abstract

  • Reflecting the worldwide aging trend and close association of aging with cancer, geriatric oncology is now growing beyond its pioneer years. Nevertheless, geriatric oncology in the gynecologic field is in the beginning stage; indeed, there is no geriatric specialist who is trained in this particular field of gynecologic oncology. Therefore, we held the first workshop in geriatric gynecologic oncology. In this review, we summarize what we discussed at the workshop and provide evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic cancer in elderly individuals.
