Gynecological cancer is any form of cancer that takes place in the female reproductive system. The most common is cervical cancer. Cervical cancer begins in the cells lining the cervix, which connects the uterus to the vagina.
There are two types of cervical cancer, squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinomas. Squamous cell carcinomas are the most common, with the American Cancer Society reporting 90% of cervical cancer diagnosis. These typically begin in the transformation zone, which is located where the exocervix joins the endocervix.
