering from Pancreatic Cancer. We also consulted Dr Varun Khandagale , gastroenterologist he also suggested the same. Coming from a small village Takleyali of Taluka Shirur, dist Ahamadnagar.Dr. Shimpi referred us to Dr. Sumit Shah and Prolife Cancer Centre and Research Institute, Gultekdi, Pune. We met Dr. Shah and he recommended us that we go for surgery as its the best fit for him. My father immediately underwent surgery for Carcinoma Pancreas which was done by Dr. Shah himself. Now, my father is undergoing chemotherapy at Prolife Cancer Centre and Research Institute, Gultekdi, Pune under guidance of Dr minish jain and dr shah. we continue to experience the same high level of care. We are confident that he is in the best possible hands as he fights this battle. I cannot thank Dr. Shah and the entire team enough for their expertise, professionalism, and genuine concern for their patients. Thank you all staff and doctors at prolife

    My brother had pain around his mouth so we consulted our family doctor. We were shocked to know that he was diagnosed with mouth Cancer after investigating further. Post diagnosis we were looking for an experienced oncologist in Pune and that's when our family doctor recommended that we come see Dr. Sumit Shah and talk about the further treatment and management. Our first impression on coming to Profile Cancer Centre and Research institute was quite good. We were all on edge on the day of our first consultation but Dr. Shah was very radiant and confident. He explained everything to us in detail and his positive attitude regarding the health of my brother pushed us to get him treated here.

    My wife had difficulty in swallowing a year back so I took the treatment of our family doctor. Her complaints were on and off but never went away. That's when our doctor investigated further and recommended us to Dr. Sumit Shah at Prolife Cancer Centre, Pune. The day we first came to meet Dr. Shah we were very scared and worried about her condition but Dr. Shah provided us the moral boost and explained to us the step by step treatment and the duration. I must say talking to Dr. Shah reduced our worries to tenfold. My wife has nodule in thyroid . She underwent surgery at prolife. Here recovery was very smooth with no change in voice . She started eating in the evening We are very happy and content to have come to him for the treatment. His patient connection and the positive attitude was a relief to me. The staff here was very cooperative and supportive. We are usually scared to go to a hospital but coming here and seeing the infrastructure and the hygiene of this hospital was a total relief to us. Everyone was so attentive and patient with us and I'm thankful to Dr. Shah and his team for taking such good care of my wife. I really appreciate the team of Prolife Centre and recommend every patient to not ignore their symptoms and directly contact Dr. Shah. Thank you so much.
