Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer
Unexpected vaginal bleeding after menopause is the most common symptom of endometrial cancer.
If you are taking hormone therapy after menopause, you can expect some bleeding. But if you have irregular bleeding, call your doctor.
Before menopause, abnormal bleeding or vaginal discharge are rarely signs of endometrial cancer. They are usually signs of other conditions, such as hormone changes.
Symptoms of more advanced endometrial cancer include:
- Pain in the pelvic area.
- A pelvic lump.
- Weight loss.
Symptoms of endometrial cancer can be mistaken for those of another condition, such as Reference endometriosis Opens New Window.
