Female reproductive system cancers include ovarian, fallopian tube, uterine and endometrial, vaginal, vulvar and cervical. Often difficult to diagnose because symptoms can be confused with multiple health conditions, many gynecologic cancers may spread to other parts of the body before being detected. Attention to abnormal bleeding, as well as screening tests such as the PAP smear, and regular gynecologic exams can lead to early detection and effective treatment.
