Facts About Gynecologic Cancers

Gynecologic cancers include malignancies of the female genital tract involving the vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. According to the American Cancer Society, 91,730 women in 2013 will be diagnosed with some form of gynecologic cancer. Cancers of the uterus, cervix and ovary are most common. They account for 84,140 new cases each year. Widespread screening with the Pap test has allowed doctors to find pre-cancerous changes in the cervix and vagina. This has helped catch some invasive cancers early.
