About gynecologic cancer
Gynecologic cancer is cancer of a woman’s reproductive system. There are five main types—uterine, ovarian, cervical, vulvar, and vaginal. It occurs in about 1 in 20 women in the United States.
We have good news about gynecologic cancer though. The survival rate has increased over the past 25 years. This is because women now have cancer screening more often; lives are saved. That is Harrison’s aim for you and your family.
