Cancer that occurs in the female reproductive system is known as gynecologic cancer. Annually there are about 90,000 women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer in the U.S. alone. More than half of the gynecologic cancers diagnosed are cervical cancer according to estimates from the National Cancer Institute.
Types of gynecologic cancer:
Signs and symptoms for each gynecologic cancer are unique and vary by each type.
Risk factors for each gynecologic cancer are unique and vary by each type. All women are at risk for gynecologic cancers, and the risk increases with age. If gynecologic cancers are found early, treatments can be more effective.
