Receiving a diagnosis can be intimidating, but that is why we will be with you throughout this journey. In fact, diagnosing the cancer makes you just one step closer to fighting and beating the cancer.
Cervical cancer can occur in any woman who is sexually active. In most cases, a PAP test will show any pre-malignant changes, allowing for early detection and treatment.
Endometrial cancer starts in the endometrium, the tissue that lines the uterus. It is the most common type of uterine cancer.
This type of cancer is detected along the walls of the fallopian tube, the connector between the ovary and the uterus. It is managed and treated much the same as ovarian cancer.
Research indicates that ovarian cancer is a silent disease. Every year there are about 22,000 new cases of ovary cancer diagnosed in the United States.
Usually occurring after menopause, uterine cancer can be treated with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy or surgery.
Usually diagnosed in older women, vulvar cancer can appear in younger women as well. Approximately 4,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the U.S.
