Gynaecological tumours

These are cancers that develop in the uterus, ovaries, tubes, more rarely, vulva and vagina. The prognosis of patients has improved significantly in the last decade thanks to increased knowledge of molecular biology and the application of a multidisciplinary approach, with the concomitant or sequential use of surgery, radiotherapy and medical therapy.
