Common symptoms of gynecologic cancers include: 

  • Abnormal bleeding or vaginal discharge 
  • Abdominal or back pain 
  • Bloating 
  • Changes in bathroom habits 
  • Changes in vulva or skin color (rash, sores, warts) 
  • Itching and/or burning vulva 
  • Pelvic pain or pressure 

See your doctor right away if you have unusual or severe vaginal bleeding, or symptoms that last more than two weeks. 

Convenient timing is not a trait of GYN cancers.

Check the Symptoms Chart of Gynecologic (GYN) Cancers. Not all women with gynecologic cancer will have the same symptoms. Symptoms can be difficult to recognize because they may be related to other conditions.
