There are five gynaecological cancers womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval. Each year in the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed with a form of gynaecological cancer, that’s 58 women every day.
Many of the early symptoms can often be missed, meaning a late diagnosis and a delay in treatment. The treatment of all cancers has a much greater chance of success if it is discovered as early as possible.
