Gynecologic cancers
Bookmark and Share
Gynecologic cancers are cancers that start in a woman’s reproductive organs. The five main types are: cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal and vulvar cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year more than 80,000 women in the U.S. are told they have a gynecologic cancer, and more than 25,000 women die from these diseases. September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to educate women about screening and prevention.

Dr. Jamie Bakkum-Gamez, a gynecologic surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will cover diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gynecologic cancers. Also on the program, Kate Zeratsky, a dietician at Mayo Clinic, will discuss detox diets. And Dr. Arya Mohabbat, the practice chair of Mayo Clinic’s Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Clinic, will talk about improving care for fibromyalgia patients.
