Recognizing Gynecologic Problems

Gynecological signs and symptoms that may require medical attention.

Vaginal bleeding and discharge are a normal part of your menstrual cycle prior to menopause. If you notice anything different or unusual, consult your health care provider before attempting to treat the problem yourself.

Symptoms may result from mild infections that are easy to treat. But, if they are not treated properly, they can lead to more serious conditions, including kidney damage. Vaginal symptoms may also be a sign of more serious problems, such as cancers of the reproductive tract.

Saint Barnabas Medical Center is committed to being your partner offering education, screening, and diagnostic tools to detect and treat oncology care for women with cancer. We are dedicated to providing quality treatment, designed to address the needs of individuals with various forms of cancer at different stages of illness. Because a cancer diagnosis affects the entire family, we offer multi-dimensional services targeted for our patients and their families.

Recognizing symptoms early and seeing a health care provider right away increase the likelihood of successful treatment.
