Abstract

To better understand pathology reports, gynecologic oncologists must be familiar with the terminology used in gynecologic pathology. This chapter of the FIGO Cancer Report 2018 summarizes the clinical and pathological features of the most common cancers of the female genital tract, as well as their main molecular genetic alterations. In selected cases, an approach for processing surgical specimens is also included.
