Fallopian Tube Cancer

Common Name(s)

Fallopian Tube Cancer

Fallopian tube cancer is a very rare form of cancer with only 1,500 to 2,000 cases reported each year in the United States. However, a number of cancers start in other parts of the body and spread to the fallopian tubes, called secondary fallopian tube cancers. Some symptoms include abnormal vaginal bleeding, abnormal vaginal discharge, abdominal pain, and feeling a mass in the abdomen (belly) or pelvis. A female pelvic exam can assist in the diagnosis of this condition by evaluating the size and shape of the uterus, vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder and rectum. A blood test can also be performed to check the levels of a certain protein called CA125, which may be used to diagnose fallopian tube cancer. Treatment usually involves surgery and chemotherapy, depending on age, desire to have children, and the type and stage of the tumor.
