Gynecologic cancers include cancers of the uterus, cervix, ovaries, vagina, vulva, and endometrium (the lining of the uterus). Depending on their location and severity, these cancers may be treated with chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. In some times, a combination of treatment approaches is used.
