||The purpose of this study is to statistically compare the mean ages of the patients with gynecologic cancer in our hospital during the 2000-2004 interval. The data was collected from the Histopathology Exams (HPE) registers. During the five year period, a number of 619 gynecological cancers were diagnosed in our hospital by the anatomopathology department: 367 cervical cancers (59.29%), 191 uterine cancers (30.86%), 50 ovarian cancers (8.08%), and 11 vulvar cancers (1.78%); the histological specimens were obtained from biopsies and/or surgery. The mean ages were 53.66±13.29 years for cervical cancer (age range 23-86 years), 61.41±8.82 years for uterine cancer (age range 38-82 years), 54.44±13.84 years for ovarian cancer (age range 21-77 years); vulvar cancer (age range 53-77 years) did not have a normal distribution of the cases. The age groups with the most patients were: 41-50 years for cervical cancer (104 cases or 28.34%), 51-60 years for uterine cancer (81 cases or 42.41%), 51-60 and 61-70 years for ovarian cancer (14 cases or 28% each), and 61-70 years for vulvar cancer (4 cases or 36.36%). After performing Student’s test, the statistically significant difference was cervical cancer vs uterine cancer(p<0.05). The mean ages of different cancer types in uor study are similar to those in literature.
