Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this study is to statistically compare the mean ages of the patients with gynecologic cancer in our hospital during the 2000-2009 interval.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

The data was collected from the Histopathology Exams (HPE) registers.

RESULTS:

Gynecologic cancer was discovered in 1244 cases: 731 cervical cancers, 392 uterine cancers, 82 ovarian cancers, 31 vulvar cancers and eight vaginal cancers.The mean ages were 52.94±12.96 years for cervical cancer (age range 22-87 years), 61.71±9.06 years for uterine cancer (age range 38-85 years), 51.46±14.28 years for ovarian cancer (age range 18-77 years), and 65.90±9.65 years for vulvar cancer (age range 39-81 years).After performing Student's test, the statistically significant differences were: cervical vs uterine (p<0.000001), cervical vs vulvar (<0.000001), uterine vs ovarian (<0.000001), uterine vs vulvar (<0.05), and ovarian vs vulvar (p=0.000001). Cervical and ovarian cancer mean ages were not significantly different (p=0.33).

CONCLUSIONS:

The mean ages of the patients from the groups with five gynecological cancer types from our study are similar to those in literature. Existing screening measures must be applied and new ones must be implemented in order to reduce the burden of gynaecological cancers.
