Normally cells devide to produce more cells only when the organ needs them. Cancer occurs when cells keep dividing and forming more cells without control. Cancer is treated with surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy. We are working in collaboration with Professor Alex Crandon, Gynaecological Oncologist, who will review and perform surgery either at St Vincents Hospital in Toowoomba or Brisbane Private Hospital on Wickham Terrace in Brisbane.
