Gynecologic Cancer Awareness

If your doctor says that you have ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancers, ask to be referred to a gynecologic oncologist—a doctor who was trained to treat cancers of a woman’s reproductive system. Gynecologic oncologists can perform surgery on and give chemotherapy (medicine) to women with ovarian cancer. Your doctor can work with you to create a treatment plan.

What Are the Symptoms?

These could be symptoms of a gynecologic cancer—

    • Pelvic pain or pressure that doesn’t go away, and you don’t know why.
  • Feeling too full, too fast, even when you eat just a little.
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding, like having longer or heavier periods than what’s normal for you, or bleeding after you’ve gone through menopause.
  • It is important to pay attention to your body and know what is normal for you, so you can recognize the symptoms of gynecologic cancer. If you notice anything unusual and it goes on for two weeks or longer, see a doctor.



    How Can I Lower My Risk?

    You can lower your risk for some gynecologic cancers with a vaccine and screening tests.
