What Is Fallopian Tube Cancer? Understand Your Disease

Fallopian tube cancer, also acknowledged as tubal cancer, is very rare and accounts for only 1 to 2 percent of all gynecologic cancers. It is more common for cancer to metastasize (spread) from other parts of the body, such as the ovaries or uterine, than for cancer to originate in one or both the fallopian tubes.

The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the uterus. It is part of the female reproductive system, which is responsible for producing and fertilizing eggs, carrying a baby, and giving birth. Any tumorous growth blocking the fallopian tubes can prevent an egg from reaching the uterus, and sperm from reaching an egg. As a result, a woman can have an increased risk of a tubal pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy.

Fallopian Tube Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are several different types of fallopian tube cancer:

Papillary serous adenocarcinomas

Over 95 percent of fallopian tube cancers are papillary serous adenocarcinomas. This cancer begins from the cells lining the fallopian tubes.

Primary fallopian tube cancer

This cancer is uncommon, representing about 1 percent of all gynecologic cancers.

Sarcomas (leiomyosarcomas)

Occasionally, tumors called sarcomas or leiomyosarcomas may develop in the smooth muscle of the tubes.

Transitional cell carcinomas

This rare tumor begins in other cells that line the fallopian tubes.

Fallopian Tube Cancer Symptoms

Signs of fallopian tube cancer may resemble those of other gynecological problems. Common symptoms may include:

  • Menstrual irregularities or heavy vaginal bleeding, especially after menopause
  • Vaginal discharge that is clear, white, or pinkish
  • Abdominal pain or a feeling of intense pressure in the abdomen
  • An urgency or frequency to urinate
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
  • A pelvic mass during the time of diagnosis
  • Pelvic pain

Women who experience any of these symptoms every day for more than a few weeks should consult their primary care doctor or gynecologist immediately.

Fallopian Tube Cancer Risks Factors and Prevention

Doctors do not know the exact reason fallopian tube cancer happens. However, a woman may have a higher chance of having it due to:

  • Age. Tubal carcinoma is more common in women between 50 and 60 years old.
  • Gene mutations: BRCA gene mutations, particularly BRCA1, increase the chances of some gynecologic cancers.
  • Certain conditions. Lynch syndrome increases a woman’s risk of cancers in the fallopian tube, uterine, and ovaries.
  • Family history. Having a close relative (mother, sister, daughter) with ovarian or breast cancer also raises fallopian tube cancer risks.

Research shows that pregnancy, breastfeeding, and taking birth control pills may reduce a woman’s risk of developing fallopian tube cancer. Further, women who have had a hysterectomy or a tubal ligation may have a 96% lower risk of developing fallopian tube cancer. It is important, however, for women to consult their doctors before considering preventive surgery. Tubal ligation and hysterectomy are permanent birth control solutions, so it is crucial to understand their risks and side effects compared to the risk of developing fallopian tube cancer.

Detection and Diagnosis

Your doctor may perform several tests to make an accurate diagnosis of the condition. First, he or she will review any symptoms you may be experiencing, followed by a complete analysis of your medical history and a physical exam. Other diagnostic tests for fallopian tube cancer include pelvic exams, CT scans, MRI scans, and ultrasounds. A CA125 test is also essential, which checks the levels of a blood protein known as CA125, a tumor marker for gynecological disorders.
