Diseases

Womb Cancer

Cancer that forms in tissues of the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis in which a fetus develops). Two types of uterine cancer are endometrial cancer (cancer that begins in cells lining the uterus) and uterine sarcoma (a rare cancer that begins in muscle or other tissues in the uterus).

SYMPTOMS

  • Unusual vaginal bleeding. bleeding that starts after menopause. bleeding between periods in premenopausal women. heavy frequent bleeding before or during menopause 
  • Unusual vaginal discharge. foul smelling. pus-like. blood tinged.
  • Pain during intercourse.
  • Pelvic pain or pressure.

CAUSES

The most important risk factor for endometrial cancer has to do with the hormone estrogen. Estrogen stimulates the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) to grow. Women with high levels of estrogen in their bodies are at increased risk of endometrial cancer.
