Types of Gynecologic Cancer
Gynecologic cancer isn’t like many other forms of cancer in that it doesn’t refer to a specific condition. Rather, gynecologic cancer is a blanket term that encompasses any cancerous growth that forms in the female reproductive system. The most common types of gynecologic cancer include:
- Vulvar Cancer
- Vaginal Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Cervical Cancer
Stages of Gynecologic Cancer
Because gynecologic cancer encompasses so many specific conditions, there is no single, unified staging system. Instead, each specific subcondition has its own unique metrics and staging system. That said, most gynecologic cancers use the four-stage, TNM method to assess their severity. This method examines three key variables:
- Tumor: The size of the primary tumor
- Node: The number of nearby lymph nodes the cancer has reached
- Metastasis: The extent to which the cancer has spread to distant parts of the body
Your cancer doctor will assess these three variables holistically to determine the overall stage of the cancer. Generally, the higher the stage of the cancer, the more widespread and serious the condition. But no matter what stage your gynecologic cancer, the team at Pasadena CyberKnife is committed to helping you beat it.
