Dr. Catherine Nyongesa, a distinguished clinical oncologist and the visionary founder and managing director of the Texas Cancer Center, has taken a moment to guide us through the diverse spectrum of gynecological cancers.
“Today, let us explore the various types of gynecological cancers. Raising awareness stands as the initial stride toward early detection and prevention!
Cervical Cancer: This is a malignancy originating in the cervix, the lower segment of the uterus.
Ovarian Cancer: A form of cancer that emerges in the ovaries, the vital reproductive organs in women.
Endometrial Cancer: This cancer takes root in the lining of the uterus.
Vulvar Cancer: A relatively uncommon cancer that manifests on the external surface of the genitalia.
Vaginal Cancer: Cancer that initiates within the tissues of the vaginal canal.
Fallopian Tube Cancer: A rare malignancy that impacts the fallopian tubes.
Throughout this month of heightened awareness, Dr. Catherine Nyongesa, in collaboration with like-minded organizations, is devoted to disseminating knowledge, extending support, and promoting regular check-ups. Together, we have the power to effect change!”
