Reproductive System Cancers

Learn about cancers that effect a women’s reproductive system, including the ovaries, uterus, cervix, and vagina. If you have symptoms of one of these conditions, your primary care doctor will most likely refer you to an oncologist or a gynecologist who specializes in women’s cancers. Your primary care physician will help coordinate care with your cancer treatment team.
