I have been given an assignment in which I have to write about the different types of cancers. I keep searching on the internet and have written about most of them. I would appreciate if someone could provide me information on reproductive system cancer at the earliest possible.

    The most common type of reproductive system cancer in males is called Testicular Cancer while in case of females there are two common types; the Uterine Cancer and Ovarian cancer.


    Testicular Cancer


    It is a kind of a malignant tumor that is found in younger men of around 30 years of age. It originates from the primordial germ cells, with the least malignant being a seminoma. The most common symptom for this cancer is a scrotal mass that steadily grows in size thus causing pain. The only treatment for this cancer is the removal of the affected testis and examination of the appropriate lymph nodes.


    Ovarian Cancer 


    A cancer of the ovaries, the egg in the ovary of a female reproductive system fails to release from the follicle, thus resulting in the formation of an ovarian cyst.


    Uterine Cancer


    It is commonly known as Endometrial cancer which starts in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus (womb) and results in certain disorders like:



          
    • Abnormal uterine bleeding

    •
