In This Edition

  • Evaluate a woman’s family history to determine whether she might have an increased risk of endometrial cancer.
  • Choose the appropriate initial test (ie, transvaginal ultrasound or endometrial biopsy) to evaluate pre- or postmenopausal women with abnormal vaginal bleeding.
  • Recommend human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for prevention of cervical cancer for female and male children according to current practice guidelines.
  • Perform cervical cancer screening using Papanicolaou and HPV testing at intervals recommended by current guidelines, and appropriately evaluate abnormal test results.
  • Recognize the nonspecific symptoms that may be caused by ovarian cancer and evaluate patients with appropriate diagnostic tests.
  • Select appropriate screening tools to evaluate patients with a family history that may be associated with BRCA gene mutations. If evaluation results are positive, refer patients for genetic counseling.
  • Assess a vulvar skin lesion to determine whether it has characteristics that warrant biopsy to rule out vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia or vulvar cancer.
  • Identify the chronic vulvar skin disorder that is a common precursor to non–HPV-related vulvar cancer.
