Through a combination of vaccines, regular screenings and improved technology, the rates for some forms of gynecological cancer have decreased over the years.

Gynecological cancers strike the female genital and reproductive tract. The most common forms are uterine, ovarian, fallopian-tube and cervical cancers, followed by vaginal and vulvar cancers.
