Gynaecological cancer refers to cancers arising from the female reproductive organs.
There are five main types of gynaecological cancer: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar.
Each gynaecological cancer is unique and differs in terms of their sign & symptoms, risk factors and prevention strategies. The risks for gynaecological cancers for women increases with age. Early detection and onset of treatment are keys to overcome cancer, as with most other types of cancer. For signs & symptoms of each type of gynaecological cancer: click here.
