Tumors of the reproductive system can be either malignant or benign. Cancers of the female reproductive system—namely cancer of the uterine cervix (cervical cancer); cancer of the uterine corpus; ovarian, vulvar, vaginal, fallopian tube cancers; and choriocarcinoma—are important causes of cancer morbidity and mortality worldwide. Cervical, endometrial, and ovarian cancers are relatively common, whereas choriocarcinomas and vulvar, vaginal, and fallopian tube cancers are very rare. Notably, cervical cancer is a largely preventable disease with the advent of vaccination and screening.
Often, cancers of these organs are heavily influenced by hormones, derive from hormone-secreting cells, or both. This means that several of them may have unique presentations (e.g., hirsutism or virilization) or have specific risks (e.g., nulliparity or obesity) that help in narrowing diagnoses.
Very clearly articulated and organized. I like the quick break down of the NGCTs.
I like the last table showing main differences of the different types of tumors.
The professor seems to be too cold and the video could have way more images and interactions. I don't like this kind of video
Very Nice Lecture. He has a unique way of teaching topics and make us remember stuff and give a foundation on medicine. His Integrative Teaching method is very Good. Perfect Lecturer for Pathology
