Endometrial cancer


Uterine cancer (endometrial cancer) begins in the lining of the womb (uterus).


A key sign is abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding after menopause or bleeding between periods. Other symptoms include pelvic pain and pain during sex.


Treatments include surgery to remove the uterus, radiation, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, targeted drug therapy and immunotherapy.
