Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (GTD)
GTD involves unusual growth of uterine cells that would normally form the placenta during a healthy pregnancy. This type of cancer is treatable, and many women affected by GTD are able to have regular pregnancies.
Primary Peritoneal Cancer (PPC)
PPC occurs when cells in an area of the body grow in an abnormal way. PPC is a relatively rare cancer that develops most commonly in women. PPC is a close relative of epithelial ovarian cancer, which is the most common type of malignancy that affects the ovaries. The cause of primary peritoneal cancer is unknown, but it is important for women to know that it is possible to have PPC cancer even if their ovaries have been removed.
For more information on these rare cancers please consult with your doctor or gynaecologist.
