Gynecology Cancer

A woman's reproductive system is prone to Gynecology cancer. There are many regions where cancer cells can develop easily. However, due to the menstrual cycle, the symptoms might go unnoticed.

What is Gynecology Cancer?

Gynecology cancer is a collective term used for cancer affecting the reproductive organs of women. It covers all the parts that are prone to cancer: uterus, cervix, ovaries, vulva, vagina.

Every type of cancer that comes under gynecology cancer has different symptoms and treatment methods.

Types of Cancer that comes under Gynecology Cancer

Gynecology cancer targets the reproductive organs. Therefore, it can affect any part of the pelvic region. It is classified into six types of cancer:

Uterine Cancer

One of the most common types of gynecology cancer is uterus cancer. It is of three types:

  • Endometrial cancer
  • Uterine sarcomas
  • Endometrial stromal tumors

Out of all these subtypes, Endometrial cancer is the most common as well as the most easily treatable type of cancer.

Some of the risk factors that increase the chances of having uterine cancer are obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and using estrogen without progesterone.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is another commonly found gynecology cancer. It is hard to detect until it reaches an advanced stage, where it becomes hard to cure.

Cervical cancer is responsible for most cancer-related deaths. The only way to detect it in an early stage is through regular cancer screening.

The major risk factor of cervical cancer is HPV (Human Papillomavirus) infection. PAP tests are required to detect the infection beforehand.

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is also a common type of gynecology cancer in women. It is of three types:

  • Epithelial ovarian cancer
  • Germ cell cancer
  • Stromal cell cancer

Out of the three subtypes of ovarian cancer, Epithelial ovarian cancer covers around 85% of ovarian cancer cases. If it has reached an advanced stage, it is likely to recur. Therefore, it is treated surgically or by chemotherapy.

Vulvar cancer

Women are rarely diagnosed with vulvar cancer. It targets external female genitalia and is easily detected at an early stage.

In contrast to its rarity, it is easily curable. Radical surgery works in most cases. The risk of having vulvar cancer increases with age.

Vaginal Cancer

This rarest form of gynecology cancer usually affects older women. It is detectable and easily curable just like vulvar cancer.

The risk of having vulvar cancer increases with age. HPV infection is another main culprit of vaginal cancer.

Gestational trophoblastic tumor

GTD is a group of pregnancy-related tumors. It is very rare and highly curable. Despite being rare, it is important that you get a diagnosis during pregnancy.

The most prominent cancer treatments are:
