If you are a trans man, you are non-binary or you are intersex, you may still be at risk of some gynaecological cancers if you have retained your reproductive organs (womb, cervix, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva) and should know what symptoms to look out for and how you can look after your gynaecological health.
The Eve Appeal understand that thinking and talking about your gynaecological health might be difficult and there is very little information out there which is relevant and accessible. That is why they have put together this information to help you access the healthcare you need. Gynaecological cancers, if caught early, are treatable, and cervical cancer is potentially preventable, so it is important to speak to your GP if you notice any worrying symptoms, or changes.
Depending on any surgeries or hormonal interventions you have had, your risk of gynaecological cancers may change, and it is important to know what risks you should be aware of and the symptoms relevant to you.
