Uterine or Endometrial Cancer

About Your Care and Condition

Uterine or endometrial cancer starts when cells in the inner lining of the uterus begin to grow out of control. This is often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding, which should prompt women to see their doctors. 

Vaginal bleeding after menopause occurs in the vast majority of cases and should be evaluated by a doctor. Other symptoms of uterine cancer include bleeding between periods, an abnormal, watery discharge and pelvic pain.
