Endometrial Cancer

content developed with: http://www.mdanderson.org/

Symptoms may vary from woman to woman, and many gynecological cancers, including endometrial, ovarian, and cervical cancers, have some of the same symptoms. If a woman has gone through menopause, it is especially important to report any unusual signs and symptoms. The most common symptoms of endometrial cancer are:

  • Vaginal postmenopausal bleeding
  • Premenopausal or perimenopausal bleeding: spotting, bleeding between periods, or heavy periods. It is common for women diagnosed with endometrial cancer to have some type of abnormal vaginal bleeding.
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pelvic pain or pressure, usually occurring in the later stages of the disease
  • Weight loss

Most of these symptoms do not mean you have cancer, but if you notice one or more symptoms for more than two weeks, see your doctor.
