Potential risks:

Risk factors will largely depend on the type of cancer, although its appearance is more frequent in women over 30 years old, who have a family history, are overweight or obese, who smoke, drink alcohol in excess, are carriers of the Human Papillomavirus or have sexually transmitted diseases.

Symptoms

You may have different signs and symptoms depending on the type of cancer. However, some of the most common signs in gynecologic cancers are vaginal bleeding not attributable to the menstrual period, loss of body weight, fatigue, and pain in the abdominal, lumbar, or pelvic area.
