Gynecologic Cancer

ACCC and its partner programs are working together on numerous projects aimed at improving the quality of patient care and survival rates for all who are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer.

If detected early, gynecologic cancer—including cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar— can be easily treated. However, in its early stages, patients may experience a wide range of symptoms which can be easily mistaken for other conditions. Unfortunately, currently, the only type of gynecologic cancer with a screening test is cervical cancer.

For those with a family history of gynecologic cancers, genetic testing may be beneficial, depending on the type of cancer. Patients who have tested positive for human papillomavirus (HPV) are also at higher risk of developing gynecologic cancer.

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Addressing the Needs of Patients with Gynecologic Cancers

Aims of the initiative include identification and assessment of necessary components for the provision of high-quality multidisciplinary care delivery for patients with gynecologic cancers.

Ovarian Cancer

When identified and treated at an early stage, the five-year survival rate for patients with ovarian cancer is approximately 49 percent. Unfortunately, most ovarian cancers are not identified until an advanced stage.
