Gynecologic Cancers: Signs and Symptoms

Women with early cervical cancers and pre-cancers usually have no symptoms. Symptoms often do not begin until a pre-cancer becomes a true invasive cancer and grows into nearby tissue. When this happens, the most common symptoms are: Abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding after sex (vaginal intercourse), bleeding after menopause, bleeding and spotting between periods, and having longer or heavier (menstrual) periods than usual. Bleeding after douching, or after a pelvic exam is a common symptom of cervical cancer but not pre-cancer. An unusual discharge from the vagina − the discharge may contain some blood and may occur between your periods or after menopause; Pain during sex (vaginal intercourse).

Ovarian cancer may cause several signs and symptoms. The most common symptoms include

 Bloating

 Pelvic or abdominal pain

 Trouble eating or feeling full quickly

 Urinary symptoms such as urgency or frequency

These symptoms are also commonly caused by benign (non-cancerous) diseases and by cancers of other organs. If a woman has these symptoms more than 12 times a month, she should see her doctor, preferably a gynaecologist.

Others symptoms of ovarian cancer can include:

Fatigue, Upset stomach, Back pain, Pain during sex, Constipation, Menstrual changes, Abdominal swelling with weight loss

Endometrial cancer Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms may include vaginal bleeding, such as a change in their periods or bleeding between periods or after menopause. This symptom can also occur with some non-cancerous conditions, but it is important to have a test. If you have gone through menopause already, it’s especially important to report any vaginal bleeding, spotting, or abnormal discharge to your doctor.

Pain in the pelvis, feeling a mass, and losing weight without trying can also be symptoms of endometrial cancer.

Vaginal cancer Signs and Symptoms

The may include

  Abnormal vaginal bleeding (often after intercourse)

  Abnormal vaginal discharge

  A mass that can be felt
