Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer also referred to as endometrial cancer. It is a tumor that originates from the innermost lining of the uterus. The uterus or womb is a hollow organ located within the female pelvis.

  • Uterine cancer begins in the uterus, in a woman’s pelvis where a baby grows during pregnancy.
  • A woman’s hormone balance plays a role in the development of most uterine cancers.
  • While abnormal bleeding is a common sign of uterine cancer, vaginal bleeding or spotting, abnormal vaginal discharge and pelvic pain or pressure are other noted symptoms.
