Every day in Australia around 48 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological or breast cancer.
Cancer is a disease of the body's building blocks - or cells.
Cancer happens when genes become damaged and the cells begin to grow abnormally and out of control. Cancer isn't one single disease, but a range of diseases in which abnormal cells multiply and spread out of control affecting a range of body organs.
Women dealing with gynaecological cancers often have specific needs and questions about their diagnosis and treatment options.
Please find further information about types of women’s cancer and treatments below:
If you have questions at all about your own experience, please call Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20.
To find out about other types of cancer head to the Cancer Council website.
