Gynaecologic Cancers

There are five main types of cancer that affect a woman’s reproductive organs: Cervical, ovarian, endometrial, vaginal and vulvar. Together, these cancers are referred to as gynaecologic cancers. Each gynaecologic cancer is unique, with different signs and symptoms, different risk factors and different prevention strategies.

With the availability of Pap smears that screen for precancerous and cancerous changes of the cervix, cervical cancer is one of the world’s deadliest but most easily preventable forms of cancer.

Risk factors include:

  • HPV (human papilloma virus)
  • Having sex at an early age
  • Multiple sexual partners
  • Sexual partners who have multiple partners or who participate in high-risk sexual activities
  • Weakened immune system
  • Limited access to health care

Symptoms include:

Many times, early cervical cancer has no symptoms. However, the two most common symptoms of cervical cancer are vaginal discharge and abnormal bleeding.

Other symptoms that may occur include:

  • Bleeding or pain after intercourse
  • Vaginal bleeding between periods
  • Periods become heavier or last longer
  • Bleeding after menopause

Action Plan

There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval – but awareness levels of these cancers are very low in India. Every year in India lakhs of women die from gynaecological cancers. That’s far too many mothers, wives, daughters, partners and friends in our opinion, and at Apollo CBCC we’re determined to stop this. Part of our mission is to ensure that women and men are aware of what to look out for, because recognising gynaecological cancer symptoms can mean an earlier diagnosis, leading to a better outcome.

Educate yourself

Educating yourself is one of the best things you can do to help yourself and your loved ones. It is vital for you to be informed about the basics of cancer in order to get a high level of understanding about the disease.

Start a Conversation

The next step is to educate your loved ones about these deadly diseases. Tell them about the risk factors and symptoms because timely recognising symptoms can mean an earlier diagnosis, leading to a better outcome.

Attention to yourself

A woman plays many roles to make life better for others but often forgets to take care of herself. Being a female, you should take care of your body. Awareness, regular check-ups and screenings save lives.


If any of the gynaecologic cancer symptoms lasts for more than 2 weeks, please see a doctor.
