Gynaecological cancers are named according to the organ or part of the body where they first develop – that is, the ovary, uterus, cervix, vagina or vulva.

In Australia, one in 23 women will develop a gynaecological cancer at sometime in her lifetime. Uterine/endometrial cancer is the most prevalent form, followed by ovarian, cervical, vulval & vaginal.
