Endometrial Cancer

This cancer forms in the tissue lining the uterus, the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman’s pelvis in which a fetus develops. Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas—cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids.

Symptoms:

  • Bleeding or discharge not related to menstruation
  • Difficult or painful urination
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pain in the pelvic area

Treatment:

Different treatments are available for patients with endometrial cancer, including clinical trials of new treatments for patients with cancer.
