To analyze the pattern of occurrence of female genital tract (FGT) cancers at a tertiary care centre in Northern India in last one decade (2007-2016). In this retrospective study, data was collected for the past 10 years from department of radiotherapy KGMU, Lucknow and analyzed with SPSS software. A total of 30,705 patients with malignancy were registered, 13,482 (43.91%) were females, of which 5717 (18.62%) were diagnosed with female genital tract cancers. The trend shows that the number of patients presenting with FGT cancers had been doubled in 2016 comparison to that in 2007, though the proportion of FGT cancers out of patients presenting with any malignancy remain similar. Cancer cervix is the major bulk followed by cancer ovary and cancer endometrium. Cancer vulva and vagina are less common but their number is also increasing every year. On average, FGT cancers represent one fifth of all malignancies and one half of all malignancies in females with no significant rise in presentation throughout last ten years. Increasing awareness for FGT malignancies is the need of hour.
