Therapies with strong evidence bases have been more extensively studied than treatments with minimal evidence supporting their use in the clinical routine (weakly supported treatments, such as endometrial ablation.) Therapies in which no clear evidence exists for their benefits (such as GnRH analog therapy and tamoxifen) are less frequently recommended, possibly due to poorer compliance with guidelines or the side effects of these therapies.
Smoking is the single greatest cause of [cervical cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/cervical-cancer) and the primary cause of cervical cancer in women over 40 years. The primary cause of other gynecologic cancers, including endometrial cancers, fallopian tube cancer, uterine sarcomasia, and vulvar cancer is cigarette smoking.
There have been an increasing number of patients diagnosed with gynecologic cancers in the United States, driven by increasing longevity and increasing use of screening tests.
About 7 to 8 million women and girls in the US are diagnosed with gynecologic cancers annually. Although the most common cancers among both women and girls occur in young adulthood, gynecologic cancers are not part of the routine cancer screening recommended by the US Preventive Service Task Force.
For those women with advanced disease, a cure is unlikely. However, for the small number of women who live long enough for cure, this goal is achievable.
Many women with pelvic, abdominal, or vaginal masses have associated symptoms. A systematic, comprehensive approach helps identify ovarian cancer or adenocarcinoma. The patient and her healthcare provider must be aware of these symptoms and use this information in planning the next steps.
The sexual and menopausal resources frequently provided in outpatient settings to patients in gynecological oncology can be viewed through a lens of gender stereotypes. In practice, the messages conveyed to the patient can often lead to unintended medical consequences for both patients, especially women; and for clinicians, such as decreased satisfaction of the patient and concern for patient risk. The present study offers a systematic analysis to inform clinicians and women considering sexual and menopausal resources.
There is a dearth of studies for MWHS, and almost no studies on the effect of any clinical trials on sexual health. This may be due to the difficulty of conducting research on sexual health. The quality of evidence regarding oral hormonal interventions is weak. Findings from a recent study suggest there may be a dearth of evidence to support the use of MWHS in menopausal women with sexual health problems.
Although the proportion of colorectal or [breast cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/breast-cancer)s in family members has been described many times, this is the first study to compare the proportions between those with a family history and those without a family history of gynecological cancers. Although the data reflect a higher proportion of family members with gynecological cancers (i.e., 17.6%) compared with the reported population rate (9.3%), this difference was not statistically significant. This suggests that screening with colonoscopy and breast examination may be a reasonable approach in patients who have a family history of colorectal or breast cancers, but caution must be used in order to avoid a significant overdiagnosis of occult cancers in family members.
The majority of gynecology residents reported wanting to discuss sexual health resource utilization and had never had their desire met by a reproductive health provider. There could be an opportunity to recruit new providers with a focus on sexual health resources.
There is more than adequate support for the provision of sexuality related information and counselling in UK clinics. In a recent study, findings have led us to conclude that there is a need for this counselling to encompass all types of women who are being examined with respect to their sexual and menopausal health-related concerns in an integrated, holistic way.
There appears to be a trend towards an association of [endometrial cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/endometrial-cancer) and colorectal neoplasia, although with a few exceptions including endometrial cancer in women with BRCA1 mutations. There also appears to be an association between Barrett's esophagus with stomach cancer and cervical or anal cancer in the setting of a history of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or cervical cancer. It is notable that cervical cancer occurs at a high rate after treatment of low-grade lesions with trichomonas vaginalis. Thus, endometrial cancer is considered a "late-appearing" end colorectal cancer. Gastric cancer is an occupational cancer in H.
