It’s an anxious time when you’ve heard the news that you might have cancer. You have lots of questions and you don’t always know where to find the answers. Please click on one of the links below to find out more about a specific type of cancer and what you can expect in terms of treatment.
Cervical cancer, or cancer of the cervix, is primarily caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and isn’t common in Australia. There are usually no symptoms in early stages, which makes it hard to detect. For that reason, it is recommended to have regular Cervical Screening Tests.
Endometrial cancer is also called uterine cancer because it affects the lining of the uterus or womb. It’s the most common cancer of the female reproductive system and is often discovered at an early stage, which means most women are cured.
Ovarian cancer is a cancer that grows in the ovaries, the small organs that produce eggs and female hormones. The risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is higher for some women due to a particular gene, the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation.
Risk reducing surgery called risk reducing bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (rrBSO) is an option for women carrying this particular gene.
