Neoplasms of the Reproductive System

Neoplasms of the Reproductive System

by Carlo Raj, MD

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.

efficient

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.

 
too cold
By Lopira M. on 18. November 2021 for Clinical Anatomy of Breast Cancer

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
