What is Gynecologic Cancer?

 

Gynecologic cancer serves as a blanket term for cancerous growths that form in the vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, or the ovaries, and in total, gynecologic cancer affects close to 100,000 new patients each year. While older women are the most at risk, any woman can develop gynecologic cancer.

At Palo Verde Cancer Specialists, we can use radiation therapy, chemotherapy, surgery, or a combination of these methods to treat gynecologic cancer – but as with all forms of cancer, the best way to fight gynecologic cancer is through early detection and treatment.

 

Prevention & Early Detection

 

Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment are key in providing the best chance for beating gynecologic cancer. Every woman should make regular self-examinations and professional cancer screenings a part of her health routine, as this is the best way to catch cancer early. Women over 21 should receive regular pap smears as a preventive measure, and any woman who develops human papillomavirus should also receive regular screenings. It’s important to speak with your doctor about your personal risk for gynecologic cancer, as he or she can help you develop a preventive regimen that makes sense for your lifestyle.

 

Gynecologic Cancer Risk Factors & Statistics

 

Any woman may develop gynecologic cancer, but a number of factors can increase your risk:

  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) increases the risk of cervical cancer
  • A previous history of cancer
  • Uterine cancer is the most common form, followed by ovarian, cervical, vulvar, and vaginal cancer
  • 25,000 women will die from gynecologic cancer this year
