Fallopian tube cancer, also called tubal cancer, builds up in the fallopian tubes which connect the uterus and the ovaries. Though it is very unusual and contributes only 1 to 2 percent of all gynecologic cancers, yet fallopian tube pain is unbearably high and it is extremely dangerous if not treated on time. The fallopian tubes are a couple of thin tubes which assist the egg to travel from the ovaries to the uterus with tiny hair-like projection called cilia which line the inside of the tubes.
The common uterine cancer symptoms are vaginal discharge, vaginal bleeding and/or abdominal pain. If the discharge is not corrected, it may indicate the presence of cancer. Blocked fallopian tubes also cause the pelvic pain which is sometimes associated with fallopian tube cancer.
Before starting the treatment for fallopian tube cancer, one must consult a gynecologist. The gynecologist considers the patient's medical history, age, stage of disease, current health etc. The goal of treatment should be to destroy the cancer completely with the least side effects. A gynecologist or an oncologist who has got specialization treats the blocked fallopian tubes.
