Cancer develops in the cervix. This cancer was once one of the most common cancers affecting women. With routine screenings, including pap tests, doctors can detect pre-cancerous polyps and cervical cancer early which can help improve treatment outcomes.
Cancer cells are found in the ovaries. This type of cancer is more common in older women, however rates of ovarian cancer have been on the decline for the last 20 years. The decrease in the use of hormone replacement therapies in post-menopausal women may contribute to this decline as well as improvements in diagnostic tests and improvements in treatments.
Uterine cancer begins in the uterus and endometrial cancer begins in the cells that form the lining of the uterus. Uterine cancer is the most common gynecological cancer. More than 63,000 cases of uterine cancer are diagnosed each year.
This rare gynecological cancer begins in the cells that line the surface of the vagina.
