What you need to know
Gynaecological cancer is the cancer of the female reproductive system that occur when abnormal cells grow out of control. The 5 types of gynaecological cancer are the following:
It begins in one or both ovaries, which are a pair of solid, oval-shaped organs that produce hormones and eggs.
It begins in the main body of the uterus, a hollow organ about the size and shape of an upside-down pear. The uterus is the place where the baby grows when a woman becomes pregnant.
It starts at the cervix which is the lower part of the uterus and has a cylindrical shape. Its upper lip is connected to the uterus, while the lower lip is connected to the vaginal cavity.
It begins in the vagina, a muscular tubular canal that extends from the cervix to the outer part of the female sex organs (vulva).
It starts in the vulva which is the outer part of the female reproductive system. It includes the opening of the vagina, the inner and outer labia (also called the labia minora and labia majora), the clitoris, and the labia (a soft, fatty mound of tissue located above the labia).
