Expert care for female reproductive and genital cancers

Gynecologic cancer is cancer that affects a woman’s reproductive organs, including the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina and vulva. A woman’s risk of developing any of these cancers increases with age.

 

Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center oncologists treat gynecologic cancers with personalized treatment plans based on several factors. These include the type of cancer a woman has, the stage of the cancer and how far it may have spread, her medical history and overall health, and whether she plans to become pregnant.
