What Women Need to Know About Gynecologic Cancers

Fayetteville, Ga. (Sept. 8, 2022) – The American Sexual Health Association estimates that 98,000 women will be diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer this year. Mitzie-Ann Davis, M.D., MPH, FACOG, a gynecologic oncologist and surgeon at Piedmont Fayette Hospital, knows the best way to reduce that alarming statistic is by bringing awareness to gynecologic cancers and their risk factors.

“Far too often, women don’t know what the risk factors or symptoms are for diseases such as cervical cancer or ovarian cancer,” said Dr. Davis. “This prevents them from catching the disease early, which in turn makes the disease harder to treat.”

Dr. Davis, a board-certified gynecologic oncologist, continually looks for ways to improve as both a surgeon and a physician, staying abreast with the latest advances in medicine. She believes that genetic testing is one resource that could be used more often. She also keeps abreast of clinical trials taking place at Piedmont.

Dr. Davis will discuss symptoms, risk factors and treatments for all gynecologic cancers at a virtual lunch and learn. The event; Login, Lunch, and Learn: What Every Woman Needs to Know, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 12 to 1 p.m. If you are interested in attending this free event, email PFHRSVP@piedmont.org to receive the log-in for the lunch and learn.

“Over 33,000 women die of a gynecologic cancer each year,” said Dr. Davis. “The earlier that cancer can be diagnosed and treated, the better the chance for a successful treatment. We can find it earlier if our patients know what to look for.”
