Female Reproductive Cancer
The female reproductive system has several functions. It produces the hormones and egg cells necessary for reproduction, transports them to where they can be fertilized, and nurtures them after conception. If an egg cell isn’t fertilized, the reproductive system eliminates it through menstruation.
Female reproductive cancers are the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells in the reproductive organs; the cervix, uterus, ovaries, vulva and vagina. Cancer of the uterine lining, also known as endometrial carcinoma, is the most common female reproductive cancer.
All women are at risk for reproductive cancers, and that risk increases with age.
