Preventive oncology refers to the branch of medicine and public health that emphasizes cancer prevention. It mainly focuses on reducing the risk of cancer by identifying risk factors, taking measures to minimize the risk, and promoting early detection and intervention. One of the significant reasons for the rising rates of illness and death among women are cancers affecting the genital tract. These types of cancers can lead to increased mortality and morbidity in women. Women are most prone to cervix cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and ovarian cancer.
Beyond the more common gynecological malignancies, there exist lesser-known cancers affecting the vulva, vagina, and fallopian tubes.
Silvernest Clinic is dedicated to the proactive approach of preventing malignancies in women, recognizing the significance of timely intervention. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Shweta Wazir, we prioritize empowering women with lifestyle choices that can significantly reduce the risk of cancer. From personalized diet and exercise plans to promoting safe sex practices and advocating against harmful substances like tobacco, our mission is to foster a better quality of life while thwarting cancer at its earliest stages.
To protect against HPV-related diseases like genital warts and cervical cancer, healthcare providers offer guidance and administer the HPV vaccination to adolescent girls and women up to 45 years of age for primary prevention.

Cervical cancer holds the unfortunate distinction of being the most prevalent cancer among women, also accounting for the highest number of cancer-related deaths in the female population.
The following tests diagnose cervical cancer:
-Pap Smear: It is recommended for all sexually active women above the age 21 and is done every 3 years up to the age 65.
- VIA: It involves the application of a 5% acetic acid solution to the cervix to identify any abnormal areas. If any such areas are detected, further evaluation and investigation is done.
-HPV: Infection of the cervix with the Human Papilloma virus causes cervical cancer. This test is done above 30 years of age every 5 years.
Cervical cancer screening tests are non-invasive, painless procedures that do not necessitate anesthesia and are beneficial in ensuring early detection and proactive healthcare management.
Colposcopy examination is recommended for females who have abnormal screening test results, as well as those experiencing persistent white discharge or irregular vaginal bleeding or have an unhealthy cervix.
Treatment of precancerous lesions of the cervix is done by “Cryo Therapy” & LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excisional Procedure) to hault the progression of the disease so that the development of Frank malignancy can be prevented. To ensure early detection of uterine and ovarian cancers, women aged 40 and above undergo Trans Vaginal Sonography (TVS) of the pelvis. This screening procedure aims to identify any indications of increased endometrial thickness and the presence of ovarian cysts or tumors, allowing for timely intervention management.
