Gynecologic Cancer

A cancer that starts in a woman’s reproductive organs is called gynecologic cancer. These can include cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancers. Fallopian tube cancer is considered very rare.

Cervical cancer is the only GYN cancer where screenings can detect it early and lead to more effective treatment. There are no simple or reliable screenings for other forms of GYN cancer, which makes recognizing the warning signs and reducing risks of utmost importance.
