The kahun papyri are sometimes referred to as the Lahun papyri.
Several fragments can be found at digitalegypt, the online site of University College London
http://www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk/lahun/papyri.html

The digitalegypt website mentions:
Griffith 1898. Francis Ll. Griffith, The Petrie Papyri. Hieratic Papyri from Kahun and Gurob, 2 vol., London: B. Quaritch, 1898

There are different papyri that are treated in separate publications:

The Kahun Gynaecological Papyrus: ancient Egyptian medicine. Smith L. J Fam Plann Reprod Health Care. 2011 Jan; 37(1):54-5.

Gynaecology from ancient Egypt: The papyrus Kahun: A translation of the oldest treatise on gynaecology that has survived from the ancient world.
Stevens JM. Med J Aust. 1975 Dec 20-27;2(25-26):949-52.

For the mathematical papyri:

Annette Imhausen, Jim Ritter: Mathematical Fragments, In: Marc Collier, Stephen Quirke: The UCL Lahun Papyri: Religious, Literary, Legal, Mathematical and medical, Oxford 2004, ISBN 1-84171-572-7, 84-85

Clagett, Marshall Ancient Egyptian Science, A Source Book. Volume Three: Ancient Egyptian Mathematics (Memoirs of the American Philosophical Society) American Philosophical Society. 1999 ISBN 978-0-87169-232-0;

I'm not sure which papyri you are looking for.
