Non communicable diseases are form a major bulk of patients in our country and are now the target of policy makers in India. Cancer is a cause of significant morbidity and mortality and that needs to be tackled aggressively. The current study is a review and analysis of patients attending the Gynecological Oncology department of a tertiary care center of Bihar. We have found that cancer of the cervix is the most common genital malignancy in our region however but most cases are diagnosed at later stage and not detected in the operable stages. Cancer cervix is followed closely by cancer of the ovary. Thus we conclude that to bring down the rates of cervical cancer in India the government like its western counterparts needs to implement strict screening guidelines and strengthen our primary health centers and community health centres with facilities for screening.
