Types of treatment

All cases of cancer of the fallopian tubes can be treated. Treatments will depend on your age, the type and stage of the tumour, and what you want.

There are generally two types of treatment used for cancer of the fallopian tubes: surgery and chemotherapy.

Radiotherapy and hormonal therapy may sometimes be used.

Treatment given after the main treatment to increase the chances of a cure is called adjuvant therapy. Treatment given before the main treatment is called neoadjuvant treatment.

If you want to try complementary therapies, which are generally used in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment, it is important that you discuss this with your doctors and health professionals.

All these treatments are explained in more detail in the following sections.
