Gynecologic Cancer

What Is Gynecologic Cancer?

Five main types of cancer affect a woman’s reproductive organs: cervical, ovarian,uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. As a group, they are referred to as gynecologic cancers. Each gynecologic cancer is unique, with different signs, symptoms, and risk factors (things that may increase your chance of getting cancer).

All women are at risk for gynecologic cancers, and risk increases with age. You can lower your risk for some of these cancers. When gynecologic cancers are found early, treatment works best.
