Gynaecological cancers refer to cancer of the female reproductive tract. This includes cancer of the uterus (womb), ovaries, cervix, vagina and vulva. Breast cancer is not included, and in Australia, breast cancer is not treated by gynaecological oncologists. Gynaecological cancers overall account for 9% of all reported cancers in women. The majority of gynaecological cancers are diagnosed in females aged 60 and over, however younger women can also be affected.
