Once diagnosed, gynecological cancer can be treated in various ways. Whether you have been newly diagnosed, or have been undergoing treatment for a while, it is normal to be confused and have a lot of questions. An important first step is to understand your disease better.

Types of gynecological cancers
Cervical Cancer
This type of cancer begins in a woman’s cervix – which is the narrow, lower end of the uterus or womb.

Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the ovaries, related areas of the fallopian tubes, and the peritoneum – which is the tissue that lines the abdominal wall and covers most of the organs in the abdomen.

Endometrial or Uterine Cancer
Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus – which is the hollow, pear-shaped pelvic organ responsible for foetal development.

Vaginal and Vulvar Cancer
Vaginal cancer begins in the vagina, which is the hollow and tube-like channel between the bottom of the uterus and the exterior of the body.
