Women’s Health & Gynaecology
Gynaecology is the study of functions and conditions specific to women’s health.
From routine cervical smears to diagnostic tests and minimal-access procedures, we offer gynaecology and women’s health services at Sevenoaks Medical Centre. Conditions we cover include:
- Fibroids – an overgrowth of the womb’s muscle
- Endometriosis – a condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb is found outside it
- Endometrial cancer – a malignant growth in the lining of the womb
- Abnormally-shaped wombs, which can cause miscarriages
- Polyps – small skin tags
- Ovarian cysts
- Ovarian cancer
- Abnormal cervical smears
- Menopause Clinic
GYNAECOLOGY PROCEDURES AND TREATMENTS WE PROVIDE
As well as dealing with general gynaecological problems, the Sevenoaks Medical Centre gynaecology facility offers a wide range of diagnostic services. There are some scans, tests and treatments that aren’t available at Sevenoaks Medical Centre. However, if you need additional care, you can choose to be treated at KIMS Hospital, Kent’s largest independent hospital.
In addition to consultations and examinations, we also provide the following women’s health services:
CERVICAL SMEAR TESTS
Cervical smear tests, or cervical screenings are tests, which help in the prevention of cervical cancer by detecting and removing abnormal cells from the cervix early.
This procedure involves a small brush being used to collect cells from the cervix. The cell sample is then sent off to a laboratory for analysis. The results then influence any further treatment if necessary.
A coil implant is a form of contraception, which is inserted into the womb. The T-shaped plastic and copper device stops sperm and eggs surviving in the womb and is up to 99% effective. This form of contraception comes in a number of different varieties with the device containing varying amounts of copper. This form of contraception can last for five to ten years.
