Gynaecological Cancer

Gynaecologic oncology is a branch of cancer that focuses on cancers of the female reproductive system. It begins in different locations within a woman’s pelvis (area below the stomach and in between the hip bones).

Cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer are all examples of ‘Gynaecological Cancers,’ a medical disorder in which cancer or tumor cells form in the reproductive organs of a woman’s body. There are various symptoms linked with Gynaecological malignancies; each cancer type has its own set of symptoms, and the only way to determine which one you have is to seek professional advice.

Gynaecological malignancies are one of the most common cancers in women around the world. Thousands of women are diagnosed with Gynaecological malignancies each year, so it’s critical to understand the many forms.


The following gynaecological malignancies are extremely common and afflict a high number of women each year: Each gynaecologic cancer is unique, with different signs & symptoms, risk factors and prevention strategies. All women are at risk for gynecologic cancers, and risk increases with age.
