What is Gynecological Carcinosarcoma?
Gynecological Carcinosarcoma (GCS) is a cancerous growth found in the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other parts of the body. This type of cancer is also called malignant mixed Müllerian tumor or MMMT. GCS contains two types of cells: carcinomatous and sarcomatous. GCS is rare. Fewer than 1,000 cases of GCS are diagnosed each year. Because carcinosarcoma is so rare, there have been no large clinical trials that focus on this disease to help identify and study effective treatments. You can read more about GCS here.
